Ok sooo… from my last vintage suitcase post I decided to reupholster it for the purpose of it being a suitcase and also storing fabric. When it’s not a suitcase and it’s storing fabric I put my cutting mat, patchwork ruler and cutter thingys in the polka dot pocket.
This is the before and after.. apologies for the not so amazing photograph but I had some trouble carrying the case around. I removed all the lining fabric and the suitcase was absolutely stinking.. awful!
This was the original lining attempt with ikea fabric.. the glue gun didnt work and I ran out of fabric glue so I used some PVA but it soaked right through the fabric and it was still sinky so I had to remove it…
So scraping I did… It had lots of wooly things stuck to glue which appeared to be harbouring the smell.
These are some terrible phone pictures trying to decide about the lining. The pink stripey lining were scented drawer liners and I ended up running out of the liners! That I’ve had forever. And that was the in progress picture. It was an absolute nightmare and I am never doing it again. That is a promise ^_^
Have you guys taken on any of these bad boys?
Lots of love Claire xo
