I am crocheting a companion cube from the game Portal as a gift for another person.

Uploaded with ImageShack.us

I didn't think ahead and sewed the main dark grey squares together before I added the lighter grey accents, so now I have to deal with sewing these on through a slit I left to fill with stuffing later.

This is my first attempt at trying to crochet something 3D-ish, and I am having one major trouble. How do I end off something from the inside like this? I don't want the end on the outside, but because of the way I placed it together I can't knot really close to the material.  Does anybody know of an easier way to do this?  Huh

Sorry if I didn't make a lot of sense.

I do this sometimes with making stuffed toys where you have to add the details after stuffing (like faces).  What I would do is to pull the yarn back in through the cube, like all the way to the opposite side.  Do that a couple times at all different angles, then cut close to the surface and tuck the end back in so it's inside.  The stuffing will hold the yarn pretty well, as long as no one yanks on the accents too hard.

Hope that works and it looks really good so far! Smiley
