I totally love cloth baby toys, and I found this great tutorial over at Make It and Love It for making a cloth baby cube. I just finished making one, and I didn’t think it took very long at all! The next one I make will probably go even faster. I’ll explain what I did here, but for the more complete tutorial, visit Make It and Love It.
Cut 6 squares out of fabric. (I used fabrics from my little bird project.) I made mine exactly 5×5 inches, but you can make whatever size you would like.Take your first two squares and sew one seam with the right sides together, using a 1/4″ seam allowance. Repeat to connect four squares together in a row.Sew the first square to the fourth square so you have what looks like a box with no top or bottom.
With your remaining two squares, cut 1/4″x1/4″ notches out of the corners. Pin the fifth square to your “box” and sew, making sure your corners are square. (This was the trickiest step. It didn’t make sense to me until I started doing it.)
Repeat on the other end with the final square, leaving a hole for you to turn it. (Sorry for all these carpet shots… I do my best work on the floor.)Turn your cube right-side-out, poke out the corners, stuff, and sew the hole shut.
Ta-da! Beautiful. Now go make one of your own!Linked to:
