Unwanted Doll Trunk!

Who wouldn't want this cute little doll trunk?
Someone that knew it had a hole in the bottom of it! :(

But wait!
I can fix that!

All I need is some old chair webbing,
a glue gun and 5 mins.

Press the paper down from the inside.
Start gluing from the center out.

Turn it over, do the bottom and there you have it!
Ready to hold some cute little doll clothes again!

It still has the little hook in the top to hang the clothes!

See how easy that was?
Looks like it's been there for a long time!

That's all I've been doing for the last couple of days,
gluing, screwing, cleaning and pricing!
Only 18 days before we leave for Texas!
I can't hardly wait!

We are set up at Marburger Farms
Tent H~Booth 16

Come by and see us.

Oh,Theresa, I remember seeing those little suitcases around when I was a kid. I wanted one even back then. What a good "fix" you did. It looks like it was an old-timey patch-done long ago. Love it...and I am excited for you to get to your show! xo Diana
