Picture of How to make a Weighted Companion Cube!

Hey!

This is my simple but very very very very very time consuming Weighted Companion cube tutorial!

I designed and made it myself so it took around 50 -60 hours!

It wasn't very difficult, however if it is your first time doing cross stitching then I'd recommend this tutorial video here!

It helped me so much to get started :)

Step 1: Print the pattern :)

It's pretty much just the pieces I traced. So it should be the same size, or you can shrink it to make a mini cube! The 6 large squares are pretty easy to work out so I left it out. Also the pink strips do not have a template as they are sewn directly onto the large squares. It's easy to work out from the pictures :) Or check out my YouTube video on this tutorial!

Check that out HERE :)

Step 2: Cutting and cutting, and more cutting. D:

So pretty much you'll need a self healing mat, scissors and a hobby knife.

Cut out 6x hearts, square bases and circles.

Cut out 24x corner pieces and mid section pieces.

This took me a while, perhaps because of trial and error with the sizes of everything. With the template it should take around 2-3 hours. Hopefully less... I never really took track of the times :)

Step 3: Sewing the pink!~

Firstly sew the pink hearts!

Takes around 20 -25 minutes to sew each pieces. There are 6 in total

Step 4: Sewing the pink~ Part 2!

The only other thing you will need to use the pink cotton for is the little rectangles bits! (see pictures)

Do this however you want. I found it easier to use a glue tac and attach the other pieces onto the big square and then sew the pinks trips around the other shapes. Then I got frustrated with the slowness of that process and decided to use a perm maker and draw where all the other shapes would go so that I could easily see where I needed to sew. I'd recommend using the marker as it allows you to hold the square any way you want.

Step 5: Attaching the hearts!

Pretty easy. Just go around the edges with pink to secure the heart.
