Preamble.... I’m not a native English speaker, so forgive the mistakes. Or write to me to correct them :). Be kind.
I love Lego, I love to crochet.
I thank Lizzyastro who make the instructable for the doorstop and gave me the idea of doing this box and the permission of doing this instructable.
Given that I’ve done the box and only after I’ve wrote this instructable, I’ve used the photos taken from another box (rainbow box), but it’s the same of the Lego box, the only difference is colours and the lid.
This is my first Instructable.

Step 1: How to prepare the stuffing

Decide the measure of the box. Cut the carpet in pieces slightly littler (more or less 0,5 cm littler) than the measure you chose. I’ve done the red one and the rainbow one 11x11x7 cm.

Cut the carpet in squares and rettangles of these measure:
1 square 10,5 x 10,5 cm
1 square 11,5 x 11,5 cm
4 rectangles 10,5 x 6,5 cm

Use a set square to help you cut it.

Note: You can use plastic, if you can cut it, but I prefer something softer. If you don’t plane to use the box in bathroom or kitchen, or where it risks to be wetted, you can use cardboard.
I hadn't seen this before! They're so cute. :D

I actually found this through pinterest!

Hello, I can't knit, sorry. But my ideas was inspired by lizzyastro's http://www.instructables.com/id/How-to-knit-a-giant-lego-brick-doorstop/ , maybe you can use that pattern to do the box.
I can't crochet, but I would make this in a heartbeat if I could!!
