As always another great pattern from Miche Designs.
The luggage pattern is full of detailed instructions but this is not for the faint of heart. It took me 3 tries to get it right. I made the carry-on luggage with wheels. It is roomy and looks great. I couldn't find the wire/beads to make the expansion handle so I used the hard plastic part of a sponge hair curler and it worked fine. I glued the name tag holder over the straight part of the curler and it's tight. The directions are illustrated in great detail. I've made 2 more since then and each is great. The girls will love taking their dolls on trips. This is one of my favorite doll pattern designers and I buy almost everything she sells on Pixie Faire.
