It's called a 'Yoshimoto Cube' or a 'magic cube'.  You can usually find them in plastic with coloured sides, or wood with pictures.  This is the first one I've ever seen in fabric, I love it!  Smiley

wow this is awesome! I want to make one now!

To try and find the pattern, i googled "folding cube fabric pattern" ...I didn't really find it but the first link is this: http://hk.myblog.yahoo.com/chingwa-golgol/article?mid=91

Its not fabric but it tells you how to construct it out of paper. Maybe it will help!

Hi,  Thanks for this link.  Just had a quick look, and shouldn't be too difficult to transfer to a fabric version (famous last words LOL) providing I can get some sponge cubes to go in it.

Have a few things on the go at the moment, but this is one I am definitely, definitely going to have to attempt.

Amazing Smiley

OH NO -the vid is no longer availale Sad Sad  I know YouTube have just pulled a load of videos due to disagreements about artists fees, but should this be one of them?  or did you remove it yourself?  Would really like to see it - just to see it in action so to speak.

I figured it out (I think)

Can I post a tutorial, sense I figured it out without a pattern or is that not ok?

I have one of these from the science museum! It has pics of dinos and stuff on it, and I bought it so I could try to make one. I never thought to make one out of fabric, so I'm totally thinking in a new direction now!

Thanks for posting your project, cause I'm totally stealing your idea Wink
