This project I made with my grandchild and other small children in mind. It can be put together using a suit case, makeup case, or caboodle caddy. This a convenient carrier and play toy that can be used as a carry on, on a plane, or when traveling by car. Your child's favorite toy(s) are easily tucked away for travel and clean up.

Total Time: 2 hours

Yield: 1


  • travel case
  • fabric
  • craft paints
  • glue gun
  • scissors
  • Teddy bear
  • foam cushion (optional)


  1. Paint the inside of your case, allow to dry.
  2. Cut foam to size using you case as a template. This will be placed in the lid of my bag, making a comfy mattress that will be wrapped in fabric and hot glued together.
  3. Using a separate piece of fabric, loosely make a pocket using (1/2 piece of fabric) long enough to tuck underneath your foam cover. Hot glue the sides, base, and bottom to the lid of your case.
  4. To make sure there is a enough room in the pocket. Pre-place your teddy for room.

  6. For extra detail a window scene was painted and fabric curtains hot glued in place.

Great idea!! I especially like this for little kids too young to be captivated by an electronic device (Are there any left? )!
