I ordered one of those big color map fabrics from Spoonflower, full of 3600 color chips and their RGB codes. So Cool!
I was stumped to figure out what to do with it. I thought about hanging it on the wall to have handy for reference, but I don’t have enough wall space in my creative studio for such a large piece. Not without rearranging, which I don’t feel like doing.
Then I decided to keep it simple and make my favorite thing as well as the most useful thing – a fun zippered bag.
I started out with the orange one since it’s the color of the year, but then I got carried away and picked a few other colors to try.
I made that teal one a little fancier with darts in the corners and piping.
Fun bags to make in anticipation of taking a color theory class this semester!

Great way to use those color maps! Love the teals especially! I wasn’t aware Spoonflower had such a thing…may need to take a look 😉 Hope you share some pointers with us from your color theory class.
I LOVE these, Terri! What a perfect use for that print!
Okay, this is brilliant! I would have had a hard time cutting that fabric up, but this is so great. I bet you wouldn’t have any trouble selling these in your Etsy shop!
I love this idea! I am so glad I can across your blog. I had no idea that spoonflower offered such a thing since I have only signed up with an account but haven’t submitted any of my designs & had them printed yet. I hope to be doing so soon though.
I am looking forward to learning more about your & your work. Have a great day!
Hi Terri! Those are SO cool! What a great idea!
what a cool project! very unique!
I love them! What a fun thing to do!
Great fabric Terri and the zippered pouches showcase the fabric perfectly!
Terri, these are the best ever pouches! I love colours and colour maps but often I think where I could enjoy them. Your idea is really great and I’m happy to see that there is colour maps on fabric! Wow that fabric could make millions of wonderful things!
Have a great week! x Teje
What a fun idea…I didn’t even know these were available…and you made them into the cutest bags!
I agree with Teje–these are amazing pouches!! I think I might NEED to own a yard of that fabric!
These are awesome! I love the fabric, and the bags are just the thing to make with them. Are they in your etsy shop?
Thanks Stephanie! They were quite fun to make. I have listed them in my shop yet, but hope to soon, so be sure to check back.
