Firstly, let me apologise for the space between blogs. I am in the middle of relocating and it’s been beyond busy. You can read about that here. Don’t worry though, everything will stay the same if not get better on Cheapnchic.net. We’ll be upping the great content and also reveal some amazing plans that I hope will come to fruition.
Chevron has been on the decor scene for some time and I devised this DIY some months ago and am only now getting time to post it.
I found this amazing fabric in Satwa and thought that cushions inspired by the image above would be cool.
For this project, you will need a sewing machine, chevron fabric (non-stretch), fabric scissors, stuffing, fabric pins and needle and thread.
Begin by cutting a pattern from an existing cushion cover onto brown paper, pin it and cut around it:
From here lay the square onto the fabric for the second half. To the best of your ability (this can be time consuming), match up the zig zag pattern:
Cut around the second piece and pin them together:
Stitch the cushion together on all seams leaving a small 5-8cm part of the final seam un sewn:
From here stuff the cushion:
Turn the seam allowance in on this final gap in and pin together then hand stitch:
This is the final product, I shot it here with my applique cushion project in the centre:
