The Tasty Little Chevron Bag is the perfect little evening bag – it’s got sparkle, it’s right on trend, and it’s small enough to make for that last minute party invite! And the ones I’m making are going to be extra tasty – they’re getting filled with bags of handmade goodies for my kids’ teachers!

This weekend I’m making a kitchen full of tasty treats for coworkers, teachers, and family. For the teachers, the Tasty Little Chevron Bags will get stuffed with treats, and decorated with a crocheted ornament! This year I’m making the Cedar Rapids Snowflake pattern. Add an ornament hook, and here’s what they look like together:
