baby shower gifts, blah! i of course made the usual onsies and such but i wanted to make something a little different too, so i came up with these plush letters for the baby to play with (more like chew on). or her momma can do whatever with them.

they spell her name, ava. and of course they're no where near perfect as they are the first stuffed thing i've ever attempted.

each seperately




and all together


these pictures aren't too pretty, i'm aware. and of course the colors are off, but it's close! and the backs of the letters are solid colors. hot pink, teal, and black.

i hope she likes them! c&&&&&c Cheesy

These are really cute. I'm crafting for a baby shower right now and was thinking about doing the same sort of thing. Even though I sew a lot, I'm not the best at hand sewing, at it just seems to me that there'd be a lot of hand sewing needed to make the holes in the letters.

I love the fabric you used too. nice and bright.

Those would be really cute hanging on the wall above a crib, or even a smaller size made into a mobile. I love the bright fabrics you chose- lots of fun for the baby... and they're such a nice personal touch!!

i actually didn't hand sew any of it, i just twisted and shoved and well, made it work haha. it was confusing at first but if you play with it i'm sure you could figure it out!
