This idea is not mine but I’m so happy that someone else came up with it and is offering the FREE pattern. Lorraine of ikatbag.com fame designed this wonderful Airplane Bag pattern for a bag for airline travel. She has some incredible patterns on her website, some free and some for sale. Her instructions are great, too! Granted, I did not follow the instructions as written but adapted her pattern for my own use. I do plan on making a few of these for family members if and when they decide to fly again. Did I mention the pattern is FREE?!
I used a sturdy cotton fabric (in my fabric stash for 30-35 years!) for the exterior, satiny smooth fabric for the interior, grosgrain ribbon for the hanging loops, and leftover plastic cord from my upholstery projects. Plus two magnetic hooks to attach the bag to the metal door.
We keep it attached to the metal door that leads out into our garage so we can grab a face mask when we go out the door.
