Thanks so much! It looks awesome- I might just have to make one for my friend (and maybe another for myself... :D) If you do another/something else in felt, it's worth buying some iron on interfacing - it sticks on the back and stops it from stretching too much or tearing as you work :)

Thanks again!

Um...I just kind of eyeballed it and made it up as I went along, with my limitations being the amount of felt that I bought (I didn't get that much). I originally wanted to make a solid companion cube but cubes of wood were hard to come where I live (the ones I could find were pretty expensive). I actually kind of revisited the companion cube level in Portal in order to pick up the cube and move it around, to find out how all the hearts are oriented. In retrospect, I wouldn't use felt again because it's not a very durable material, since it pills and, well...tears if you pull too hard.

So, if it helps, here is my thinking process...
For each face of the cube, I started out with pink square the size I wanted the face to be. I took a dark grey square cut about the same size as the pink square (maybe a little smaller, it doesn't really matter), and cut it into four congruent squares. I stitched the four little squares onto the pink one, O-tetrimino (square tetris block) style, leaving a tiny bit of a gap so the pink shows through.

then I added the little grey circles, with pink hearts inside

then i stitched the cube together, inside out of course so I could flip it and stuff if and close the opening.

3 little grey corner pieces make a corner the shape should be pretty obvious (little square with a chunk of a circle cut out of it)

I put stuffing under the corner too when I stitched it on, to make it sharper/bigger and have it stand out a little more from the original shape of the inner cube. I feel like it turned out pretty well, there seems to be some volume in there.

and finally the little grey thingy between the corner pieces is just a little rectangle sewed onto a longer rectangle sewed onto the middles of the edges of the cube.

The idea behind it is pretty simple but it takes a bit of time. I watched shows while I sewed, ehehe.

:O did you create a pattern yourself or use an existing one?! I'd love it if you could send me a link to the pattern if it's on the interwebs somewhere :D
