Fabric Letters...


I've made some more fabric letters for five little people, each set containing the letters of their name.


Once again, I've used felt as the backing fabric. Each set has the same coloured felt on the back of the letters. For some of the names, I've used my own felt, made from old woollen garments.


Two sets have been tied with a fabric scrap bow and are on their way to the little recipients via Australia Post.


Another two sets are being sent, one letter at a time, to the little recipients. And the fifth set is packed away, ready to send as part of a birthday present, later in the year.

These fabric letters are just so quick and easy to sew and a great way to use up scraps of fabric. To see how I made my last fabric letters and to see my inspiration for the letters, have a look at the fabric letters  tutorial.

Introducing pre-schoolers to the letters of their names can be done is so many fun ways. Here's a few that involve fabric...

  4. Two of these sets arrived in my mailbox this morning!! Thank you SO much Pam! The girls were thrilled to have something arrive in the mail for them. Anna has just learned to write her name so she recognised it immediately. I suspect they will be going to kinder for show and tell this afternoon :)

  14. When you first came out with this letter idea, I thought a lot of folks that have to put up bulletin boards could use this idea and enJOY using them over and over.
