So I joined the Unicorn Swap and got partnered with dreadlady who loves rainbows and unicorns as much as I do so I wanted to make her something special. It's my second bag and while it didn't come out as well as the first one I made, I still really love it. The front panel is patchworked together and then the unicorn is appliqued on and has an embroidered face. I normally can't find lining fabric that works well with whatever outside fabric I chose so I usually go with solids, but when I was meandering past the remnants bin I found this rainbow striped fabric that was exactly the colors I had already chosen so I had to get it.

I couldn't find any 1.5" webbing locally so I had to sew my own strap which I think I like better anyway. I originally wanted to do contrast stitching on it in rainbow colors, but just couldn't get the lines perfectly straight and it looked crappy so I ripped it all out and just did black. I did modify the pattern by interfacing all the gusset pieces (I meant to do the front and back panels too but forgot) for more structure and I changed the flap closure to velcro. It was really difficult to line that up with no markings on the pattern...

Anyway, it has a front pocket under the flap, another velcro pocket on the back, two elastic topped pockets on the sides, and inside it has pockets for like pens and a notepad or whatever. So lots of pockets! Made out of quilting cotton and black denim. Unicorn design was based on some Valentines from Target that I found on GIS but can't find again. The pattern is from Michelle Patterns (formerly KeykaLou?) Okay I'll stop talking now.
