Pattern Description:

Stacking blocks introduce size and space relationships, encourage imaginative play, gross motor skills and counting! Blocks are designed to be rigid yet soft so no boo boo's to toes or hardwood floors when they fall. At clean up time blocks fit neatly inside of each other for easy storage.

Machine wash; largest block is 7" square.
The tutorial contains 10 pages of instructions with 24 images, charts and photos to create this fun learning toy. Simple straight cuts and squares of fabric go together fast so no pattern pieces are included however detailed measurements and tips are provided. There is also a section about peltex, what it is and where to find this very common but mysterious stabilizer.
