Bluebird Park Suitcase Bag by Kathie
So long suitcase bag
I keep trying to make a great large (but not too large) bag as a carryon for my trips to visit my scattered children. I'm off to Portland and thought I'd quickly make this one as it looked large enough and I just love this fabric! Well . . . this bag is beautiful but HUGE! It's bigger than my carryon suitcase so I don't think they'll let me take it.
Once I'm done with the lining (I'm slowing down since it's not going with me), I'll have a great bag for weekends and dragging around quilting projects and supplies :smile:.
I used my favorite Bluebird Park fabric by Kate & Birdie Paper Co. for Moda that I've been hoarding. I just love those hedgehogs! The "So Long Suitcase Bag
" pattern is free and by Lilac Lane
. I like the fact that it uses Pellon #70 for the structure of the bag. I think I'm going to add pockets to the inside now that I'm not rushing to get it done.
Oh, BTW, the dimensions are 25" x 19" x 7".
