Everything I thought of involved alot of bulky new kit. But then My local Sue Ryder (charity shop) had a makeover and became Sue Ryder Vintage! How great is that!! I picked up this rather battered old case for a tenner. Happy days!
It needed a bit of a clean up. I lined the inside with black velvet, covered some foam board with more black velvet (all from my fabric stash), added a bit of red velvet around the edges and there it is. Done. Height ,check, accessibility - brooches can be lifted from their pins very easily, check, and its a suitcase - designed for carrying around, check.
I've made a wee sign now too, so I'll move the pins around a little to accomodate it. Hopefully this should be quick to set up too. I'll let you know when I try it out at 100% Handmade in Ilkley on Saturday, details below.
