Hi all – I could use some help.
A while ago we had to say goodbye to our old pup, and I made a memory box to hold some of his stuff we kept: food bowl, leash, tags, etc. This is what I ended up making:
The inside is foam that I cut and covered with spray adhesive and fabric I picked up at Joann’s. However, I’ve found that I don’t like how well I covered it, and that I should make more cutouts to better store his things. I would like to redo the lining entirely.
Cutting out the foam is a somewhat straightforward part, but I’m generally clueless about how to apply the lining, make it conform to the openings, and generally minimize the seams and glue lines. What you see in the photo is by far the most flattering angle possible, with fabric double- and triple-layered to make it look somewhat cohesive. And upon closer inspection, it still isn’t.
Are there any tutorials, channels, blogs, etc. that you can recommend which go through the process of making something like this? I’m not fixed on any particular method or material, although I do like how this velvet-like material looks and I have some left over to try again.
