Flex Frame Pouches

I don't have too many memories from my childhood, but I do remember  some vinyl flex frame pouches.  Usually used for keeping coins.
I was in love when I saw this little pouch made by Leila  and I had to make a  few. Leila wrote even a tutorial,  she pieced hexagons for her pouch - thank you for the inspiration! 

Here are mine - 3 sisters - 3 pouches!

The frame measures 3.5".  First I made the smallest one, then I thought that more space is better and I changed the measurements.  But the smallest one is the cutest! 

I don't know how are other frames,  but I need muscles to open mine!
If you need a gift for yesterday :), this is the one! A few scraps, a few stitches -  it can be done in 15-20 minutes!And it really worth the effort to piece a beautiful outer piece.

Have a great weekend,

I am linking to Finish it up Friday.
