This was one of my favourite pattern tests yet! I loved piecing together all those little bits and it meant that I got to have a little fun with my fabrics! Plus it also meant I got to feature that gorgeous Bari J fabric that I am still hoarding 😉

After I made that one I knew I had to have fun with that little centre square and it just so happened I got the perfect fabrics from Robotmomsews and Lindsaysews on instagram. Plus I wanted to add my new addiction of paper piecing to that square and this is what I came up with:

See that fun centre? I made that up myself! I based it on the one fabric that has the fun star shape

The “Ticket” fabric was the perfect size for the small panels and fit exactly how I wanted them. Insider tip? Label your pieces as you cut them out so you don’t mix up pieces and put anything on upside down!

The back for this one I did solid. I wanted the paper pieced panel to be the star of the show… literally!

I also added an adjustable strap AND a zippered gusset to this gal too! She became my carrying on bag recently when I went away last month. I needed it to be easy to carry AND the ability to keep it closed on the plane!

I love both my bags so much even though they are very different but I bet you are asking, where is the pattern for that centre square? Well you are just going to have to wait! I am cooking up something extra special for this pattern and you’ll have to wait a little while longer before I can tell you what it is 😉
