You can get the whole universe in this little bag...

Maybe not really... a good chunk of the solar system is on this bag though! I made it for a Mad Scientists of Etsy team challenge. The challenge was to make a tribute to Nicholas Copernicus. Copernicus was famous for showing scientifically that the sun, not the earth, was the center of the universe.

I handpainted the sun with fabric paints. The reverse side of the bag is quilted with the name "Nicolaus Copernicus". There is a triple pocket inside and a magnetic snap holds the whole thing together!

This was my first attempt at fabric painting. I'm really pleased with the results! Mr. Forrest Brandon (my Jr. High art teacher) would be proud!
