Making Fabric Cubes: Baby Toys, Door Stops, and Ottomans!

Stash busting basically just means making a bunch of relatively quick projects to clear the decks and start fresh with less clutter. One of those projects was making different-sized fabric cubes.

Materials used:

– Charm pack squares – Squares of batting – Batting trimmings – Toy rattle inserts

Step 1: Lay out your squares

To start, arrange your 6 squares of fabric right side down in a cross or lower case formation.

Step 2: Quilt your sides (optional)

This step is totally optional but I chose to lightly quilt my charm pack squares onto batting of the same size. I just did straight-line quilting.

Sew the 4 squares for your sides in a row with a 1/4 seam allowance. For the two side ‘arms’ of your ‘t’ attach the remaining squares by sewing from seam to seam.

Step 3: Sew squares together in a ‘t’ shape

Step 4: Sew together the sides to form your cube

Now with your fabric right sides to right sides start sewing together sides that are closest to each other.

Turn your cube right side out and start filling. You can use batting scraps, fabric trimmings or polyfill (in a pinch) to fill your baby toy cube.
