I made few of these hexi bags. Of course I had to add a lining which forced me to change the order of things a bit and I had to add a stop stitch as the embroidery foot hit the zipper. Also because the zippers are cheap they do not like to unzip from the inside so i had to rip a few seams then turn open the zip and turn and stitch and turn again. I think it took me longer to type this out then to actually do it. Lol! thanks for looking. I pray all is well with you and yours. BTW That is chalkboard fabric on the one side.

I congratulate you for a difficult job well done! I wouldn't have the patience to make them.
Hugs, Lidia

I made as many as I could while I knew how to do it. Then it was easy. Thank you I love your compliment.

Thank you I kept the full bee and my daughter took the yellow and bee bag. Not quite matching. Lol! Thanks!

What a lovely collection of little purses. They look very versatile and as I have never heard of or seen chalkboard fabric you've done well. I just looked it up on the internet and realise you can write on it. Great idea, love Chris

I used a chalk pen. It does wipe off over time, so if I want it permanent I could use a paint pen. Thank you!

I figure it took me so much time to figure out the pattern I might as well make as many as I could while I had it in my head. I also think it is a good use of materials including the lobster clasp. I am a piecemaker and I can organize with these. Thank you Hugs!

I like doing the small stuff. I try to make the bee vinyl stretch as I have only 3 sheets. Thank you
