It's time for a mini vacation

Well, at least it is for some mini dollhouse woman. I made this suitcase and its contents today. Everything is removable but the clothing is not wearable. The suitcase doesn't close but the lid does move into several different positions. Since the interior of the case is black you can't tell in the photos but there are side pockets and two pockets on the top inside for small items.

The suitcase is made from a mint tin. I bought the mints just so I could have the tin when the mints were gone - typical miniaturist!
