I had two partners in the SURPRISE Swap that is just finishing up.  I made a large zippered tote bag/purse for each of them, using a pattern I designed a while ago.  I customized each bag to correspond to each partners' interests.

For queenofmarigold, who likes rainbows, the Rainbow Bag:

I used HeatnBond lite to hold all the small rectangles in place, then sewed around the edge of each one.  It just about drove me crazy!


The back has a big rainbow pocket


There is a small rainbow at the top of the inner pocket



And for muddy21, who likes luna moths, the Luna Moth Bag:

I used HeatnBond lite to position the pieces of the moth, then sewed all around the edges and added the details on the sewing machine


This haiku was written by muddy21; I found it on her blog, along with a photo of a luna moth she found in her yard.

Those are both really cool, but my favorite is the rainbow one. I bet it did take forever, but I think the results are worth it.

Two stunning bags.  I love the rainbow with all the different fabric patterns but I also adore the moth.

These are just beautiful! I think that rainbow bag is the happiest bag I have ever seen. Grin And the luna moth is so pretty. You did a great job on these!
