The cutest MGS Snake Box ever… probably?

I made a thing in 2014… a cute thing!  A chubby MGS Orange Box. How could I not share it with you?

Chubby Box

Using the design from the left hand boxes commissioned to be made for the BAFTA Game Awards show in 2014; I adapted the design to make the chubby beanie box.

So using the design, I broke the design down to the component pieces to be cut out of felt.  But beforehand, I carried out some paint tests:

I used a series of notches to indicate where joins should be to make the box 3D:

I then checked the detail looked okay in it’s flat form.  That’s 33 individual detail pieces and six sides:

Then the sewing started.  I build up the layers using a very basic small stitch:

Slowly building up the layers and attaching edges:

Until I could see a box forming!

I left a corner open so I could:

…fill the little one full of beans!

Then sealed:
