Happy Monday all and welcome to your Element 3 Health Sewing Club!
Today I am here to teach you step by step how to sew a "Cute Cube". This is a fun and functional project that is perfect for holding small collections.
Finished the project measures approximately 4" x 4".
To craft as shown, in the video tutorial above, you will need:
(10) 5" x 5" squares of cotton fabric
(5) 5" x 5" squares of quilt batting
(2) 1" x 5" strips of non fray material such as leather, suede, vinyl, cork or felt
I like to use a 3/8" seam allowance; however, you can use what you are comfortable with as long as you are consistent. This project is perfect for scraps, fat quarters and half yard cuts of material.
I am available, via the comments, to answer any questions you may have regarding this project or the club schedule.
As you watch the tutorial, give some thought as to how you might improve the design as every club member is invited to vote in the project variation poll which will be posted on Wednesday. Maybe we want to add a flap closure, basket style handle, pockets, interior divider, enlarge the size...the possibilities are endless.
Then on Thursday I will join you live via Zoom to show you how to integrate the design variation and on Friday you will have an opportunity to present your Cute Cube(s) to the community in our weekly Sew and Tell event, also hosted via Zoom.
Please let me know if you have any questions, suggestions, need more info or just want to introduce yourself. I can be reached directly via email at firstname.lastname@example.org
