I've got a secret...
If you are a fan of Big Bang Theory, I'm sure you have already noticed the awesome Rubix Cube tissue box that Sheldon and Leonard have in their apartment. Well, I decided that we had to have one for our new 80's Geek Living Room!

As with the Super Mario Coasters, making a pattern would be more difficult and time consuming for me than the project itself. It's pretty simple though so a detailed pattern shouldn't be necessary. Start by cutting five pieces of plastic canvas to 37 line squares. Assuming that all plastic canvas is the same size, your pieces will be just under 5 1/2". On the fifth piece, cut a hole in the middle that is 13 lines in from every side.
Here is the basic pattern for each color block:
This is the order that I used for my colors:
Each block takes about a 5' piece of yarn. You can put the colors into whatever order you want but I recommend going off of an actual Rubix Cube. I just made up colors for one and it wasn't until I had already put it together that I realized some of the blocks weren't technically possible. So I had to rip it all out and start over again because I knew that it would bug me every time I looked at it.
Once you have finished your color blocks, fill in the inside black lines on each panel. Then stitch all of the panels together and all along the bottom edge. I went over all of the sides twice just to make sure that none of the plastic showed through.
Now just slip it over a square tissue box.
