I love blocks. And I love Felt Boards. They're both terrific toys for open-ended, creative play. Put them together and you get . . . The Felt Blocks.
They're shaped and proportioned like classic unit blocks, but they're flat, like classic felt board pieces. Rearrange them into anything you can imagine.
They're tactile. The French knots are delightfully bumpy and the split stitch makes nice raised stripes that are interesting to touch.
They can easily be stashed in a purse or bag.
They're very easy to make.
Click on the photos to see close-ups of some of the blocks. You can make these!
You'll receive a full-sized pattern, a complete color and stitch guide, and instructions for making the blocks.
The designs look complicated, but they are really just the most basic stitches repeated over and over again. And the pattern has links to videos teaching you how to do all of them!
It'll take you a few days - maybe even a week - to make all the blocks. But embroidering felt is a delightful way to spend a week. . .
I'm on a mission to teach people to sew, quilt, and embroider. I design patterns especially for beginners and I never release a pattern until I have videos teaching you every skill you'll need to complete the project. Have fun!
