I recently made a custom Etsy order for a fellow blogger, Heather at Crayon Box Chronicles. She requested a set of felt letters for her adorable baby girl - so I created a set of rainbow letters! I used a simple, easy-to-read font in uppercase letters that are about 3".

I used bright shades in red, orange, yellow, green, blue and purple felt. I did alter the I from the original font, but I kept the J as is. You can either hold the paper letter to the felt and cut around it or use a disappearing ink pen to trace it and then cut it.
See the difference in the J? I'll probably change the J in the future.
I sewed along the edges using a blanket stitch and filled them with Poly-Fil stuffing. I'm thinking about using Poly-Pellets for a future project. They are weighed stuffing beads, which would be great for sensory-sensitive children and could be used for all kinds of activities.
Aren't they lovely? This was such a fun project for me! I love creating educational toys for kids!
Updated:I found this adorable patterned felt at Target! It was fun fun to make this new set!
My kids love the designs.
I usually use a thread color that matches the felt, but this time I went with white on all of them and I love how they turned out,
