Chevron Bag

Project Description

What are you most proud of? Finishing it. It turned out great. Several people wanted it so I had a drawing on FB for it. I had over 50 entries. It was fun giving it away. What advice would you give someone starting this project? Watch the entire class before starting a project. I did and it really helped me to design the bag and make fewer mistakes.

What you will need

  • Duck canvas
  • cotton (lining)
  • cotton rope (handles)
  • metal closure and feet.

To be new to sewing you did an excellent job... love, Love, LOVE your color choices! I'm jealous in the most flattering sense, lol. You have motivated me to stop procrastinating (being afraid to make mistakes), get up off my butt, and start creating my dream bag once and for all! Thank you eMOtionelle for sharing your pic and your story.
Sew Spirited answered:
Aww, thank you so much for such kind words. I hope you post what you make! Believe me, if I can do it, anyone can! I can't cut a straight line with a ruler and rotary cutter! :) LOL But I managed.
