Square By Design® Cube Cover
SUPPLIES & TOOLS:
- Square By Designs® Squares (5)
- Cube to cover, not to exceed 23" on all sides
- Basic sewing supplies
- Sewing machine
- Chalk for marking
Note: To prevent fraying, use a finishing or zig zag stitch along each Square edge. Seam allowances are 1/2". If ironing is needed, use medium set dry iron.
1. Measure height and width of cube. Add 1/2" to measurement for each side to allow for seam allowance. Example, if cube measures 20"x20", the Square will be cut to measure 21"x21".
2. With right side facing up, use the fabric marker or chalk to draw a square centering motif. Cut along drawn line. Repeat for remaining four Squares.
3. Place the four Squares selected for the sides of the cube wrong side up. Using fabric marker, place a dot 1/2" from each top corner. Pin the Squares together and sew stopping and backstitching at each marked dot. By sewing each of the cube side Squares together, a tube will be created.
4. Place Square for cube top wrong side up and place a dot 1/2" from each corner. With right sides together, align dots on top Square with dots on tube and pin together. Sew top to the side Squares, stopping and back stitching at each marked dot.
5. Fold bottom edge to wrong side 1/2", pin and machine stitch in place.
