Following a very expensive trip (isn’t it always !) to the Newark Antique show last year, I came home with some of the most yummy goodies including a very sad looking leather case.
For £10 it was coming home with me regardless of it’s state. I quite like buying ‘sad’ things, because most are past their best and it gives me ‘permission’ to do what I like with them, to up-cycle or revamp in my own way.
This is what it ended up like but it looked a little bit different before I started.
A Case of Where to Start
The satin effect lining was falling apart and part of the lining in the lid was ripped out. The seam stitching to the back of the lid had gone, but I loved it.
