Rainbow Shooting Star - Free Pattern

I shared with my Facebook fans a photo hint to this project. How many of you figured it out? The colors are pretty obvious to me! RAINBOW!


But not just any rainbow, a rainbow shooting star! 


 
There were two reasons I came up with this pattern. First, I wanted a cool pattern to celebrate St. Patrick's Day coming up next week. Second, if you ask my kid what his favorite color is, he'll say "ALL OF THEM!" You can use this applique on any project: scarves, bags, dĂ©cor.. anything!
 

I hope you enjoy the pattern!
