Millions of black suitcases spin around and around luggage carousels everyday, all looking the same. I regularly wonder how often it happens that the wrong suitcase it picked up and brought home by some poor, unsuspecting individual. Can you imagine the shock of opening your suitcase to find someone else’s underwear? Well, you can avoid this terrible fate by personalizing your luggage with your very own homemade luggage strap! definitely a much cheaper option than replacing all of your black and boring luggage!
Not only will such a strap make your luggage look fancy, and undoubtedly be the envy of all your fellow travellers, but it will keep your bag secure and its contents from shifting around too much during transit. There really is no reason not to make yourself a snazzy strap!
Over on the i like orange blog there is a great PDF pattern with full instructions (including pictures!) provided by the very talented Michelle Lizcano so you should have no trouble whipping up this great travel craft yourself. I think I’ll be making one for myself this very weekend!
