Sensory Alphabet { A Pinterest challenge}

After getting my inspiration from Jessica's pin on Pinterest, I buckled down and got to sewing. I loved the idea of fabric letter but wanted to take it a little further and came up with the idea to use different fabrics, textures, and objects attached to the letters to create a sensory development alphabet.
(As you can see, I'm missing two... I ran out of thread last night before I could finish sewing them but they are cut and waiting to be sewed up I just couldn't bring myself to miss out on writing this post because of two missing letter -.-). 
The best part about these is that I managed to come up with 26 different sensory things; from zippers, leather and a pocket U to beads, fur, and buttons!
 Some of them are made flat, the way Jessica shows in her tutorial, and some I made stuffed with filling. 
I can't wait to spend more time with Button playing with these. He's a little young for them now (he won’t be able to play on his own with them until a least a month or understand the letters until at least three) but I did get him to hold one.

So I'm calling it a win!

  1. Those are ingenious and good for you for thinking up 26 different sensory activities on them. I'm also impressed that you were so forethoughtful to sew them when your baby is still a baby. They'll get used before you know it.

  2. Thanks a bunch. We are going to have so much fun with them in a month or two!♥

    1. Ha, thanks! I had a lot of fun making them and coming up with different ideas for each.♥

  4. These are so artsy and cute! I'll bet Melissa would love a set for her little princess, too. Matching cousin alphabets! :) Such a cute idea. And our little man seems to love the A! It's a good start. :D
