Hello,

I just wanted to share little things i've made for my 1yo little girl...
hope you'll loved them !

the "magic squares"




two cribs :


close up :




a garland made with scraps of fabrics


and a painted lampshade :


****************************************************

The Magic square tut !!!

material :
-8 blocks of condensed foam 5 cm x 5 cm / 2inches x 2 inches
-scraps of fabrics

1- cut in a piece of cardboard a rectangle of 5 cm x 10 cm / 2 inches x 4 inches
and a square of 5 cm x 5 cm / 2 inches x 2 inches to make a template (it's easier to draw the pattern in the fabric with a template!!!! )

2- with the templates, draw :

in the pale pink fabric : 4 squares and 2 rectangles
in the bright pink : 4 rectangles
in the yellow : 4 squares and 2 rectangles
in the violet : 4 squares and 2 rectangles
in the blue : 4 squares and 2 rectangles
in the green : 4 rectangles

3 - cut all the pieces with 0.5 cm / 1/8 inche for the seam allowance

4 - put the blocks together to have a 2 lines of 4 squares

to sew all the pieces you have to methodes, sew in place by hand directly on the blocks, or by machine like a did but then you need to reconstructed each time the entire block with the foam...

5- place the pieces of the  pale pink fabric like it's shown in the picture number 1, then put the violet ones and sew the edges to hold them with the pale pink... Do the same thing with the bright pink... You have also to sew the edges between the violet fabric and the briht pink one... (Never sew 2 pieces in the same color together !!!)

6- turn the entire block and put the yellow fabric like the picture number 2... sew like step 5

7- play with the block to show the bright pink face... sew like others step... see picture 3

8- play the show the violet face - put others violet pieces and blue ones... see picture 4

9- play the show the blue face - sew like shown in the picture 5

10- play again to show the empty face, fill with the green fabric, sew all edges had'nt been saw... see picture 6

11 - have fun !

hope it's clear enough... otherwise don' t hesited to ask me....

here the pictures :



*****************

pattern of the pinwheel



just cut your reversible materiel (2 pieces of fabrics glued together like i did, or paper, thin sheet of plastic...) following the pattern... put the pointes in the center of the cross, glue/stitch in place.... that's it !

I appreciate the blocks tutorial so much  Cheesy  I have two friends due in May and I think that would be fabulous gift.  If I get super ambitious I can embroider some of the sides as well.  I will be sure to post pictures for you.

Question- is condensed foam the soft stuff that you have for things like foamies (camping mattresses) or do you mean like styrofoam blocks?  Where do you buy it?

Yes, it's like the thing you have in a mattress... usually it's a big piece you need to cut in squares (people sending that cut it your you)... but i'm sorry I really don't know where you could find it in USA  Huh
I'm not sure in michael's, maybe jo-ann ?  Huh

I tried to make one of these but it was a disaster.   Sad  If someone else is planning on making one and doesn't mind taking pictures along the way, I'd appreciate it.

Your explanation was good, maybe I will take pics next time and you can show me where I went wrong  Smiley  I really want to make one and have lots of friends having/with babies so I will stubbornly try until I can do it!
