Chevron Handbag - Finished!

There is nothing like a deadline to help light a fire under my "you know what" : )

I received a F8 bundle of Riley Blake fabric for a quilt challenge sponsored by the Modern Quilt Guild.   I was having a hard time coming up with an idea, but then, one week before it's due date I sketched up a handbag.

I love the way it turned out!  I added leather handles and a self fabric covered button with the cute telephone motif and a self fabric loop closure!  The telephone fabric is Riley Blake Doohikey designs which came from my stash.  It works so well with the Riley Blake Challenge bundle and  is such a fun fabric - perfect for fussy cutting!

The other side is a different color chevron - yellow and turquoise- since I ran out of the orange and grey fabric.  I think it is fun that each side has its own personality!

Have a lovely day!


  1. Lovely bag, a deadline well met I'd say :)

  2. What a sweet bag! I love the shape!

  3. I just found your blog after seeing your adorable paper pieced apron pattern at Stitchery Dickory Dock. I love your blog and hopefully I will be a fan of paper piecing some day soon. Your bag is awesome - can't go wrong with chevrons!


Thanks for stopping by!
I love to read your comments - they make my day!!
