I love blocks. And I love felt boards. They're both terrific toys for open-ended, creative play. Put them together and you get . . . The Felt Blocks. They're shaped and proportioned like classic unit blocks, but they're flat, like classic felt board pieces. Rearrange them into anything you can imagine.
They're tactile. The French knots are delightfully bumpy and the split stitch makes nice raised stripes that are interesting to touch.
They can easily be stashed in a purse or bag. They're quiet. They're beautiful. They're very easy to make.

Talk to Me
If you're hiring out any part of the process, please get in touch and we'll work out a fair licensing agreement.
For example, if you want to hire someone to die cut all the felt pieces for you, or want to manufacture kits for this design, those two scenarios would require a licensing agreement. Get in touch! I'm easy to talk to. :-) firstname.lastname@example.org
