Five Handmade Alphabets that You Can Craft from Recycled, Upcycled, or Natural Materials

plush alphabet magnets with tutorial from Chez Beeper BebeIf you’d like a stuffed alphabet that’s less fiddly to make than my turned and sewn and neatly hemmed stuffed alphabet, check out this plush alphabet tutorial from Chez Beeper Bebe. This alphabet uses up any fabric of your choice and stash quilt batting, and uses a clever construction technique that makes each letter quick and simple to sew.

If you think this alphabet is sweet and smart by itself, you’ve got to see the ingenious way that Chez Beeper Bebe turned each letter into a magnet!

I'm a writer, crafter, Zombie Preparedness Planner, and homeschooling momma of two kids who will hopefully someday transition into using their genius for good, not the evil machinations and mess-making in which they currently indulge. I'm interested in recycling and nature crafts, food security, STEM education, and the DIY lifestyle, however it's manifested--making myself some underwear out of T-shirts? Done it. Teaching myself guitar? Doing it right now.

Visit my blog Craft Knife for a peek at our very weird handmade homeschool life, and my etsy shop Pumpkin+Bear for a truly odd number of rainbow-themed beeswax pretties.
