How to Line a Box with Fabric
Learn how to make a decorative and functional lining for a box or drawer.

On furniture, the liner may protect clothing from snagging on rough places in the wood. In a jewel box, the liner protects and enhances, possibly serving as a way to customize the box as a gift for a special person.
