Case 14a Unique gifts: How to Update a Vintage Suitcase

Sewing patterns

When I found this vintage suitcase, I knew it would be perfect for my girls’ dress-up clothes. And thanks to a brilliant suggestion by Jude of Colour Giggles, I neutralized the musty smell of the case by pouring kitty litter in it and forgetting about it for several months.

I recently received the new Land of Nod catalog and fell in love with all the quirky illustrations. I took my vintage suitcase and made a happy design from an image that I found in the cataloge – and you can too!
