There’s this game called Portal created by this company called Steam. Anyways, the training portion of the game includes a “Weighted Companion Cube” to use for weighing down large buttons which open other portals or doors.
I have not played it but I was introduced to the world of gamers who make their own version of their beloved cube for fun. I had to try it and this is what I came up with!
I used Felt for this project and cotton thread but any sturdy/stiff material will do as long as your machine can handle sewing at least three layers of it.
The filling can be stiff foam to use as a foot rest or bean bag fill if made with cotton and filled with plastic beans.
