“I love these. Super cute and quick to make. I usually add a rattle inside.”

The bird blocks measure 4” x 4” x 4”. Instructions are included to make a chick, flamingo, cockatoo, owl, parrot and penguin. The blocks are stuffed with polyester fiberfill. They are just the right size for babies and toddlers, and can be made for girls and boys. Fleece is used for the bodies and wings so the birds are very soft! Cotton fabric is used for the appliqués and feet. Ribbon is used for the feathers on the cockatoo’s head.

This 7 page PDF e-pattern includes: full size patterns, materials list, detailed instructions written in English, and clear step-by-step color photographs.

Very cute and easy to sew! The perfect size for little baby hands to grab and play with. The directions were easy to follow and came together quickly. I added a large bell inside to make it a little more exciting for babies.
