The Finished Article

Refurbishing, cont'd.
 Once the lining fabric was cut to size, it was held in place with upholstery tacks, in the smallest size I could find. For the top box, and the drawer, I hand sewed the fabric into shape, and then the shapes were carefully fitted into place. They, too, were then tacked into place.
 The final stage was to glue and sew the gimp braid into place around all the edges. This is the traditional finish.
A good polish, and the sewing box is ready for use....to hold my knitting!
