while it could stand to be bigger, it's an excellent companion jewelry tree i have (also from ikea).
what the box did need was some cushion... a nicely patterned cushion. so while there are several different always i could have approached these lightly padded "cushions", i went with a somewhat unconventional route.
as i am still excited about my recent appliqued onesies, and am currently in possession of a large quantity of felt (more on this later), i decided to once again fuse cotton fabric and felt using double stick fusible web. the webbing just prevents the edges of the patterned fabric from getting frayed, and also adds a slight rigidity.
want one too?
all you'll need (besides the box) is:
1 piece of patterned fabric of your choice 5 1/2" x 10 3/4" (i used heather bailey's pop sway fabric)
1 piece of felt of your choice 5 1/2" x 10 3/4"
1 piece of double stick fusible web adhesive sheets ( i use steam a seam 2)
follow the instructions on the package on how to adhere the pieces together (use the base of the box lid to trace the shape of the cushion), and stitch around the edges.
