Earlier this winter I sat down to create a Christmas gift for my grandson. I thought it would be very time-consuming but it only took me a few hours to complete. My grandson loves his letters and his mom helps him with learning his ABC’s.
I first made a fabric sandwich with quilt batting between two pieces of fabric. I used fusible batting so that I would not have to pin the fabric sandwich together. I cut each letter out and sewed each letter together.
My youngest daughter found a cigar box and painted a striped pattern that matched one of the fabrics I used. Then she painted my grandson’s name on the top of the box.My grandson and my oldest daughter were very surprised at Christmas to see this special gift.Happy Together has a more detailed tutorial and printable patterns for the letters and numbers.
