In the recent Surprise Swap on Craftster, I had two partners. I've already shown you the Luna Moth bag I made for one partner; I decided I should make a fabulous bag for my other partner too--after all, she stated on her questionnaire that that she is a "sucker" for bags!
This partner had a rainbow pillow on her Pinterest so I used that as the inspiration for her bag.
Here's the front. Placing all those little rectangles of fabric was really easy because I used HeatnBond lite, but I REALLY should have used the ultrahold version, because I had to sew around the edges of each and every one of those rectangles...and it drove me a little bit crazy! As I was planning the bag, I thought the stitching would add a lot visually, but with the finished product in front of me, I have to say it would have been fine without the stitching. So, I learned something!
The back of the bag features one great big rainbow pocket:
The inside of the bag features this luminous blue fabric lining. The top of the inner pocket is accented with a strip of the rainbow that was left over from making the back pocket.
Yes, my bag-and-rainbow-loving partner loves this bag! In fact, the pictures she posted of it show it full of her belongings--she started using it almost the minute she opened the package! Another success!
