In keeping with the theme of art this week, we have a small inspiration post for you this weekend.
Though this could be considered a toy, it also functions as a small piece of “soft sculpture.” Sam Strasser, one of our CNC operators at the factory created a small cube inspired by the video game “Portal” by Valve Corporation.
To make this cube, weave 6 squares on the zoom loom with a grey wool yarn. Felt the squares and sew them into a cube shape. Before sewing the final square into the cube, take a small cube of wood and wrap it with batting to create a heavy, yet padded form for your woven cube to be sewn around. Use craft felt and embroidery thread to create the motifs and sew them onto each side of the cube. A little fabric glue may help to keep the felt cutouts in place.
