Color Maps

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!
