I decided to spend the weekend making felt alphabets to decorate the living room – it wasn’t as hard as I thought it would be!
I bought felt from Daiso at $2 per pack of 5 – total $12 for 30 pieces. The felt measured 18 x 18cm. Then, using printed outlines of alphabets as stencils, I drew the letters onto the felt and cut out the alphabets.
Here’s my completed product! I stuck these felt letters onto the window and cupboards around the living room.
Samantha enjoys going up to the alphabets and touching them. I use these for tactile stimulation now. When she gets older, I intend to use them to teach her how to read and write the alphabets (by tracing the felt letters).
Here are some other websites for more (technically challenging) alphabet felt and related projects!
