How Tuesday: Super Cute Suitcases!

So, I was on A Beautiful Mess's Blog and found the coolest DIY suitcase re-upholstery! Which the link will guide you back to! I've got  the need for adventure tingling in my veins, so making this little project was soothing. Onward to the project!

Step One.
One suitcase with side stitching like this one has. Acquired for the high price of 3.98 (!!!) 
Fabric of choosing
Mod Podge
Brush (to apply Mod Podge)
Good Scissors
Butter Knife, or in my case sculpting tool of unknown name.

Step Two.

Flip your fabric so the wrong side is facing up. Place on suitcase and with pencil trace the area of your suitcase by following the divot along the edge of the suitcase where the seam is.

Step Three. 

Trim you fabric about 1/2 inch away from where you marked it.

Step Four.

Mod Podge the heck outta that there suitcase!

Okay, okay, don't go crazy! Mod Podge a bit at a time laying down your fabric over it and sort of pressing down on your fabric to really secure it. 

Step Five.

Utilize whatever tool you have to tuck in the fabric into the seam. If you want you can secure it even further with some more Mod Podge. 

And there you have it! Super easy and so much fun.
Make sure to let each side completely dry before heading on to the next one! 
I'm pretty exited to go travling with my new suitcase, not gonna even try to lie about that one.

Love and Strawberry Kisses xo
