I then padded the comic book board strip with batting (hindsight maybe padding the bottom was not a good idea - it is a tad wobbly, so I may add feet of some sort) and then covered it all with the same fabric used on the back.
Then to hide some of the edges on the front I glued cording around the front and added a bow at top. I am not 100% sure I like the bow, but have until August 8 to make up my mind before I take it to the Jefferson County Fair.
That about covers it for now!!!!
