And I just love the gathered panel below, I'm still thinking about what I can do with this treasure!!
Look at the straps lying in the bottom of this suitcase. Looks as though they have never been untied! I love the way they look and plan on keeping them tied and using them in another project.
This last suitcase is not one for my artwork, but just one that I keep in our bedroom on the large cedar chest at the foot of the bed. I love the lining of it ~ it is the most unique color. Funny to see beauty is such an ordinary item . . .
