Cloth Play Blocks

Hello all! I have recently introduced a new product to my Etsy shop. These cloth play blocks come in a variety of fabrics, patterns, colors and sizes and are lots of fun for baby to play with. Since joining the Etsy I have seen some absolutely beautiful fabrics and some amazing items made with these fabrics. I decided I wanted to pull out my mom's old Singer Featherweight sewing machine and learn to sew again. It is a very simple machine but I absolutely love it and it is perfect for me! I made my first play block for my adorable niece Sydney, who is now 4 months old. She instantly loved her block and I knew I had to make more! The SYDNEY block is constructed using Heather Bailey fabric - you can find them posted in my shop, Knitstyle by MMC. I soon had my first custom order to make a set of 3 blocks sizes small, medium and large in Heather Bailey fabric. Lucky for me, my buyer is a professional photographer and she took amazing photos of the blocks she ordered (click the photo at the top of this post for more photos). You can also view her work here: heatherwagnerphotography
I am currently working on another custom order of 3 orders
of the set of 3 block (small, medium, large). I have finished 2 of these sets and am so happy with the way they came out. I currently have 1 final block to construct before completing the order and can't wait to share this set with you too! These blocks will be going to a great Etsy Buyer who has been a pleasure to work with.
Here are my standard sizes:

Small: 3"x3"
Medium: 4-1/2"x4-1/2"

Large: 6-1/2"x6-1/2"







I am happy to do custom orders so please feel free to contact me with your interest!
