Aqua Pleated Chevron Bag

I have had several requests for chevron bags. I’d stopped making them for awhile just to give myself a break and make something different. But a few friends have wanted to order them. So I have taken some custom orders and then am in the process of making a few extras to sell.

I just finished this new bag with this new fabric combination. The outer fabric is a Riley Blake chevron and I used ric rac trim on the pleated side of the bag.

The lining fabric is a Michael Miller print with bikes. And I really like bike-theme projects. So I couldn’t resist purchasing this fabric. And it matches the aqua color of the chevron fabric perfectly.

Just to remind you about other bike-theme projects I have done:bike-theme projects

The interior of the bag features two pockets. One is a divided pocket (lip gloss? cell phone? iPod?) And the other is a slightly deeper pocket, not divided.

The strap is slightly shorter than on my original design, not everyone is as tall as me. The strap for this print measures 37” in length. Also, these bags can be machine washed in cold water, line dried, and then pressed with a steam iron to get them back to pristine condition.

    1. I've kind of got it down to assembly-line style...cut out a bunch, do a few of the pieces (set it aside for a few days), then add the snaps, cut the interfacing and get the idea. But I get tired of making them after awhile!

  4. This looks so cute! I love the little details of the ric rack trim and the bike lining. Very fun! Thanks for sharing this week on Project Inspire{d}!
