Oh so cute. One of my regrets that I couldn't make for my kids those foam blocks are fun :)

they look fantastic - now my baby is 13, but I think with all the lovely scraps we all accumulate, they would make a lovely feature simply piled on the windowsill! Thanks!

Adorable! What a fun idea.

Oh, those are so sweet! I've just given up hope of turning a huge wodge of foam that I bought into a change mat, so maybe I'll turn it into some foam blocks instead...

Amanda Jane

such a good idea. the fabric choices are impeccable.


Your baby blocks are gorgeous!
Now I just have to find some foam!

Your little boy is adorable and what a great project. I need to start making some baby gifts and this is definitely inspiring, along with the oilcloth mat you wrote about a while back. Good stuff.

so happy i checked in! i've missed your posts....this is such a cute and clever project...and wouldn't they make the best shower treats?!


I agree! it's so nice to see this latest post from you. Your little Leo and those foam blocks are lovely and look very fun and satisfying to make. Hmm... would my 12 year old son think I was daft if I made some?!


oops also meant to ask this: who did you get to cut the foam into cubes for you? Was it a foam supplier or a fabric store?

Beautiful little blocks and really beautiful little boy!


So cute! I'm really glad your son likes them ... I made very similar soft blocks for my son when he was about that age and he rejected them. It was very funny, but also a bit disheartening. In retrospect I used batting instead of foam, maybe that was the problem. In any event, I'm very happy to have stumbled upon your beautiful blog.


I get very excited when you have a new post up! This is a very cute idea and you have a very cute baby


Oh my gosh these blocks are so cute! I just discovered your blog and am loving it! You have so many cute projects, can't wait to keep reading!


you are AMAZING! These are gorgeous


Oh, these are so lovely! I imagine it is also nice to use fabrics with different textures! Thanks so much for sharing them. All the best, a.


Sooo cute (the blocks and the baby)! What a great project!


Clearly Leo will be the kid with the best toys on the block! (best blocks on the block. :) )
