Old Luggage Make-over

 I found this super fun vintage case the other day while thrifting. I've never seen one quite like it before. I actually still don't really know what it if anyone does, let me know!  I had some ideas of how to spice it up so I had to get it.  It was such a unique little storage box. I thought I'd share my little craft with you. 

Supplies you need:

1 fun storage container ( hat box, luggage, etc.)
scrap fabric
hot glue gun
a pen for tracing
...and a little bit of time

1) Collect some cute fabrics and get your adorable old luggage out.
 2) Cut out your fabrics in the design that you want
3) Lay them out on your luggage the way you want them before you begin gluing.

 4)  Glue your fabrics down with the hot glue gun.

 5)  If you want to cover the inside, it can add a lot of fun color...or cover up stains.

 -Trace the outside of your luggage to get the overall shape.
 -You may have to do some extra trimming to make it fit just right.
 -Begin gluing, starting from one end, working out the wrinkles as you go.
... Wa La!


Easy as pie!
I hope you make's lots of fun.  I'd love to see yours too!
