Finished No Sew Cube!!

Well, here are some finished pictures of my no sew cube for Naomi - she dances today, so nothing like assembling it right at the last minute! I had a hard time finding the right size piece of styrofoam (the piece is probably a little big for a no sew cube) so I ended up with an 8 x 8 x 8 inch cube. Not my first choice, but it worked. I didn't quite finish it the way I would normally (with a band of fabric around the sides top and bottom) instead I used one solid piece of fabric and that's why the back isn't perfect. The bottom is a little rocky too, but not horrible. And it's for a five year old, so perfection is probably not necessary!!

It's not real clear on the pictures - the fabric has ballet slippes in pink and peach intertwined with ribbons, and the bows on top are one cream colored and one pink - sheer ribbon with sparkles in it. I think it's very girly and cute for our little ballerina! (Well - my friend's granddaughter ballerina!)

I bet she loves it, very girly and cute. I need to look up how to make these cubes, my girls would love some girly things like this round their new bedroom

That is adorable and I bet she was thrilled with it. For the rocky bottom (If it happens again) you can always use Pearl Head pin on the bottom for feet.

I remember when you first completed this piece. It's nice to see what you did with it. I love the fluff on the tutu. Maybe I will be able to learn how to do that someday.

She is adorable!! A perfect gift! I had trouble with the styrofoam also. I ended up buying a big piece and cutting to the size I wanted.
