I got about a yard of some striped fabric from the clearance section of a fabric store for about $1.50. This was my very first time using a zipper, and to make matters more difficult I got a metal one... yep. It was a separating double-zipper pull one (y'know, the kind that can zip up from the bottom and zip down from the top). To make the chevron I had to cut out the stripes diagonally. The whole bag took me about an hour and a half. It shouldn't have. But I was distracted, the bag needed to be pieced together perfectly, and the zipper was metal and had to be hacked at with wire cutters and safety scissors. So yeah. I didn't use a zipper foot because I don't have one, but it was surprisingly easy. This will either be used for a wallet or a pencil case. Smiley

It looks very smart. I love the way you've created chevrons.

Look twice, buy once. Nooooo
Look twice, decide I can make one instead.

I like it too.  It could be used as a small clutch purse too

This is so cute and looks super simple (I'm a total novice sewer) -- I'll definitely have to give this one a go!  Thanks for sharing!

You're very brave to conquer the zipper!  And I love how the chevrons came out.
