Moving along to the letter R this week. I’m feeling a bit more ambitious again as we are heading towards the end of the alphabet… only seven more to go :).
I’m still planning on making mats out of these, so hopefully soon I’ll get to my first one so you can see what I’m doing… With that said, these squares are great for baby blankets and other fun stuff.
See the rest of the blocks here: Tapestry Alphabet Blocks.
