Rainbow Love

Yesterday I freaked out over this page from a 1980 Flash comic. Gorgeous. Maybe you can do something crafty with it?

I especially love this era of Flash because the superhero's name is the same as my husband. Not "Flash" but "Barry," hee hee.

A delish rainbow treasury including my recycled paint sample coasters by rockpilewest.

At night I have been working on a rainbow granny square afghan. My first!

More rainbow themed goodness from Etsy Treasuries here.

I also have stuff tagged "rainbow" in my shop:

Fortune Cookie Zip Pouch

If you know me, you know I get my best ideas in the middle of the night when I can't sleep. Today, the latest idea came to me in the form of a Facebook post by Present and Correct. They linked to this super cool fortune cookie coin purse on Diana Eng.

I decided to try one of my own!

This is rather impractical as a good coin purse, but it is still cute.

I didn't have a little sew on snap, so I had to improvise with a hook and eye.

I Googled for a tutorial, but there was none such thing out there! So I looked at tutorials on how to make fortune cookies and just fiddled around to make the zipper work. The zipper is tricky, but felt is pretty forgiving. I plan to try again with a snap and the benefit of some experience.
