When Missoni hit Target, chevron stripes were all the rage! I think it’s fair to say we’re obsessed. The crazy thing about the trend is that it’s hard to find a good Chevron stripe fabric. There are a few out there, but it’s hard to get the stripes in that just right width. I decided to try making my own. With a little Ikea striped fabric (which is dirt cheap) I practiced and practiced until I got the technique down.

Just keep repeating the process until you have enough panels to make the front of your pillow (or whatever you’re making). I made my panels about 5 inches wide. The pillows turned out so cute! I backed them with green flannel and added a zipper so they are washable.
