Marimekko Bags

Can you believe more zipper bags? Is this what they call OCD? After my journal failure I guess I'm sticking to something I know. I'm getting pretty good at these zippers. 

I found this Marimekko fabric and even though it is a thicker, home dec fabric I knew I would figure out something to make with it. These are big and sturdy measuring 10"x11". I didn't have two dark purple zippers but the lighter one works. That blue/purple color is very different. Not like anything I have on my shelves.

The lime circles are different, so unless you waste lots of fabric they don't match up.

These were going to be a matching set to be sold but I put the zippers in backwards so now I have a matching set! Yes, they are pink with lime bees and lime zippers. The large one is 7"x10" and the small one is 5"x7".

It was a colorful day.

The Marimekko is fantastic because it must be matched. I think the matching is worth the waste, but if anyone could figure out a way to make it wonderful without matching, you could, and I'm sure you will.
