…Except for handstitching up the bottom where I turned the bag right-side-out after everything was sewn. Which, let’s be honest, I’ll probably never do. The zipper is a little wonky, but I think it is just fine and functional.
I found the Aeroplane Bag pattern by Sarah Lawson at Sew Sweetness to be really clear. At a couple of places I wished I had the PDF pattern instead of a paper pattern so I could zoom in on the diagrams, but for the most part, this bag went together quickly and easily. And Juki handled the thick places like a champ, powering through at least 6 layers of fabric and Soft and Stable in places.
The lining is pink Outfoxed triangles and the pocket is Flea Market Fancy.
And I even used it last weekend, packing it up and taking it to a cousin’s wedding in NH. It is the perfect size for a long weekend getaway!
