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.

Lovely bag. The lining is exactly right.  It all looks so professional. And the unicorn is adorable.
