I was inspired by some blankets and soft toys that I saw a bit ago and decided to try my hand at both...I have a friend who's enormously pregnant, so I had to hurry!  

Cubie (it rattles!)

Blankie

Thanks for all the inspiration!

Rather Vague Tutorial...
For the cube I cut out 6 squares of the same size and 12 lengths of woven ribbon about 6 inches long (they end up sticking out about 2 1/4" when they're seamed into the cube).  Not knowing exactly how to piece it together, I just went at it--essentially sewing each square to another (right sides facing each other), being sure to trap a loop of ribbon in the seam.  Things got a bit more challenging when the last square was added and attached to all sides...just required some dexterous sewing.  

One the cube was all seamed up with ribbons sticking out of all the sides and stuffed to fluffy goodness, I realized that I wasn't happy with the cube...it was more sphere than cube.  I thought that going over my seams from the outside would help add structure...it was a real pain to cram the stuffed cube through my sewing machine!  There has to be an easier way to do it I'm sure!  

Hope this helps?  Let me know if I need to clarify things better.

I should send you my shipping address once I find out I'm pregnant!  LOL!  These are great and look as if they were store bought.

Great job!
