I love taking old unloved things and making them new and I also love my dog Sophie. So this project was a combination of two things I really love.
This is how it started. An old suitcase from the thrift store ($3.00), a pillow, spray paint, and some fabric.
First I gutted the whole thing and gave it a good cleaning. Then I spray painted every nook and cranny with Krylon high gloss spray paint in "banner red".
Next came the fun part... accessorizing!
I covered an old pillow form with some blue floral delilah fabric. Crocheted up a mini granny bunting banner using Perle cotton size 5 and hung it at the top.
Sewed a new gingham pocket with lace edging for all of Sophie's toys (she has a lot).
Lastly, I painted a chipboard "S" white and added a cute crochet flower and leaves.
I think Sophie loves it :)
