I just missed out on entering last month Le Challenge, this month I was determined to be finished in time. As soon as I saw the theme 'Wings', I commented on whether my Aeroplane bag would count on the Le Challenge blog and Nat confirmed that it would - woo hoo I had a plan!
and here it is...
I used Melody Miller Sparkles mixed with some Essex yarn dyed linen in black for the exterior ( no surprises there then!).
I really love this pattern, my only regrets are not using a stiffer interfacing on the top half as my bag is a little floppy for my liking. The zipper was also a bit of a bugger, but as I can't talk about it without wanting to rip my hair out, the less said the better.
Not content with one bag, I had to make a couple of matchy matchy little extras using this pattern. I made the telephones sling bag and then decided it was still too big, so reduced the pattern to 75% and tried again. It is a great pattern with very clear instructions and is a very quick make.
The little bag is perfect for carrying my phone, keys, purse and passport. So now I am ready to travel - not that I have any plans!
