    I bought a few charm packs a while back...they caught my eye being so bright and vibrant. I didn't have a plan for them, but I knew I'd use them eventually. Well, they finally spoke to me :D I'm going to a little get together tomorrow. I'm a member of another forum for mom's. I was a member of a group of women who were all pregnant and due in April 2010. It turns out that a few of them live pretty close to me, and now that our babies are 6-7mos, we're meeting up for a pot luck lunch and play date for the babies. I decided to make these for the babies, two boys, two girls (one of the boys is mine). :)

    Those look like lots of fun. I bet the babies are going to have so much fun with them.

    What a great idea, and what a huge savings. My DH bought our youngest a taggie on a vacation and it was pretty pricey.

    Super simple - I had a couple of charm packs and just picked 6 squares, you sew four squares together in a row, sticking the folded ribbons in which ever seams suit you, all the raw edges lined up (make sure you really reinforce the stitching over the ribbon, I had one come loose on my "test" block). Then at the second square from one end of your row of four, add one more square on each open side (again, with ribbons if you choose), then you sew the sides to make it a cube shape (again, ribbons, if you wanna). Leave enough of the top open to turn it, turn it, stuff it, stitch it closed and Done! You can find tutorials online for making fabric blocks, I just put my own twist on it! And my son (and the other babies) LOVE them! They're fun to play with and chew on!
