[DIY:::fabric covered vintage suitcase]...

hello there!

well apparently i took a vacation from blogging this month...

sorry...about that...time got away from me.  :)

but to redeem my laziness...

i have a tutorial for you today...

you're welcome!  ;)

this is one of my faves actually.

it's no mystery that i collect and love vintage luggage...

i'm drawn to it.  :)

 but..whist doing a bit of shuffling things around...

i discovered that two suitcase in particular looked sad...

and needed a make-over so i decided to cover the tops of them in vintage fabric...

and give one a bit of a paint job...



1. you need to measure your fabric...

making sure to leave a good inch of overhang all the way around....

then cut.

[on a side note::: i find that the tried and true carpentry rule of "measure twice, cut once" is also true with fabric projects.  ;)]





and one more time...
