Hello Bandwagon

Can I jump on?

I was kind of overwhelmed by all of the chevron patterns taking over. And theeennnn I joined the crowd. Way to be original Susan - not. Oh well, I think I should get bonus points for construction even if a million fifty other people made chevron projects this week.

I started with some extra placemats and the vintage fabric I won from Country Chic Cottage a couple weeks ago.
Since I'm boring I like making clutches, I decided to make another one. After a little creative cutting and piecing and I had the outside.
Lucky for me, the fabric was already interfaced! I assembled the clutch and then thought it needed a little something extra on the front so I added a ruffle. I hand stitched it on since the clutch was already finished and I didn't want the seam to show on the lining.

So the moral of this story is - if life gives you stripes, you can make chevrons. Also, in this case the lemons were free so I paid $0 for my new clutch!
