Create Baby Blocks:

  • If you do not have pre-cut squares of plastic canvas, take a few minutes to cut your canvas into squares as indicated in the materials list above.
  • Begin by using the patterns given for A,B & C to create all six block sides for the ABC block.

Assemble the Baby Block Toys:

  • Join each pair of block sides. (Photo 1)
    • Pick a color of yarn to use, thread the needle and tie a knot in the end of the yarn.
    • Line up the holes of each block piece.
    • Start at one corner hole and bring your need all the way through from the wrong side.
    • Next go through the adjacent hole in the other piece from the right side through to the wrong side.
    • Continue joining the piece by looping through each pair of holes in this manner.
    • Finish your end of yarn by feeding it through a few stitches on the wrong side.
  • Join two of the pairs together. (Photo 2)
    • Set two of the joined pairs together along their L shaped sides.
    • Join them together in the same "looping through pairs of holes" manner as above.
  • Attach the last pair onto the others. (Photo 3)
    • Join them together in the same manner as above but before closing up the last side, drop 4 Christmas type jingle bells into the block.
    • Finish closing up the last open side.
    • To secure the end of your yarn on the last side, feed the needle and yarn up through 4 or 5 loops along one of the corners and then through a few more.
    • Trim the end.

Done!
A Fun Baby Toy for your baby or as a Baby Shower Gift.
