I'd like to make some stuffed felt letters for the baby. I've seen various versions around; here are some http://www.etsy.com/listing/55930281...phabet-letters . Very cute but I think they are too expensive for synthetic felt and I don't get the feeling it is a crafts business anymore. Weird aggrandizing language on the website gives me a very off feeling.

Anyone have a pattern suggestion?

I had looked for those, too. I ended up finding a pattern in a circa 70's book in my library called the Easy to Make Toys. I think those super 70's craft books are rad, and there may be others that have that sort of thing- after finding them there I saw similar things in others (the Big Book of Soft Toys had some too, I think). You might want to peruse the outdated craft section of your library for the oldies but goodies like those.
If i could find the time to make them.. that's another story.

Is it getting lonely in the echo chamber yet?

and it's funny that we both fixated on those felt letters, too!
