|Old Tuck Chest recovered in Railway Tracks Fabric|
|A mess of railway track pieces|
I continue to do battle with Estelle's endless pile of toys - and this week, I declared war on the railway track pieces which were just shoved into the box they came in!
|Old tuck chest destined for skip|
I decided to recover an old tuck chest which had been destined for the skip using my new railway track design fabric. I thought the silver edging would be a great contrast for my railway track design and would fit in with the theme perfectly.
|Stiffen fabric and cut|
|Trace shape of panel|
I then taped each of the sections over the appropriate part of the chest. I used a sharp pencil to trace out the lines of the silver edging. By pressing hard, I was able to trace the shape fairly accurately. In some sections (like the handle and lock) I had to slit the fabric - a bit like when you're wallpapering and you need to slit an area for the light switch.

I used a piece of plastic to wedge the fabric under the silver edging.
