DIM (Do-It-Myself) rework suitcase

There are tonnes of DIYs or DIM (Do-It-Myself) pictures of how to rework old vintagey suitcases on the internet. However, I just couldn't find the one that I want to do that is easy peasy and requires no hardwork (I know, I'm superlazy).
 
So the nearest (yang kira senang) is to use glue instead of sewing fabric onto the suitcase (I suck at sewing by the way, and baking).
 
I got this suitcase from my husband's aunty. No one wanted it. I senyum je sebab semua orang taknak hehehehe...

Brand apa pun taktau suitcase nih tapi perfect la for my project. This is how it looks on the inside:

One look at it, I really don’t know how to do or what to do. I researched on how to but tak menepati citarasa I yang sebenar, they either requires sewing or tools that I don’t have. So I pikir, baik I ikut yang style gam-gam je…..sonang kojo den.
 
So basically I glued fabric (which I bought from Daiso) and cleaned it properly (except for the rusty bit) I tak reti camne nak buat. The leather outside my hubby cleaned it with leather mosturiser that he bought from Timberland.
 
Pocket longgar-longgar tu we just used tack to make it nice. The top part I tampal kain batik lebihan. I think that is all that we did. It turned out ok, I guess. The result:

I used it for my recent project for sweetalmiraz. You can check it out in this entry Vintage Lavender themed Wish Tree and Mini Candy Buffet in sweetalmiraz’s blog.
 
Kalau boleh nak kumpul suitcases banyak-banyak sebab dalam kepala otak ni banyak projek yang dipikirkan using the suitcases. This is one of the ideas which I saw in Haji Lane in Singapore baru-baru ni.

Tapi, mahal wei orang jual suitcases ni. They can go up thousands you know, depending on the brand and durability, and size as well. Vintage items are expensive! These are some of the suitcases that I saw in Anggerik Mall, boleh tahan mahal jugak harganya.

Private Event: Preview of new collection of accessories at Louis Vuitton Gardens MV, Kuala Lumpur

I had the opportunity to tail my new instagram friend to LV Gardens and experienced a private event; the preview of new scarves and accessories for LV Malaysia last month (nampak sangat lama tak update blog nih)…

Since this was my first time, I was a bit nervous...(it was nothing actually)....I was just being kekok.

Came in a bit late but managed to squeeze in between 2 other friends whom I met that day.

LV had the COO and Image Consultant of Sri Munawwarah, Mrs Haslina Mohd Ali to demonstrate the many ways to style the LV scarves. Many of the styles were simple but classic looks without the use of multiple pins.

I enjoyed my time so much (first time, excited lebih la ni)...and tetiba rasa nak bag LV (eh)….

I didn’t manage to snap the scarfs, they were like hot cakes! Everyone wanted to see and hold them. I dok diam-diam jer perati gelagat peminat LV….

Art of Speed 2013

Weekends ago, we went to Citta Mall for a whole lot of different art bazaar. It was the Art of Speed bazaar, which showcased vintage, antique and everything about cars, motorcycles and bikes.

My husband loves these things so asked me to join in the fun, coz you know, the normal bazaars always have girls stuffs and not many of boys stuffs. This Art of Speed was indeed a new level of boy-bazaar-experience.

Just look at the bikes pictures here...and bikes and bikes

Can you see the Hot Wheels cut out box at the back? Those who came early had the opportunity to take a picture of their vehicle inside the ‘box’….as if a person just bought a Hot Wheels toy car…..awesome!…

More pictures that I snapped (while hubby busy looking here and there):
