How To Make Easy Sew Baby Blocks From Fabric

supplies needed for fabric baby blocks

The first step to make these easy sew baby blocks is to cut the fabric to the size you need. You will need two of each of the three fabrics in a 5″x5″ size. Note that this tutorial shows you how to make one baby block from fabric. Repeat these steps for desired number.

clipping fabric together

Lay four pieces in a row face up. I have one of each piece, then the 2nd one of the same for the end piece. Then take each square and lay it face down on the one next to it and pin it in place along that connecting side. Do this until all 4 pieces are clipped/pinned together in a row. These baby blocks are really simple to make.

sewing the edges

Sew the pieces together along those pinned sides. You will use a 1/4 seam allowance with a backstitch at the start and finish. Start about 1/4 inch down and stop about 1/4 inch from the end.

sewing corners

Start at the second piece in the row (does not matter which end) and clip the last to pieces to each side of that piece just as you did with the first row. Then sew them in place just as before.

Now we need to start making the block take shape. Line the edge of the two fabrics next to each other and clip them in place. Do this on all but one side. You are about halfway through this easy sew baby blocks from fabric tutorial!

laying out the blocks of fabric

Sew along those clipped edges, making sure not to sew through to any other layers. This time we will be sewing all the way to the end. Be sure to do a backstitch at the start and finish.

On that last side, line it up and clip it in place. This time we will be leaving about a 2-inch opening. Sew it the same as the others making sure to go all the way to the end at the start and do a backstitch at the start and finish. Just be sure to leave that 2-inch opening.

turning the block inside out

Through that opening turn the whole thing right-side out. Use your finger or the end of a pencil to make sure the corners are pushed out. We are almost finished with this easy sewing tutorial!

adding stuffing to the block

Now it’s time to make our baby blocks plush. Start adding the stuffing through that opening that you left. How full you want it is up to you. I did not pack mine super full as I wanted it to have a little give for the baby to be able to grab it. After you have it about halfway stuffed, place the noise maker in the middle (if you are using one) then fill the rest of the stuffing over and around it. I made some with the noise makers in them and some without for my own sanity. 🙂

The last step in this easy sew baby blocks From fabric tutorial is to stitch that opening closed. Fold the raw edges in by about 1/4 inch. Then using a needle and thread sew along the edge using a whip stitch. I like to tie a knot at the start and finish to hold it in place. With working with slightly fuzzy fabric like we are, this stitching can not even be seen when done.
