Christmas 2016: A Sensory Cube

Well, this is the last gift I'm posting about (I hope *laugh*) in my line up of gifts I've made this year.  This one is another repeat from last year, but with a few changes.

I made a sensory cube for my son last year (just a stuffed cube with different textures on each side) and he LOVED it and has since worn it out, plain and simple.  The cube is now pretty much flat he's used it so much.  So, I definitely wanted to make him another one this year.

This time around I just used fabrics I had around and then to make it crinkle I washed and then crumpled up an empty Doritos bag and stuck it in the middle of the cube when I stuffed it. 

I used part of the leopard print material that I made the pillow for my half-sister out of as my son really loved the material when I was working with it (it's got an interesting texture I guess *laugh*), so I was even able to use a remnant of fabric left over from making that for this project.

Total Time to Make Gift:  About an hour and a half.  I had to rip out the pieces about three times because I kept stacking them together wrong to sew them together (me and geometry are life long adversaries).

Total Cost to Make Gift:  Nothing as I had all the materials around here to make it.


  1. I tried so hard to make soft blocks from loom knitting, just can't seem to. If I could,figure out hand sewing, I might try your way!

  2. Just wanted to wish you a Merry Christmas Erika. Your children will love your gifts.
