Just a quick one

Dear Readers,

I was asked by a friend of mine, how to make suitcases for Sylvanians out of cardboard.

Therefore I made a quick tutorial.

You need: 
Thin cardboard, some colours (if you want to colour it) or fabric (to cover it), hook-and-loop fastener.

Step 1: 
Draw something like this on your cardboard, or take this picture as a model. Cut it out.

Step 2:
Cut in the lines of the small triangle, so you can fold them. Fold all the lines and glue together. You'll have this result:

Step 3:
Now you can colour it, or cover in in fabric (like, you'll see in the following pictures.

Lay the suitcase on the fabric and glue it onto the fabric.

Here you see, that I'll just turned the fabric into the suitcase - it's really easy. I promise :).

Than add some hook-and-loop fastener on both sides.

Add a handel (I've also applied these old bordures to give the suitcase an "antique" look)

And you're done :). 

Hornbull Buttercup proudly presents: his new suitcase :D.

Hope, you had fun with this tutorial.

Part 2 of the moles house story will come soon :).

Many greetings,
yours Kyra


  1. Great job and thanks for sharing.

  2. Gorgeous suitcase! I love the old fashioned look :)

  3. I love that suitcase! It's much better than the plastic one that SF sells. And by the way I love that minion in the background!
