Making a Dice Cushion is quite easy! Would you like to make one! Yes! Lets Makes one!
All you need is about 1 yard of 60 inch width fabric or about 1 1/4 yard if you have lesser width fabric
For the Dots or cirlces on the dice, you can make do with leftover fabric, check your Fabric Scrap Stash!
For filling about 1/4 kg of polyfill and rest of filling will be made of cut up fabric scraps!
From Base fabric (I have used Velour)
Cut 6 Squares of 15 * 15 inches dimension (includes 1/2 inch seam allowance on all sides)
In Contrast color fabric (I have used Organza with cotton underlining)
Cut 1 Circle of 7 cm diameter (without seam allowance / fold allowance for edges)
Cut 21 circles of 3 cm diameter (without seam allowance / fold allowance for edges)
I had cut 21 circles of 3 cm diameter from the underlining material as well, if you use a thick material to cut your circles, you can get away with just having to 21 circles! Cutting circles are such a pain, i need to get myself a rotary cutter soooon !!!
Step 2 - Pin up the required number of cirlce on each square
Step 3 : Stitch the Circles onto the squares to put them in place
Step 4: Place the Big Circle at center on square base (mine ended up being a bit off center, so learn from my mistake!)and pin and applique. This square will form the top layer of the cube and will stay on top , until ofcourse the dice is tossed!
SORRY forgot to take a picture of the below 3 steps!
Step 5: Join the WS of 4 squares together and then join the open seam of first square to open seam of Last square to form an open cube !
Step 6: Put the square with Big Circle on top of the Open cube and stitch the seams of it to the squares below it (again Wrong Sides together)
Step 7: Place the square with 6 small circles to cover the open end of cube (again Wrong Sides together) and sew the seam leaving about 10 inch opening at center. It is through this opening we will be filling up the dice!
Step 8: Cut the fabric scraps into random sizes, just snip them up, they need be very small or too big, just about anything between palm size or double of palm size is just fine!
For filling up the dice, no snaps, don't think they are required, should make do with instructions, in case you still need clarification, please feel free to ask!
Step 9: First fill the dice with layer of polyfill at all sides. Then insert your hand into it and create a hollow hole at center of it
Step 10: Keep inserting fabric stash and spread it evenly as much as possible!
Step 11: Ask your little one to sit on it and see if there is enough fabric stash to support the dice when it is pressed! Once you are satisfied that the little one is able to sit comfortable and will not fall even if they run into it and sit! We are almost done
Step 12: Fill up the bottom and side with more polyfill layer just to give the right feel to the touchable sides! The fabric in the middle will not be known to anyone who is going to feel or sit on it!
Step 13: Lets us pin up the seams of opening
Step 13: Now let us close the opening with a ladder stitch. See link at bottom of this post, for a video tute of Ladders Stitch!
Voila! Here it is our Dice Floor Cushion!
