Companion Cube Tutorial

UPDATE!!!! I redid this tutorial with photos of all the steps. You can find the new version on my blog: Part I & Part II. Enjoy!


I almost forgot to upload this. A few people requested this a while back and I obliged. This is my first attempt at a tutorial so it's not super fantastic. It's pretty text heavy, illustration light, but hopefully it's still instructional. Let me know if you have any questions or problems.

I made a pdf with just the pattern pieces and you can find it here:

And just for reference, this is what my cube looked like when finished:


Remember that the companion cube belongs to Valve, so you can't use this pattern for commercial purposes. It is just for your own enjoyment!

I'm going to do this after I've made my dragon... Being my first plush, it'll be a while before I'm finished.
