Vintage Fabric Decoupage Suitcase

Try a decoupage suitcase covered with vintage inspired fabric. It’s much easier to do than you’d think, and makes great storage!

Mod Podge a suitcase

Have you grown tired of Mod Podge suitcases yet? Good, because neither have I. I spotted this decoupage suitcase at Sew Can Do as a guest posting by Jean of the Quilted Cupcake.

She uses it for yarn storage (my yarn storage container is here). It’s really perfect – and only cost $4. I could Mod Podge some suitcases for storage but then I fear my apartment would look like Delta’s baggage claim with all that I need to store.

I guess it’s time to pare down! Do you want a Mod Podged suitcase? Visit the tutorial here.

After I posted this decoupage suitcase I decided to try my own version using photos! Check out my vintage photo DIY suitcase – I used some really great photos!

In this DIY suitcase project, you'll attach your favorite photos to a vintage find using Mod Podge! This is so easy to do and you'll love the results.

Yep! I am working on one now. Love that one! I think the key is to be patient and keep on pushing the fabric into the tight places :-)

Spray paint works pretty good on the hardware. Make sure you mask first!

I have been wanting to do this... to a few suitcases and stack them as storage (meets cool!). Love what you did.
