Tape the areas you don’t want to be painted.  Make sure every bit of metal is taped.
Is this a pain? Heck yeah! But the final product is worth it!

Time to paint!
You don’t need to spray the entire suitcase since you are going to cover it with fabric.
Just make sure to cover all the areas that will be exposed.

Place the fabric on top of one side of the suitcase and cut the amount needed to cover the area.
Leave 1 inch of extra fabric around it so it is easy to pull and work with…
Do the same thing for the other side.

This step is SO important.
Paint the areas where you are going to put the fabric with Mod-Podge.
BE GENEROUS and pay attention to the corners and edges.

While de Mod-Podge is wet place the fabric on top of it.
Paint the fabric with Mod-Podge just like you did with the suitcase.
With the help of a dull knife or your nails press against the edges so it really sticks to the suitcase.
Use your hand to smooth the fabric. Pull and press YOU DON’T WANT BUBBLES of air between the suitcase and the fabric.

With an exacto knife {I couldn’t find mine so I just had the blade} cut the excess fabric CAREFULLY.
Check my hands OUT… I’m a mess!
