What you need
Colored felt for shapes
Step 1: Start by cutting out 6 squares 8 inch (20 cm) in size.
Step 2: Using a blanket stitch join all the edges together to form a flat shaped cube leaving the top square off. This will allow you to sew on the shapes and to fill it.
Step 3: We used hand shaped pieces that were sewn onto the side, but you can find adhesive felt shapes in your craft store which are much faster and add more detail.
Step 4: Soft filling works best for toys, but if you intend to use it as a needle holder try using something a little firmer like toy foam or a foam cube.
Step 5: Sew the top on using the blanket stitch.
Optional: Make smaller ones for cat toys or larger ones for kids toys. Drop a bell in for a rattle effect.
