Thank you everyone!!

I made him a little bunny friend with scraps of pink leopard fleece, the same black and white fleeces, and a leftover bolt of yellow fuzzy fleece.

These cubes are so much fun!

The three amigos Smiley

2  rawr! Monster Cube in Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects by CostumeDesignerMary on: July 19, 2010 04:30:58 AM

Half inspired by the monster bag (I can't find the link right now) and half by frecklesinoureyes' jellyfish stuffies tutorial.
He's made of lime green furry fleece, as well as scraps of white polarfleece and black powerstretch fleece. No zipper on this one, I just handstitched his bottom closed after turning him right side out.

I also added spikes and a cute little spikey tail Smiley

They seem happy together Smiley

I haven't decided yet if he will be a gift. For now, he's going to hang out with me!

thanks!! post pictures if you make some, i'd love to see!

*waves* hi! I'm new around here, but I came across your tutorial video and these are absolutely adorable!! I have a good friend who loves jellyfish, and I decided to make her one of these guys.

His name is Bob. Bob is awesome.

I changed some things from the tutorial though...
He's made from scrap fabric I had left over- a soft ivory flat polarfleece. I didn't use anti-pill fleece because I like the smooth finish he has. He's not going to be roughed-up where he's going so I'm not worried about it.

I made him with an 8" cube and 3"x12" strips. For the tentacles, I cut the strips into 8ths, rather than 4ths and stretched the fleece to make it curly and more tentacle-y (totally a word).

I hand-sewed the eyes and mouth on before assembling him, rather than using glue. The eyes and mouth are made from scraps of white anti pill polarfeece and black polartec powerstretch fleece- both interfaced with heavyweight fusible.

I wanted him to have identical seams all around his top, so instead of topstitching, I added a zipper in his back. Seizing an opportunity for awesomeness, I decided to make it a zipper pouch that fits inside him. I used a scrap piece of cotton canvas for the pouch lining.

I left the pouch bottom unstitched and turned him inside out that way. Stuffed him, and then pressed/ topstitched the pouch lining.

I also added a small loop on his top so she can hang him from her dorm ceiling Smiley

Thank you so much for the tutorial!! I know she's going to LOVE him and I'm so excited to give him to her!
