When I recently went to Michael’s Craft Store and picked up some Caron Baby Cakes, I knew right away what pattern I wanted to use with it. I always loved making the chevron aka ripple stitch, but never tried it out with any of the Caron Cakes. So, when I bought some Caron Baby Cakes, I had to try it using the Chevron stitch using single crochets.

Once I started using it, I knew I had to make the Chevron Purse. It creates the perfect texture to make sure nothing falls out.
