Shaker Box

I worked on my Shaker box finish yesterday although I have not glued it into the recess on the box as I was not too happy with how it fits. I used the template that came with the box and put some batting between the fabric and the template and then laced it but when I placed it into the recess it seems to be just a teeny bit too small so I think I will undo it and place another layer of batting that overlaps the edges of the template to give a more tighter fit.  Or does anyone have any other ideas?? The pattern is by Merry Cox called Where Thy Heart Belongs.   

I also part stitched another scissor fob identical (apart from initials) to the one I stitched for the HOE fob exchange as I was really pleased with the one I had made for my partner and wanted to keep it for myself! I will post photos once my partner has received it which hopefully should be either the end of this week or the beginning of next week.  

Thanks for visiting
Take care
