I am so excited that the Sew Special Baby Gifts book from Annie's Catalog is finally here! I am one of several contributors to this book and I am so thrilled with the final product. It's a book I would buy even if my pattern weren't in it! Projects include a 'fun to touch' playmat, sweet giraffe plush by Ahmelie, handy nursing cover by Little Lizard King, hats, booties, bibs and more.
My contribution is the Peek a Boo Baby Block, it even made the back cover!
With a photo endorsement like that, how could it not? The block babies love to munch.
I designed the Peek A Boo block to be easy for babies to hold and to be made from fabrics of varied textures. It can be stuffed with a squeaker or other noisemaker, and features a easy to open 'peekaboo' flap that reveals ... well, whatever you have decided to feature on the block face beneath ... a sock monkey, robot, kitty, baby-mesmerizing black-white-and-red design, or maybe a cute lil' lion face. The flap itself can be lined with crinkly cello for added baby fun.
The Peek a Boo Block sample featured in the book uses several prints from the adorable Robert Kaufman Lion, Roar! fabric line, some other fun bright prints, and textured chenille, with a squeaker inside and a crinkly flap.
Wouldn't you like to make one just like it?
For FREEEEE? (cue Adam Sandler from Bedtime Stories!)
I'm giving away a copy of this book plus a kit to make your own like the one you see featured. The kit includes 8 pre-cut fabric squares including that Lion, Roar! and the yummy chenille, a craft squeaker, crinkle material, patterned ribbon and even the little piece of hook-and-loop tape you'll need. You supply the stuffing, thread and love. I only have one kit, but I'll have a second place prize of the book by itself.
I'm going to make this real easy - just leave a comment to enter! For a bonus entry, share this giveaway and then make a second post letting me know specifically where you shared the link. Be sure I have a way to get in touch with you! Entries close Monday 4/8 and I'll draw a winner via Random.org. So sorry, due to the cost of postage, entries are limited to US residents only.
