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 mentioned making bags last month, and am just now getting around to showing them to you.
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.
All this Bag Sewing is part of my 4R's Bucket List, and I am happy to say that it has made an impact on Repurposing Quilt Blocks, Recycling Vintage Linens, Quilts and Batting, Renewing a Bag Pattern and Reselling. Yep, they are selling and special orders are welcome.
Best of all, I am having fun being back on my sewing machine.
I've even used the Zig Zag Stitch a time or two.
How about you...do you Zig Zag?
