The first of the Aeroplanes for Patchwork In The Peaks is out of the hanger… (I may or may not have abandoned these sorts of references by the time #4 is finished)

For version #1 I made up a Model Aeroplane after seeing the idea at FQR when Pennie was sporting hers:

Borrowed from Pennie’s blog

After seeing her measurements, hers ended up a bit bigger than mine, which I think goes to show, it all depends how you shrink a pattern how it turns out!

Here’s Jack with mine for a bit of scale:

What do you mean you have no idea what size he is?  Well, okay, here it is alongside a rather less cute 12 1/2″ ruler.  Mine’s about 8″ x 9″ x 5 1/2″

Inside I used a Sandy Gervais print I got in a sale a couple of years ago.  I thought it added a nice pop of colour against the grey.

Up, up and away to the next one then.
