Yesterday I went to Fabricville and got the pink satin fabric, pink satin ribbon, spray adhesive and matte board (from Michael’s) that I would need to construct the outside of the box. I went by the list of things I would need that are on the inside cover of the instructions, but as I completed the outside and came to the details about the inside construction I realized that I needed Skirtex or Easy Felt, something along those lines. So I finished the outside of the box and hopefully today I’ll get back out to Fabricville to pick up the stiffened felt. Here are a few pictures.
This is the first time I have ever constructed a box covered in fabric. Two of the lid edges and two of the main body edges are stitched together using invisible thread. I also used more invisible thread to re-inforce the hinge on the lid and of the front flap. Isn’t is just the cutest? It’s small, only about 7″ wide and 4″ tall. If I go to Fabricville today then I’ll probably have the inside finished in a couple of days, if I don’t go today then it could be a couple of weeks. Either way, pictures will definitely follow of the final product.
