Daisy and the little old suitcase makeover

On a recent trip out to a new vintage shop in Southwell
I happened upon this little fella.

On closer inspection he appeared to have had a spot
of trouble in his past.
Yes he has clearly been mistaken for a fire bucket
poor soul.

So I took him home and found some
best wrapping paper and set to work.

First I cut two pieces for each end and 
used pva to glue them down.

(he was already starting to feel much better)

I then measured a piece for the back, base and front panels.

Here he is all finished.

I have managed to save the original paper covering
in the lid as it wasn't damaged...

and now he can be used again.
I've named him Stanley and he
is now full of fabric.

What have you been up to this week?
I would love to hear about it.
Have a relaxing evening.
