2wenty Thr3e Aeroplane Bag

Aeroplane BagLast night while waiting for my husband to get home, I finished up my Aeroplane bag! Pattern is from Sew Sweetness.

This one is the Long size.  I had a charm pack of 2wenty Thr3e by Cosmo Cricket (they did the Salt Air line I love so much) that I pieced together to make the top part.  I found that fusing my patchwork to some fusible fleece, then quilting it with 2″ straight line quilting, and then backing it with some Pellon Decor Bond gave me the stability I wanted from the top.  And the layers weren’t too back to sew through.

Aeroplane BagThe bottom twill is leftover from the lining of the first Weekender bag I made.  The interior lining is a pink polka dot fabric from my stash, and I included only 1 interior zip pocket.  I also added an exterior pocket between the handles on one side.

For the Long size, I cut a piece of fabric 12 1/2″ by 14 1/2″, fused it to some Decor Bond, and then folded it in half so it measured 12 1/2″ x 7 1/2″. Then I just sewed it in place when stitching the handles on to the top portion.

FYI, the Long size can hold one (1) large cat as well.

  1. I really like the grey on this bag. Perhaps it is the combination of the grey and the Cosmo Cricket (they did the Circa 1934 fabric I used for my Stepping Stones quilt, BTW) that make this so appealing. Nice job.

  2. I was inspired by your bag to make a similar one of my own. How many charm squares did you piece for each panel? I’m not the best at figuring these things out and my numbers seem to be different. Thanks Pam. Love the podcast and blog!

    1. I did two panels of 5 charms by 3 charms. 5 charms wasn’t quite wide enough, so I trimmed the top of the pieced panel with the curve for the pattern, and then sewed those trimmed bits on the side near the bottom to make it wide enough. You could go 6 x 3 to avoid doing that, but I was greedy with my charms and wanted to just use the scraps for that little bit on the very edge.
