My First Aeroplane Bag

You read that right, my first, as in I can't wait to make another!

Clearly I love Sara's patterns, and this pattern has been on my "I want to sew that" list since it was in the pattern testing phase. I was pretty excited when Sara asked if I would like to make a bag for her booth at market - out of her new fabric Fantasia - I knew it would have to be an Aeroplane Bag. Here it is in Krokos Sprites Teal, with Canary yellow. Perfection! 

This bag came together so quickly - I can hardly believe it. I loved the process since it's so much like making a zip pouch -- perfect for me! I would recommend this pattern to anyone who wants to make an overnight bag that they don't have to spend a year planning and gearing up for (Weekender anyone?). This one is much more attainable and fun! 

If you're at Quilt Market this weekend, stop by Sara's Art Gallery booth and check out this bag and all her other fab projects. I can't wait to stalk all the designer's Instagram feeds for all the beautiful pics! Maybe someday I will make it to Market, but until then I'll live through everyone else's pretty pics!


  1. First of many is a good place to be when it comes to making things. Love the bag. I'll be taking the virtual tour of market as well, thank goodness for IG and blogs

  2. Really cute! I especially love your selvage zipper pull, very clever!
