Homemade Chevron Pattern - Tissue Box Cover

I am hooked on anything Chevron these days. I love the clean pattern and the clean sharp lines (plus if you know me anything black and white as well.) As much as I love this pattern, I am not going buy chevron material when I can make it myself!! The possibilities are endless on the places I could use this Chevron pattern material and my most recent creation is this great tissue box cover for my Powder Room. I LOVE IT!!

I found directions on Made on how to make regular stripe material (left over from my daughter’s valance)

into Chevron pattern material. I am showing you’re the backside so you can see the configuration.

Then I found a great tutorial for a tissue box cover here. I mean why reinvent the wheel? No reason to show you a tutorial when someone was gracious enough to write them out already?!?!

I am just taking two great ideas and combining them to work for me…and maybe inspire you!

How pretty and graphic, but that sounds a little complicated for a newbie sewer like me. I know mine would somehow end up all wonky!

Hope you make it on OMTWI! You would be great!
I am liking all the chevron patterns I see everywhere!

Hi - Thanks for commenting on my blog! I wish that I had your talent. I love sweing but I am not that good at it - probably no patience. I love, love the chevron pattern also. It's classic but modern at the same time.

I will subscribe to your blog. Keep up the beautiful work!
