A little craft therapy...{Chevron} Purse

Hi Crafters,

I am in the final stages of submitting my National Board Certification project. I took my written test yesterday and hope to submit my portfolios this week.  My test location had a Hobby Lobby close by so my co-worker and craft buddy and I stopped by after we finished our test.  I had been searching for chevron fabric for a few months and hadn't had much luck with my quest. I should have had a pattern ready to go but I had been a bit preoccupied so I just got 1 yard and that was plenty.  I already had the lining fabric that I got when our Joann's relocated for a song. I found this Tutorial on  Pinterest and it led me to crafter. I knew this was going to be perfect! I have had so little time to craft on the weekends recently I decided to take the afternoon to make the purse.

I followed the tutorial pretty closely.  I added 2 pockets inside for my phone and keys.  I opted to go for 1 strap instead of 2. I used the 2nd strap to make the rose, I just folded it in half again and rolled it up using hot glue to keep it together.  
I'm happy with the way it came out. It took most of the afternoon but I was glad to have the time to work on it.

Thanks for stopping by...
Happy Crafting,
