A Vintage Suitcase Makeover

So I was visiting my mother-in-law a while back. She lives in an active Senior Living facility in Decatur. Anyway, on my way out the door I passed by this awesome vintage suitcase by the trash. The inside was hideous. But I ripped out the inside, aired it out and bought some gold fabric and decided it would make a great prop!

First you need GOOD scissors, fabric and a hot glue gun (I don't sew) 
 I started with the top. I glued one inside edge and folded the fabric down for a clean edge and pressed it into place
I smoothed out the fabric and repeated on the sides and the on the bottom edge 
 I did the bottom the same way, folding the edges and gluing them in as best as I could
the final product
I did not make it perfect as I am going to mainly use it for newborns and it will be filled with blankets and pillows so I did not need it to be perfect
