Building Blocks

 Using some old fabric I have, I first made a tiny square stencil so my squares would be around the same size
 I then cut out a square
 Did it 6 times
 The took the first two squares and sewed them together with a simple stitch.
 One more block and we will be ready to sew it into a block.
 It's taking shape! :)
 What it looks like on the inside
Now what it looks like on the outside. Put cotton in it and then close it up and block is all done. Do this till you have the number of blocks you want.

 I decided to make these because I realized how expensive the cloth blocks are in stores (some up to $20+). So I wanted to make it homemade and cheap and there it is.
