I'd like some more ideas for those pockets inside the suitcases. I'm making a costume suitcase/table but I want to save the elasticized pockets after I saw some used in a project on Roboladys site. I have two sets of blueish lavender,and two sets of rust colored leather I want to take the pockets out of, the blueish suitcases I want to paint:)

Thanks for sharing...Snolady!

Wow, Snolady, that was allot of sites! I have the video from The Shabby Cottage that is shown on your first link. As she says, it is not the best quality, but it is fun to watch her paint the roses, and everything sure turns out lovely. I'm also honored that my painted suitcase is #3 on your list!

Kudzukween,do you mean you want to take the pockets out of the suitcase and use them for something else? If so, the only thing I can think of is to attach them to a padded board and use them as storage for jewelry, cosmetics, or even crafts--sort of like one of those shoe bags.
