I started with the block, this one was 4 1/4" square, then I took a piece from my scraps and made a 4 1/4" backing, sewed them RIGHT sides together leaving a space to turn it right sides out and fill. I filled it with crushed corn cob, I wanted to use crushed walnut shells but wasn't able to find any locally. After you fill then sew the opening shut and I used a button that I had for the middle. What do you think?
I was hoping to get more done in the sewing room, instead I did some stuff around the house I even made some chocolate chip cookies!
