This is for a sensory taggy cube, which is a little more complex than the taggy blanket tutorial I showed a few months ago (which you can check out here). The taggy cube can be as big or as little as you like but keep in mind this one I made actually required a good lot of cotton batting to get it filled out nicely.
Measure out 6 identical square pieces of fabric. You can choose any size you like, somewhere between 4-6 inches is a good size. Then iron the squares so they are nice and flat.
Start with two pieces of fabric, placing them face to face with the printed side of the material facing INWARDS. Sew along one side. Sew 4 squares together in a length, always placing the colorful side of the material together.
The four squares combined should look like this – colourful print facing inwards.
The add the base by pinning it to the four sides, if you’ve measured your squares out perfectly these should match up exactly.
Add your ribbons between your pins once you have the base added then pin them in place for sewing. Sew up one square all the way around and the final square in your cube leave approximately 2 inches open. Then through this opening turn your fabric inside out.
Stuff your cotton batting in through the opening, fluffing it up before you add it to create a nice soft square. Add your bells during this stage and move them into the middle of the cube between the batting.
Hand sew the opening closed and there you have a lovely sensory cube suitable for your baby or as a gift.

This is fab! I really wish I could sew and use a sewing machine. I must make the time to learn some day. x
What a fantastic idea this is. I love it and I really want to try and make my own. I have a sewing machine which never gets used so it would be nice to make something like this for bubs. xx
So pretty and fairly easy to make too. I love that you can choose your own fabrics and colours when you make for yourself.
You have such brilliant tutorials, Eimear. I’m hopeless with a needle and thread (or a sewing machine!) I really need to learn one of these days 🙂
Thanks Niamh! It’s a nice skill to have and one that is always useful!
That’s so cute! One of these days I will learn to sew, it’s so great to be able to make things for yourself I think.
What a wonderful idea to make your own! I’ve never thought of that before. My kiddies all love their taggie blankets & sure this would have bit a hit when they were younger! x
Looks so cool! Are you going to sell these? Very professional. Wish I had talents like this 🙂
In an ideal world thats how I’d make my millions, stay at home with my babies and sell things I create, someday perhaps!!
Great idea and thanks for sharing the tutorial. I’m sure L would have loved this when he was a baby 🙂
