Upcycled Chevron Purse
I made this little bag using the Buttercup Bag Tutorial at Made By Rae.
I haven’t purchased any of her patterns yet, but I know if I had a serger I would have to try the Washi Dress.
Also, if her Flashback Tee pattern came in an adult size, I would totally try making it.
But anyway, this bag was easy to make. I used a small scrap of chevron fabric I had left over from making the bias tape for my refashioned skirt for the front. I also made some piping! For the back, I used some leftover linen fabric from the refashioned skirt.
And for the lining, I used some fabric left from a pair of my husband’s khakis.
It is pretty small; my wallet may not fit, but for church or a short outing it will be cute to carry.
