    You can use the letter just as it is (blocking it) but I will be making 2 of each and crochet them together with a single crochet stitch and stuffing them for more puffy look. I will also be making two small chain 2 loops on top and and two on the bottom to string the letter. You can skip that if you don't want the small loops for the sting to run along.
