oh my, that's amazing. I'm making one right now.. but mine is only 6"! A tutorial would be nice! I was wondering how you did the corners. It looks like you machine appliqued everything but I don't get if you put it together first and then did the applique work or the other way around. Great job!

BTW, I think if I do make this for my boyfriend, I won't make it entirely from scratch.  I'd probably buy a foam ottoman in a darkish gray like the one here: http://www.overstock.com/Home-Garden/Deluxe-Memory-Foam-Cube-Ottoman/2519117/product.html - it has a removable microsuede cover and a 15x15x15" foam cube core with memory foam top and is relatively cheap, considering.  Then I would do the add-ons with a lighter gray and pink fabric to transform it.

Oh, I am so doing that. When I get around to doing anything, that is...

I did the appliqueing on the faces of the cube before I put it together, simply because I couldn't imagine trying to get the complete cube to cooperate with my machine.

That... is totally amazing.  I've been thinking about making a little mini companion cube... but that freaking ROCKS!  Just... don't throw it in an incinerator, ok?  (note: that part took me forever to do, because by that point I'd been literally talking to it... I was distraught.)

I promise that I won't let my boyfriend incinerate it!
