I saw a picture of these in a magazine years ago and ripped it out and put it in my 'file' of future projects. I can't believe it took me so long, or how easy they were. I cut the numbers and letters out of freezer paper with my Cricut, the letters were set to 7" and the numbers 2 1/4". Then I ironed the freezer paper to my fabric squares for a stencil. I got some black fabric paint and put one coat of paint on by dabbing a tough brush in and 'dotting' the fabric in the stencil. Then when all was dry, I measured carefully around one of them and cut a 16" square. I used that one to lay on top of the others and cut them the same size. Then I sewed, serged (because the fabric seemed like it would unravel!) and stuffed.
