My next project!

With my new Wacom pen tablet on it's way and a new laptop on the horizon I spied this genius idea with clear directions on how to turn a suitcase into a kitchy, vintage, laptop case on Craftzine. I can't wait to try this!! I also hopped over to a blog called Naughty Secretary that showcased a whole slew of ideas for what to do with suitcases. I think my cats would love their own beds made from old suitcases. =)

Here are the directions for turning your own suitcase into something reminiscent of your Going To Grandma's suitcase from childhood! Go here for the complete directions since I just clipped the pics!
