It good for snuggling and kittens love them!
Okay okay, I know this one isn't difficult or even that creative...but it's plaid! That has to count for something...right? =P

This cube actually works pretty good as a hackey sack.

Good for throwing at people...

Good for Kittens, who love to attack inanimate objects.

    Cut out your 6 squares

    Step 3

    Start sewing your cube together. If you follow the pattern in the picture it should be pretty easy. Not hard, I know.

    Step 4

    Leave one of the sides not sewn up, so you can turn it right side out and stuff that bad boy.

    Step 5

    Now here's where the pattern can vary. You can stuff it with your traditional stuffing, or if you don't feel like buying any you can trash a t-shirt and stuff it with that, much to my preference. Just cut stripes out of the shirt, then make them about
    1/2" x 4-5". Depending on how big you made your cube, you may very well end up using the whole t-shirt...I did. I DO NOT recommend using the lining of the shirt...It's not as soft or cushy. Leaves hard lumps in the cube.

    One she's full, stitch it up!

    Now one thing this cube is good for is throwing at people! Especially if you filled it with the t-shirt strips! Seriously though, I just wail it at my little sister. It doesn't hurt! It's just funny to watch her freak out. =P

    Also...kittens love this toy. Mine goes at it like crazy.

This is so cute!!!

You know, this would be a great decoration/present for Christmas or birthdays. All you have to do is put a pretty ribbon around it and a bow and *presto* a plushie present! I would even stitch some kawaii eyes and a little mouth on it.

Great job! <3
