When I started thinking about making my own picnic basket I thought I would come across a classic basket I could re-do but then I ran into a great thrift store find. I don’t sew so I need projects that avoid sewing or a way I can pull off a project without making a stitch. This project fits the bill.
I picked up this old suitcase for just $5! I also bought red spray paint with primer for plastic, blue trim tape, glue and two kinds of coordinating fabric. I bought 3/4 of yard of each and it was plenty. I trimmed my suitcase with tape to cover all the silver parts I wanted to save then applied two coats of paint.
