My sister had a daughter a few weeks ago (yay!) so I made her some plush letters for the wall (or to act as pillows). I had made some before for my sister-in-law's daughter, so this was my second go at doing them.



They are done in pink and white fluffy fabric. My sister's husband LOVES them (and hopefully my niece will too, when she's a little older). They added velcro to the backs to hang them on the wall.

So cute.  Did you use a pattern for the letters?

I made my own pattern of sorts; I printed out big letters and (after measuring out all the sides of each letter) cut out side sections. I go more into it here - I make it sound waaay more complicated than it actually is!

This is such a cute idea. Would be good for small children who are learning words, you can get them to put the letters in the right order.

I highly second the notion of the letters being able to help kids learn about letters.  My 17 month old son LOVES his bathtub letters and loves when I tell him what each letter is.  You could have a good business going with those letters if you could find a way to ship them economically.  You could do the letters in all sorts of awesome patterns and fabrics.
