These easy plastic canvas baby blocks make great baby shower gifts.  They are quick and easy to make and allow you to try out any stitch/pattern you can think of.  When I gift these, I usually make a set of 8 in different colors.  I use Caron Simply Soft (4-ply worsted weight yarn) because I like the light sheen of the yarn and I find it easy to work with.  You can use any type of yarn you prefer, but I’ve found the worsted weight works best for these. 

I will also sew little jingle bells into the inside of the blocks so they make some noise when played with.  By sewing them into the block, in the event the block breaks the bell stays in place and doesn’t become a choking hazard. 

 I’ve only ever had my blocks break when an older sibling attempts to stand on them.  Always check the blocks for possible breakage before allowing children to play with them, please supervise children while they play with these plastic canvas blocks.
