Block For Baby...

fabric baby block

A soft baby block, 3 inches square. Made using a mixture of plain & printed Japanese linen & some new & vintage fabric.

fabric baby block tag

A small linen tag with a cross stitched heart.

I dyed the pink linen myself (so the colour is a bit patchy) & then cross stitched it. These little blocks are such a great use for scrap fabric, more of these to come I think.

Super cute Christie! You are super talented (dying your own fabric into the bargain, doing that stitching, very impressive).

I love this, it's so sweet, especially the cross stitch and the little heart! I haven't had the time to read many blogs lately so I've just caught up on your last 20 or so posts and I am jealous! So much beautiful craftiness, I love all the christmas presents. I'm all inspired now, thanks!
