I've been wanting to get Minty some alphabet magnets for a while now, but the only ones I could find were those ugly plastic ones. My current rental kitchen is depressing enough without adding anymore tackiness. I'm not ashamed to say that sometimes aesthetics win out over education in this house. Plus the little magnets in the plastic letters always seem to drop out and pose a bit of a choking hazard for the smaller members of the household who are still compelled to place random objects in their mouths.
Inspiration struck when I found these fabric letters on pinterest. I whipped up a set for Minty's birthday. The fabric is all from my stash - some vintage sheets, a bit of liberty and lots of quilting cottons. MInty loves them and I don't mind having them cluttering up the fridge. Pretty and educational - everybody wins!
