Pic 1 - This project needed far fewer tools than any of the other totes I have made. Unfortunatetly, I didn't get a pic of the plastic tote before I started working on it. I bought it at Walmart for $4 and change. It's in the Sports/Fishing area. Clear plastic case with blue dividers, I really like these ones, they are decently deep for the wells and the dividers are a little tough to put in. I like this because there is a much less chance of them coming off while messing with it or taking the horses out. I didn't use any glue on this project, I thought about it for a while but thought that if I wanted to change it around or do something different with the tote then I wouldn't have glue stuck all over. Otherwise I only used a sharpie, ruler and a good pair of scissors. I found some awesome thin foam at Walmart. I think its called Flex foam? I lost the tag for it. It has a thin layer of foam that has cloth sewed to each side. It has a decent amount of give to it, but still stands up on its own. I bought a yard and only used about a third of it, so when I get more horses (lets face it I'm close to needing another one as it is) I will have foam. I also bought some remnant fleece from JoAnns. I found some really soft stuff that was a little over a yard, so I got that. The foam was the most expensive part at $6 and the fleece was next at about $5.50
Pic 3 - The last piece of foam can the hardest one to get in the well. At this point the horse, fleece and other chunks of foam take up just about all the space. So I got a little creative. I folded the foam in the remaining fleece and sort of wedged it in. It can help if you remove the horse, but I ended up getting the fleece pulled too tight so getting them in all the way was a problem. Once you get a couple done you will figure it out or develop a better way of doing it.
*Side Note - Cava reminds me of a sleeping kitten when he's sitting like this, I might have to make a performance set up?
Feel free to comment if you have any awesome storage ideas for Micros or if you have any questions on what I did.
Until another day, happy hunting.
