Companion Cube Tutorial by jefita Companion Cube Tutorial by jefita
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.

Yeah, the pieces do add up. I was a little overwhelmed at first too. It does take a little bit of time and practice to get it to come together.

Well fortunately most of the supplies are pretty cheap. Especially the felt.

I had no idea it was that cheap.

Well the craft felt is. It's like 20 cents a sheet. The wool kind is a lot more expensive.

Glad I could be helpful :) I'm in the process of making a more general beginners guide for plushie making.

That would be wonderful, actually - there are some out there, but the more, the merrier, and it's amazing how much you can learn just of techniques and whatnot :D

Yeah, I figured it couldn't hurt. And it gives me a good project.

Thank you for the +watch, btw. Your work is pretty awesome.

i'm a bit confused about how the corners work though? you put them on all sides, right? how do they connect? \:
