I had the idea to make these baby blocks from the famous baby Zakka book. My mum sent me a whole lot of small squares of different fabrics and so I decided to use them to make large and small blocks for babies. They have bells in them and so make a noise besides being colourful. The embroidered patterns come from the Japanese book 'Design Collection for Kids' and another one (I'm not sure what it's called), and also from 'Doodle Stitching' which I purchased from Amazon books. I love this book and want to create more with the lovely patterns. Some more images on flickr.
