Emma's Train Case

My granddaughter, Emma, turns 10 on Aug.1. She has been begging me to do a train case for her for at least a year. I really put a lot of things on this one. You can't see the wooden balls that I put on the bottom for feet. They have french blue and white dots on them. Again I covered the handle with a leopard print silk velvet. I put ball fringe around the bottom and trimmed it with lots of different trims. She will be thrilled!

Vests & Train Case

These are some of the items I have been working on lately. I will be visiting my sister tomorrow and I will be taking her the train case and a vest that I did. I had some denim jackets that I cut the sleeves out of and then cut all the edges and washed them to fray the edges. I had some ancient music that I bought on my trip to Paris in March. I made copies of that as well as the other copy free images you see. The images on the train case are from old French postcards that I own. I used vintage jewelry on all the pieces.
