Minecraft Craft - Sew a Mineral Block1/29/2013 11:05:00 AM
Why a Minecraft Block?
On a recent trip to one of my area quilt shops, I gave my seven year old son the usual pre-shopping talk about him not touching anything and me promising to be quick. Of course, neither happened.
Sew.... I made his block. First though, I had to Google Lapis Lazuli to make sure I knew what it was. Luckily it was very easy to find, Lapis Lazuli on minecraftwiki.net.
The boy was thrilled and screamed with delight over this cube. I asked him what he was planning on doing with it, and he just said "Play with it!!" It's been on his bed ever since. He tried to use it as a pillow but it didn't work too good, but all of the doggies and bears have had a turn. Jace says it's just a big party on his bed and no one gets left out, so they are all taking a turn. (A block party?) It's Chickie the Penguin's turn tonight. So why did I buy him Christmas presents anyway? He likes a cube!
Make a 3-D Block:
I didn't refer to a tutorial for this, as I already knew how to sew a cube, but if you'd like to learn how to make a cube, or baby blocks and do great 3-D corners, HERE, is a great tutorial for you.
On another note, even though it's -28 outside with a -43 windchill, it's Spring time in my house. I picked up some crocus, and hyacinth's at my Safeway and they are blooming. They make me smile when I see them. Bring on Spring!
