    I just took a stitch at every outside point and the inside corner where two hexes meet to secure it to the bag. I suppose hot glue might work also.

    Love your bag; very creative and eye-catching. The little bow adds just that "special touch" that is needed where you have it. A good idea for a challenge!Mariah

    Love your bag, a tutorial of the origami flowers would be nice. I vote for big buttons where you have the bow.

    Still, it feels like it needs a little something more. Any suggestions?

    That's a good idea to cover up commercial advertising and make something very attractive and useful. I found a u-tube tutorial that's easy to follow. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FNfVUR9-RRo

    I absolutely love the idea and your work. I would skip the bow and put a darker pink border around the work. Perhaps that would make it feel more finished.

    How did you attach the work to the bag?
