I covered the side pieces with lining fabric last night while American Idol was on.  It’s a good show for that–I don’t have to see everything that’s happening onscreen while I’m stitching.  And there are a couple of things I only wish I hadn’t seen.  It was easy to lace the fabric over the pieces of Sintra, not slippery at all.


This morning, I cut a piece for the box bottom and laced fabric over that as well.  I’ve pinned the pieces together so you can see how the inside of the box will look when they’re sewn (tonight’s TV project).  The red blobs you see on the corners are the heads of my pins.


Soon, all that lacing will be covered with the Poppy fabric and the lid preparation will begin.
