Hello everyone! This is the first time I have entered a challenge after looking at various challenges in the past I finally thought I could do something with the shape challenge!

A while back I bought a white plastic heart-shaped box from a secondhand shop (it looks like it was part of a child's toy), I wanted to make it into a keepsake box, so I decided to craft a lid using plastic canvas and cover the rest of the box with felt.

First I traced the box onto plastic canvas, traced a smaller heart into the middle of the canvas and using various yarns filled in the hearts on the lid using brick stitch. I then cut pieces of felt for the sides and base of the heart-shaped box and sewed them together using blanket stitch, covered the box and used some pink foam for the inside base of the box. I sewed lace around the edge of the lid to hide the rough edges of the plastic canvas and glued felt onto the back of the lid to hide the underside of the stitching, then used ribbon and buttons to create the hinge and closures of the box.
The photo below shows some of the process and various views of the box.
