Hi all! My name is Shannon and I blog over at Sewing Barefoot, a blog filled with diy tutorials, design ideas and fun projects to tackle in your free time. I'm a full time interior designer who loves anything crafty and creative. My husband and I can usually be found with a can of spray paint in hand or searching for our next project in a local antique store. We love bringing new life to items that seem to have been forgotten and enjoy filling our home with one-of-a-kind "treasures." We are currently working on restoring a mid-century modern dining table and chairs.
I am thrilled to be sharing my chevron pillow tutorial with you today... I hope you enjoy it!
*** NOTE: I had a bunch of old pillows on hand, so I made my cover to fit a 16" pillow form ***
 I really didn't know what would be the best size block to make, so I decided that a 3" block sounded good. To get a 3" block (using 1/4" seam allowance) I cut 1 3/4" strips of both fabrics. I then sewed the 2 fabrics together to get long strips. I then pressed my seems flat.
 Once I had about 7 or 8 strips sewed, I started cutting them into the 3" blocks. As I cut them, I laid them out into my chevron pattern. I did this by turning each square about a quarter turn from the ones adjacent to it.
