1) I used six 5 1/2 inch squares. I was only able to get four plaid squares from the little outfit I chose, so I used some navy from my stash for the remaining two blocks. I also cut out the two giraffe appliques from the outfit and machine appliqued them on to navy blocks.
2) I cut the ribbons into 4 inch strips. The ribbon had previously been used to wrap a baby gift I have been given. So it was free! I zig zagged the edges of the folded ribbon.
3) I then pinned the ribbons in place and sewed each seam of the block, one at a time, leaving a 2 inch gap to stuff it.
4) I used left over quilt batting to stuff it.
Cost: Free! And with a sentimental bonus, as you can reuse those cute outfits you don't want to part with.
Verdict? Baby approved.
