Getaway bag / Tilda Circus

Getaway bag / Tilda Circus


I have made countless number of bags and pouches so far. However, whenever I need to pack for a few days of family trip,

I couldn’t find the right size bag! That’s because I love to make small cute pouches and a bag for a bookstore or brunch date.

When I saw this Tilda’s newest  Circus collection, the first idea came up was to make a big fag getaway bag.



It was hard to choose which motif to recreate from the prints. An Eliphant, birds, romantic flowers…anything would go perfectly for the focal point. My choice was a ballerina with umbrella.

Can you guess how I did? Copy a ballerina girl print fabric and enlarge it 200%. Cut out the motif and trace on the reverse side.

How easy is it! And I used Aurifil 12wt red color thread. If you don’t have 12wt, any weight would work.


I asked my girl to hold the bag for photo shoot. She said,

“It’s the most tiring arm exercise.” We both laugh out loud.

I love this girl. haha


Inspired by a fun trip to the circus, the Tilda Circus fabric is a wonderful collection of florals and elephants!

The wonderful combinationof red, green and blue will create stunning sewn projects, whatever fabric combination you choose.
