flashback from the 80'xs

Recommended Posts

I had been thinking about making a Rubik's cube pillow for a few weeks, then I came across this pattern from Annie's pattern club. It's an ok pattern, but I think the next time I will go back to my original idea. They have you adding a black crocheted chain after you make all the little pieces. I think it would be better to crochet the black in as you go.

I wish it were a little more square though.

that's so awsome! I never would have thought that up!

 

(well maybe I would have, if I was Really Bored :devil)

 

by the way it looks fine it would have been difficult to make it really square

Thats pretty cool. Just a thought on how to make it square... I don't know what you stuffed it with .. but you may want to try to cut out foam. I don't know if it would work any better... but hey, worth a shot.

 

 

I thought about stuffing the next with a foam cube (this one has fiberfil), but I wanted it to be squishy. I think when I make the next one and use panels, it might square it up a little...hopefully:think

Three sides was the most I could ever do also. I loved playing all those kinds of games. I had the snake, pyramid, orb, chain, clock and a few more that I can't seem to think of right now. I've started collecting them again. They are not always easy to find. I bought my kids the cube and they gave up real fast. I guess if it isn't a video game, they don't want to even put much effort into it....:think Thanks for looking everyone! :manyheart

That is awesome! I had a rubik's cube when I was 14...gave it up after only being able to get two sides :blush My grandfather took it over and solved it :lol Of course, that was eons ago in the earlyish '80's.

 

What if you tried the foam with a layer of batting over it, similar to what they do with upholstery? That might give the 'squish' you wanted...

That is so neat! My brother would love one of those and so would my son. Thanks for sharing the pictures and giving me an idea for a x-mas gift.

Thanks...that's a good idea.

 

I used to take mine apart with a knife and put all the pieces back together properly!! I know some people who took the stickers off also ;)
