mod podge and markets.......


I have a new best friend......it comes in many shapes and sizes and has a very groovy font...I know I'm a little late to the party for Mod Podge crushes but now I know what all the fuss is about :).....


it helped me turn my cute little vintage cases into these :)

and also on the inside....


I am planning lots more Mod Podging activities...if you would like to know how to do the outside of the suitcase there is a fab tutorial over here


......other non Mod Podge related news is that littleteawagon cushions and bunting have been featured in   Prima June 2012 Craft Supplement Magazine. Its a really lovely little mag with lots of nice ideas for making and sewing like this.......


.....also this weekend I will be packing my ModPodged little cases full of bags and bunting and prints and vintage supplies and heading down to the Magpies and I vintage craft market in Altrincham...this is not something I do very often ( I like to hide away in my little garden shed mostly ) but a very lovely new friend....oooh betty  has invited me to share a stall with her and her very lovely vintagey and retro things....how could I refuse?... we will no doubt spend the afternoon chatting and drinking lots of tea and getting quite giddy :)

so with that I will wish you a very happy weekend.. 
I know its only Thursday but I am thinking ahead  :)

  9. The suitcases are brilliant! Love 'em! Well done for discovering Mod Podge, it does a myriad of great jobs. I really like to use it to make collage look good, not just the sticking-down stuff but it give almost a varnished effect if you go over the whole thing when its finished!

    And yes, you can certainly find it in most hobby/craft shops in the UK and on-line too.

    Oh I have absolutlely NO connection with Mod Podge! :)

  14. Hello sweet Jane, I love all of your cheerful photos! You did a wonderful job with the vintage cases! What a lovely difference the fabric makes. The bunting is so pretty too! Yay! I am so happy your beautiful creations are featured in Prima. I will have to see if I can find that magazine here. It looks very pretty and inspiring. I hope you have a fun day at the craft market! I like to stay at home too, but I know you will enjoy the time with your friend and sell lots of your pretties too! Have a very happy weekend too! xo~Paula

  15. Funny, I've never tried Mod Podge before either. I've held it in my hands at the craft store, then put it back on the shelf. Thanks for the inspiration!
