DIY Fabric Covered Suitcases


We found a bunch of old green suitcases at the Salvation Army warehouse and snagged them for exactly that... a new take on storage and a new use for an old item.   But cute? they were not.  So my  teammate, Pavitra found this awesome idea online and gave it a go.  Here are her instructions for this fun DIY project:

First we picked out these cute fabrics. We picked fabrics with small prints.



After a light cleaning the suitcases were ready to go.


Using Mod Podge, attach the fabric to the suitcase. Using a rotary cutter, clean up the edges. 


Once you do one, the rest go quickly.


Now you have lovely finished suitcases that can be used for storage, decoration, or whatever!
