Travele Train Case....

I am almost finished with my latest project....I bought a "American Tourist" train case at a local thrift shop for $3.00... and with some gift wrap, decoupage' medium, varathyn & assorted trims and is the case now...almost completed...I ran short a strand of faux pearls to glue to the bottom side of the burgundy ribbon. So in true crafter fashion, hubby & I will make a mad dash over into Spokane to "Joanns Fabric" to pick up some more pearls so I can finish my case.
I have two other cases that I decoupaged (several years ago) and I use them for stashing goodies like crochet hooks & yarn as well as unfinished cross stitch projects.
My new Train Case will have a new home in my trailer "Gracie-Girl".
I have decided on a 'Vintage Victorian Outdoors Woman' theme for my New-Old trailer.
This is such a fun project. You can do a vintage theme, a retro theme, a pet theme or what ever.
But the best part besides being an inexpensive project, is it makes for a cute storage case.

  1. LoVe your cases Gracie! You are so good at all that you do! So pretty!


  2. What a fantastic idea. I remember having one of these cases as a teenager. I've looked a couple times for one but now I know what to do with it when I get it. Great job!


I love hearing from you....
