Next I took the top of the hatbox (lid) and turned in inside out (I didn't want to hide the original design on the top so I covered the underside of the box with the fabric instead). Then I took the fabric and cut it to fit over the top of the box lid, and ironed fusible webbing to the underside of the fabric. I then ironed the fabric with webbing right onto the lid top. I secured the corners with fabric strips and hot glue. Last, I hot glued the fringe to the sides of the lid.
