The hope chest. The cover will go over the top down the 2 sides and back to the floor.
Cutting out the pieces.
Here I have sewn on the four pieces and sewn batting to what will be the top.
I have now sewn the sides to the back piece. Now it is starting to take shape!
The underlayer of the chest cover. I laied it on a box to see what it would look like. Where the front corners of the top piece meets the side pieces is a curve. This is suppose to mimic the curve of the chest, had I gotten my measurements correct. In attempt #2, you will hopefully be able to see the curved portion better.
Here We Go Again
