Super Easy Spring Felt Storage Cube

It was something like a year ago when I presented this super easy storage cube on Seams And Scissors, and now it's time you get the free sewing pattern too. It's a super easy, clever and simple DIY idea for you to try out this spring. Search through your felt stash for a square piece of thick felt, but first scroll down for the free template!

Now about this felt cube tutorial and template: it's a quick DIY, no hemming, no measuring, basically it's a super quick beginner sewing project. For when you need a quick present but are running out of time. Or for when you don't feel like working with a seam allowance. Or pressing or making boxed corners. You'll see what I mean. This:

It also makes a great present. What better than that!

You'll Need:

  • your free felt template (Easiest DIY Felt Box Pattern on Craftsy)
  • 12" x 12" (31cm x 31 cm) of thick felt. It needs to be at least 2 milimeter thick to give the box enough stability.
  • matching thread
  • sewing machine, scissors,
  • optional: embroidery floss, thin felt for decoration

Felt Storage Cube Tutorial:

And I'm adding a quick HOW-TO here:

1) Place a piece of thick felt on a flat surface and trace it using the free template. Cut out the felt:

I love felt flowers! Easy and quick. You can make a few within minutes, following one of my tutorials at AppleGreen Cottage.

To sum up, basically it's cutting out a piece of felt using the free template, 4 straight stitches, done. It does not get any easier than that!

They've got tons of uses: a felt box like this one makes a great key storage if you keep it in the hall, somewhere close to the front door. It also protects the surface of the hallway table - no more scratches from tossing your keys!
