Here’s a super easy felt storage cube tutorial for you to make, a clever and simple DIY idea for this spring. (And if you love flowers, you’ll love to use this easy felt flower tutorial to make it even more spring-like!) All you need is a square piece of thick felt, and you’re good to go. You’ll love this little beginner sewing project!
It’s a quick DIY—no hemming, no measuring. It’s basically a super quick beginner sewing project for when you need a quick present but are running out of time. Or for when you don’t feel like working with a seam allowance. Or pressing or making boxed corners. You’ll see what I mean. This:
It also makes a great present. What could be better than that?
- felt template (get it here: PDF-Template-by-AppleGreen-Cottage)
- 12″ x 12″ (31 cm x 31 cm) of thick felt. It needs to be at least 2 milimeters thick to give the box enough stability.
- matching thread
- sewing machine, scissors,
- optional: embroidery floss, thin felt for decoration

I love felt flowers! Easy and quick. You can make a few within minutes, following one of my tutorials at AppleGreen Cottage.
These lovely felt cubes have tons of uses: a felt box like this one makes great key storage if you keep it in the hall,somewhere close to the front door. It also protects the surface of the hallway table—no more scratches from tossing your keys!
These are also perfect holders for your craft supplies. Fill one with satin ribbons and tiny colorful buttons, and then put them on display. Adorable! Felt cubes like this one are an inexpensive way to get your shelves, desk or kitchen counter organized and beautiful.
