Soft and squeezable, terry-cloth-covered foam blocks are just the right size for baby to grab.

Cut six 4-1/2"/11.3-square pieces of terry cloth, leaving 1/4"/6mm seam allowance.


Print out this pattern and cut out.

Trace patterns onto paper side of fusible webbing.

Place fusible side down on wrong side of gingham and press, following manufacturer's instructions.

Cut out appliques; remove paper backings and press onto sides of block as pictured.


With wrong sides facing up, sew four squares into a strip using straight stitch. Sew ends of strip together to form a loop.
