I recently made this Portal-themed bag for my partner queenofmarigold in the Video Game Round 2 swap.

The front of the bag features a Companion Cube made out of felt, appliqued to the bag with felt glue.  (I was pleasantly surprised that the glue kept the felt stuck to the bag, even all the way across the ocean!)  The two quotes are from GLaDOS, the games' primary antagonist, and were done in fabric paint.

It was interesting making this bag, because I have never played either of the Portal games before, and so I had to do some research on it.  The snarky, sarcastic comments of the enemy computer seemed to be one of the highlights of the game, so I featured them prominently on the back.

I actually worked on the back side first.  I ended up not being crazy about the rainbow colors -- I wish I had only used blue and orange like I ended up doing on the front, because those colors are significant to the game.

My favorite part is the "surprise" at the bottom.  (The "smear" on the last word is intentional -- it's meant to mimic graffiti from the game.)

Thanks for looking!
