Last 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.
The 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.
