Oh, man.  I searched for Black Apple's ghost and found these cookies, which made me squee!
I've only ever seen her girl prints before.  Those are so cute.

BUT THAT WANNA BUY A GHOST VIDEO!!!! It's soooo funny.  You taught me two new things, lilac print!  Thanks!

I love it! Reminds me of Black Apple's ghost, or Waverly Films 'wanna buy a ghost?' video.  Cheesy

Ooh, now I'm gonna have to look those up!  I'm a sucker for ghosty things, ever since pac man was my favorite video game as a little girl.

I haven't done any embroidery in awhile, but I finished this piece today: 

I'm really excited about it!  I'm gonna put it on the cover of my new catalog.

You're SO talented.  I am always in awe of how flawless your stitching is!

Oh, and forever ago you recommended a book on the embroidery technique that you use... I wisted it and forgot about it, and then my husband bought it for my birthday!  I'm so excited....

Thanks, katie!

Maybe you could add clear vinyl over the felty parts? Like sew a large square around the design.

I think I'm just gonna go ahead and let it get dirty.  Vinyl is probably the best solution though.  Thanks!
10  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Completed Projects / Ugly suitcases are completely unacceptable. on: September 01, 2008 12:32:47 PM
I've never owned real luggage before, even though I'm about to turn 30 and I go on regular vacations.  My luggage suite consists of:

1-large green duffel bag very faded and beat up that I used to take to summer camp, purchased in 1988

1-Red hello kitty duffle bag given to me as a gift by my bf probably circa 1999

2-very cute and VERY small matching 1960's overnight bags

You see my problem.  And yet, I absolutely HATE owning anything ugly, which is why I've never bought suitcases.  I finally bit the bullet and bought a set of two very big and very practical suitcases at Goodwill for $15 for the pair.

You know the type... with wheels and a handle... utterly generic.... indistinguishable from every other suitcase coming down the luggage carousel.

I couldn't take it.  I had to craftster them up.  I pulled out some felt and a hot glue gun and put on a movie, and this is what I came up with:

Mine(yes, I took the bigger suitcase for myself):

The boy's: 


I'm pretty happy with the results.  I have no idea how durable this will be, but I'm leaving on vacation in a week, so I'll find out.  Plus, this project cost me about $20 for the supplies AND the suitcases, so ya can't beat that.

What do you guys think?  Any suggestions for travel-proofing the felty part?
