I found the idea for the ABC Felt Pillow on Martha Stewart’s website when B was only 12 months old but got so excited about it, I made it right then. Right now B is just getting interested in it (28 months).
It was SUPER easy to make and the supply list was very simple. Using the letter pattern on the website, I cut out the alphabet x2 and then I cut out each family member’s name in a different pattern of felt so that B could pick out the letters for the names easily. I store the letters in a pouch (also described in the directions) that slides into the back of the pillow cover.
Doesn’t sound like a project you want to take on right now? B also uses the letters I cut out on his felt board. So at the very least, check out the project instructions and save the letter pattern for later on.
