I don't remember where I saw it first but I have had serious crush on reworked vintage suitcases. As per usual, I decided to take the cheap route and waited until I found with a good price and a good shape. Cost breakdown:
Suitcase 5.50
Spraypaint 3.90
Pompom Trim from Ebay 2
Vintage fabric (I got 5 meters for two euros) 50 cents
Foam to pad the insides 4
Fabric to cover the foam 1
In total 17 which I think is reasonable for this cuteness.

In progress pictures first...

I love this thing passionately and  I'm going to use it whenever I travel to hold my crafty things and snacks.

Comments and criticism and questions are more than welcome! Just be gentle as this is my favourite thing I ever pimped!

With Crafty Greetings,
Niina
