The colors are truer in that one, aside from the orange that looks yellow. IRL it's just a basic orange.

The colors of the purple and gray are perfect there, but the rest look weirdly pink.

So, anyway, I'm making dice bags. I bought these fabrics yesterday at Joann (all this fabric plus five spools of thread for under $10!) and I want to make a few more bags from them. There is enough of each fabric to make two, except the blue swirl sky one that is only enough for one, and the orange which is enough for like...I don't know...12? A ton. It was a remnant lol. I also have solid black although I'm not excited about using it cause my cat laid on it and now it's all fuzzy, and my lint roller is mysteriously missing Sad

Help me pair them! What do you think would look best? For reference, this is what the bags look like note how it's reversible from one fabric to the other.

Well, just my 2c - The grey would look really cool with a starry red inside, for that "revelation" effect. I'd pair the purple with the light blue, perhaps a grey with light blue as well. The orange would make a pretty good inside for the non-star red. The other half of purple could go with your last night sky. And then reds together? Cheesy
...I'm not a fan of orange, so it's difficult for me to answer many things with orange Cheesy

General guidelines:

combine a large/bold pattern with a smaller/simpler one (like the two blue fabrics)

combine fabrics with different amounts of the same colors (for instance, a blue pattern with orange stars, combined with one with lots of orange...)

combine colors opposite on the color wheel (orange and blue, red and green, yellow and purple)

combine a dull with a bright--the gray and the purple with either red
