Felt Baby Cube
Colored felt for shapes
This felt cube sewing project is so versatile, it can be used as a kids toy or a pin cushion.
Start by cutting out 6 squares 8 inch (20cm) in size.
Using a blanket stitch join all the edges together to form a flat shaped cube. Leaving the Top square off. This will allow you to sew on the shapes and to fill it.
We used hand shaped pieces that were sewn onto the side, but you can find adhesive felt shapes in your craft store which are much faster and add more detail.
Soft filling works best for toys, but if you intend to use it as a needle holder try using something a little firmer like toy foam or a foam cube.
Sew the top on using the blanket stitch.
Make smaller ones for cat toys or larger ones for kids toys. Drop a bell in for a rattle effect.
