Anyway, here's what I have.
and this is what I want:
Eeek! I've never used a saw, never tufted before and have no idea how to add that pretty pipping around the lid but I'm throwing caution to the wind and giving it a whirl! I'm sure it will look nothing like the above photo and in that case I will delete this post and pretend it never happened ;) And if it comes out beautiful I'll link up to a minimum of 10 link parties, pin my own blog post on Pinterest and stalk Nate Berkus til he puts me on his show ;) Kidding! I'll probably just do a happy dance and ask my husband way too many times to tell me how cute it came out! But I'm guessing we will be going the "delete this post" route.
Update to come: Hopefully sooner than later.
