My first no sew cube!


Well, I finally finished off my first no-sew cube. It's two Lizzie Kate patterns (with similar, but not identical) colors in them, and I did it back to back. I'm pretty happy with how it turned out. I used some organdy ribbon for the bow, which I thought was pretty, and I used four pearl headed buttons as "feet". It's not perfectly centered, and could probably have been a slightly shorter cube, but.....hey, if I wanted PERFECT I could have bought her a gift, right? I was taking the picture out on my balcony (hence my hand! I was afraid it might fall, fortunately only one floor if it had, but into bushes....).

I'm going to see Stacey (my niece) for lunch today, so I'll give it to her today.

Thanks for checking it out!
