I am using this pattern from Lion Bran yarn to work from for the blocks. I alter most patterns I use slightly. These blocks are 4" vs the 4 1/2" they recommend. Mainly because 4" foam is MUCH cheaper than 5" and I couldn't find any 4 1/2". $60 a yard for 4" foam! CRAZY EXPENSIVE! Good thing I had my 50% one regular priced item coupon and only bought 11"!
I have one cube done so far and I am loving it!
Here are the squares piled up for each block. I used light purple, dark purple, light pink, dark pink, white and yellow green.
These six squares will wrap around the blocks I cut out from foam. I didn't worry too much about the look of the blocks since they will be covered by yarn.
And finally here is the first block completed!
These are the most adorable things I may have ever made and my new favorite project. They are super easy as well. Look out world. I may be selling some blocks on etsy.
