  • The New Girl!

    Hi

    I have just joined this forum, it looks fab!!

    Am after some help really! I have just inheritd an old suitcase(paddington bear style) and have discovered the inside is a grubby orange colour. I have just bought some gorgeous vintage fabric to reline it.

    Can anyone give me some advice how to reline it so as to acheive a nice neat finish ? Also would I need to put a layer of plain fabric on first?? as my vintage fabric is quit pale, so abit worried the orange will show through!

    And last but not least, what adhesive do I use??

    Would appriate all your help

    Liz.

      aboard! If you don't get any answers to your query, you may need to post a separate thread in the relevant section of the Forum as this thread is in the "Introduce Yourself" section. A new thread with a good title will definitely attract the attention of many crafters on here who would be able to advise you. Feel free to ask any of us mods for advice at any time (our names are in green so we are easy to spot!)

      Hope you enjoy your time here!

        Hello Liz and to the forum

        With the relining I would take out the existing lining and cut a pattern from that, stitching the sides and using an adhesive to adhere to the suitcase.

                      You need to go to the relevant section of the forum and click on the New Thread icon at the top left hand corner of the forum page.

                      So for example, when someone wants to post a message in the Introduce yourself to the Craft Forum, they would click on the link to that Forum. When that section appears, just below the title of the Forum is that button that says 'New Thread'. Click there and it'll take you to the page to enter your title and text.

                      HTH and that I haven't stepped on anyone's toes as a newbie!!
