To make, sew six ‘side’ pieces around foam block. Sew three ‘corner’ pieces together using photo as a guide, sew these onto each corner of the cube and add stuffing to give a firm 3-D texture. Using bright pink DK, make long braids and wrap around cube, creating lines. Pin these roughly in place before sewing ‘edge’ and ‘circles’ onto cube, these will secure them in place. Alternatively, you can thread the braids underneath the edge and circle pieces if you’ve sewn them on first. Lastly, sew on hearts and then love.
Just remember, the cake is a lie, and even though this cube wont stab you, it isn’t fire proof!
