Sewing Tutorial: Decision Cube 2

Sewing Tutorial: Make a decision cube for your classroom to help students select activities or projects that correspond to certain subjects or standardsI love custom projects and I enjoy it when people come up with creative twists on my designs. That's why I was very excited when I was contacted by a professor from Utterly Engaging about my Decision Cube Pillows.

Giving credit where credit is due, my husband actually came up with the original concept. It was basically an over-sized die with different "yes" or "no" options printed on each side.

To improve on the original tutorial, and make it a handy teaching tool, I'm adding plastic pockets so the options on each side can be customized and changed. This decision cube could be used by teachers in the classroom to help kids select activities or projects that correspond to a certain subject or standard being taught.

Materials



Directions


The finished dimensions of this decision cube are 12 x 12 x 12 inches with pockets that hold 5 x 7 inch cards, although you could easily adjust the size to suit your needs.

Cut six sheet protectors into 5 3/4 x 7 1/2 inch rectangles.
I cut from the bottom corner of the protectors so that I would be able to use a double thickness of plastic.

Cut six 13 x 13 squares of fabric.
Center the plastic protectors onto your fabric squares. In case you don't want to do the math, they should be 2 3/4 inches from each side and 3 5/8 inches from the top and bottom.

Use masking tape to temporarily secure the plastic to the fabric since pins would leave holes in the plastic.
Use a medium zig zag stitch to secure the plastic pockets to the fabric by sewing across the two long sides of the pocket and one of the short sides.
Using 1/2 inch seam allowances, stitch the six sides, wrong sides together, as shown so that the pockets alternate directions on each side of the cube.

Finish stitching the cube, wrong sides together, making sure to leave an opening along the final stitched edge.

Turn the pillow right side out, stuff it, and hand or machine stitch the opening.

Once your cube is complete, you can create 5 x 7 inch cards featuring different options and slide them into the pockets. There are endless possibilities for ways teachers can use this decision cube to keep students engaged in the classroom.
