A quick little Saturday Case Project

Well I have some older ibby cases that the guitars just move around too much in for my comfort. So I actually used some of the "maybe Ill use this one day" items I had in the attic.

I took an old sofa cushion pad, cut it to fit the case, traced the guitar shape and cut that out. Ran to the fabric store and got some creamy velvety goodnes to wrap it in and some spray adhesive. Couple hours later the guitar is snug as a bug in a rug!

My fabric skills need some improvement, but it will do the job.
