Here is a replacement top for this jewelry box. I may need to rethink how it works as it may not be stiff enough. I also screwed up in the the fusible backing was 2 sided and I got fuse on my small ironing table topper. Any ideas how to get it off? I was hoping packing tape would hold it together, however that is not working. I do not know if there is enough fuse left to stick to cotton, however that is all I can think of.

Lovely design! The thread colors you used sure give it depth and interest! There is a product that you can get at Joann's that permanently stiffens fabric. But first, you'd have to get rid of the wrinkles like the hints below.

I have some stiffy, not sure I want to use it as it is adhered to fusible fleece.

By baking paper, do you mean parchment paper? I can't get the glue off my iron at all.

cfidl by cfidl 11d ago

I use steel wool on my iron, even one with soap in it. like brillo or SOS. I think I have some freezer paper and will try that first. Thanks

baking paper is also called Silicon paper hugs

If you do wish to make it more stiff (I think that is what I would do) you could dissolve some soluble stabiliser cut-offs in warm water, run through strainer to eliminate lumps, soak embroidery until it has absorbed the "starch". Iron on wrong side while still damp, on towel or padded board, using baking paper or applique mat or similar, under iron, concentrating on ironing close to edges of embroidery. (Using perhaps a small hand-full of cut-offs in a half-filled small/medium bowl of warm water.)
The stitch-out is very pretty and perfect for your box. I hope you find an answer...

I use liquid goo (That is what I call it a lot, I am not sure since I have it adhered to the fusible felt( I think that is what I used) if that would work. I will probably put a piece of matt board on the back side and use gorilla hot glue. Thank you!

The design is great so is the stitching, looks very pretty as it is.
