Aeroplane Bag

This bag is great for a weekend getaway or make the longer version to carry your sewing machine.  Either way this bag has a story bottom, fun shape, and padded sides.  We will work on putting a zipper into a curved opening and become familiar with several types of interfacing.  The shop has lots of great options for both your exterior and lining fabrics.
