    Cute. I've been eyeing my fleece stash thinking about making a few cuddle cups but have not got around to it yet. I love the cube one. Do you have a tutorial or am I going to have to figure that out myself.

    What do you use to stuff the cube bed? I made one, but the thickest batting I could find still isn't quite doing the job, and yours looks pretty sturdy. Great looking beds!

    270g (9.5oz) i find using polycotton or cotton outside helps keep it rigid, I made one in just fleece and it was great but floppy

    Oh, so you use cotton on the outside? Is that white one fleece? If so, that is basically how mine came out too, so maybe the trick is to avoid fleece as the outer lining.

    Yes the white one is fleece inner and fleece outer, its OK and reversible but the red one does look a lot more, well,shop bought.
