A few months ago, I had a go at making some soft baby cubes for decoration at a friend's baby shower. To my delight they were an absolute hit with her niece so I decided that Lara deserved a set of her own. Afterall, it is always a thrill to make things for someone who really appreciates them.
As with my first set, these include applique letters, with a picture on the reverse. I had particular fun stitching L for Lion and am extremely pleased with the results (unfortunately I need to work on my picture taking skills though - sorry!). There is also A for Alien, R for Rabbit and A for Apple (hopefully the worm won't gobble it all up before the post arrives). ;)
The fantastic thing about these cubes is that you can use different materials (cotton, minky, corduroy etc), applique and even tags for a completely different look and feel. It all depends on you! These particular ones are made with 100% cotton and are 9x9x9cm.
If you would like me to make some of these for a little friend in your life, please email me the particulars and we can work out a suitable (and affordable) price. I'm also thinking of working on a tutorial if anyone out there is interested. Please let me know.
Happy Birthday Lara. I hope you enjoy these cubes, too.
