The first set of fabric covered foam blocks were made for Granddaughter Ursula in time for our Thanksgiving trip to Little Rock, AR. This set was made for Granddaughter Isabelle (aka Izzy) and mailed off Friday to Fayetteville, NC. My Aunt Pat came up with the idea and cut up dozens of squares--I stitched them together with foam block inserts. They are kid friendly and, even when thrown, won't cause damage. Thanks, Aunt Pat, for this great idea!
