How to Make Baby Soft Blocks

Sharing is caring!

Hey friends! As I mentioned last week in my DIY Iron-On Sewing Bins post, I decided it was time to start sewing again! And being that I haven’t really sewed in the last nine years, I figured it was good to start with a super beginner project! So, today I’m going to show you How to Make Baby Soft Blocks.

When I went searching for a good beginner project, I searched through the 50 free sewing projects from the Cricut Design Space. I knew I wanted to choose something baby related, because my oldest niece is about to have her first baby and I can’t wait to spoil the crap out of the kid! 

If you have a Cricut Maker, then you can just search in Design Space for the Baby Softie Blocks. It will have the pattern all ready for you to just place the fabric onto your Fabric Mat and load the mat into your machine and make all the cuts! Then you can just follow the easy instruction below to sew it together! It really makes it as easy as 1-2-3! 

The Cricut Maker can making sewing 10x easier by cutting the fabric for you! Come see these Soft Baby Blocks! From www.overthebigmoon.com

But, if you don’t have a Cricut Maker, no big deal! Here are the instructions:

How to Make Baby Soft Blocks

These instructions are for ONE 4″ x 4″ block. So, if you’re making multiple blocks, then you’ll need to repeat the below instructions for each block.

Cut all six coordinating fabrics into 4″ x 4″ squares. Arrange them into a cross shape that is two squares long on one of the cross arms.

Stitch the block pieces together along the edges, with the right sides together. When sewing the sides together, do not sew the 1/8″ or so on the edges of the corners. I like to take a washable fabric pen to mark the approx corner spots. By leaving that additional space, it will allow the corners to fold in properly when finished. Make sure to use a backstitch at the beginning and ends of each sew line. See the below picture.

I like to start with the 4 pieces around the center fabric. Then, sew the additional square on the cross arm. And then assemble into an inside out box, creating a box with an open flap top.

Sew two sides of the top flap closed. Then on the last side, sew it 1/2 way closed.

Turn the block right side out. Use a pencil eraser or something with a blunt end to push all the corners out all the way.

Stuff the block with Poly-Fil Fibre Fill.

Hand sew the last side of the block closed using a whipstitch.
