With these eye-popping hues, your projects are gonna be Insta-worthy masterpieces! They are so easy to match up with many other of her fabric collections too. I love that there are lots of coordinating pieces in various colours, meaning you can pick one or two of your favourite colours from the rainbow, match it up with one the feature fabric from this collections and you can add your own touch to the project.

Stripe fabric in Rainbow Colours

To top it all up, my favourite from this collection has to be the stripes! And they come in white and black background. This fabric is a celebration of all things happy, making it the perfect choice for creating whimsical and playful projects. Oh, and here’s a little secret  – it’s an ideal fabric for binding your quilts and projects too! I just love stripe as binding. It just takes the project to another level. Framing the whole thing in such a whimsical way.

“Make” Project Bags

If you’re like me, you know that having the right project bag is a game-changer. I use my project bags to store quilt kits and cross stitch work in progress and when I saw this collection, I knew that I wanted to make a few project bags from it! I took the advantage of fussy cutting the fabrics and using the coordinating collections as the inner.

Can you see how that rainbow stripes and measuring tape is so fussy-cutting friendly? I could not resist!

Project Bag Pattern:

I am using the “By Annie Project Bags Pattern” in medium size. Not only are they versatile and spacious, but they also allow you to showcase the beauty of “Make” fabrics through the vinyl front. Just imagine peering into your project bag and seeing a breathtaking display of colors that’s sure to spark joy and inspiration! Highly recommend the pattern, easy to read and you can add on video tutorial if you need more help. 

By Annie Bag Soft and Stable Stabilizer is the best to use to make sturdy bags and I’m glad I used it for this project. I love how it hold the shape of the bag.

Now, for the final touch of flair – the colorful stripe fabric for binding! Here’s where the magic really happens. I love how it brings the bag together! Isn’t the perfect binding fabric??

I also tested out a label on the side. quite big for the project bag, but surely cute!

 For this one, I thought the tiny scissor zipper pull is perfect for this bag! This one is out of stock, but you can find other sewing themed zipper pulls HERE>.

Overall, it was sooo much fun making these project bags. The beautiful fabrics was surely the reason why too!
