It's been around for ages and once the Zig Zag stitch came out on sewing machines, Zig Zag became a universal term. How do you say it in Spanish, German, Swedish etc? Zig Zag!!!
What about Chevron? In Texas, it's where you fill up your gas tank. Yes, I know it has origins in ancient heraldry, and does appear on several of my Ancestors Coat of Arms.
Aren't the colors fantastic? The fabric weight is 'Duck' or light weight canvas. Perfect for bags. Oh, and these are two of my latest bag designs.
I have TWO styles in this bag. This one which functions as a purse with a padded phone pocket embedded in the front panel. It is designed for easy access to your cell phone.
A loop for hooking your keys hangs from the interior strap on the same side as the phone pocket. The inside has two 'Triangle Pockets' for separating your wallet and small make-up bag.
No more digging to the bottom or dumping everything out to find your stuff.
How about you...do you Zig Zag?
It's Zig Zag for me and I really loved those bags Sue. Congrats on reaching the end of the Challenge - YAY! for us! I just have my wrap up post on Monday next week and my first e-book that I'm planning and then it's done and dusted for another year.ReplyDelete

Well done Sue on zig-zagging your way through ... cheers HilaryReplyDelete
It's definitely a zigzag. Chevrons are finite, like the tip of an arrow. Very pretty!ReplyDelete
I think of the zig zag as a stitch and chevron as a pattern, not to mention rikrak which is also the same type of shape. Those bags are wonderful! What a simple but useful pattern! Congrats on finishing the Challenge!ReplyDelete
