Our office sofa was already bright red, but I figured it could use some more color on a new pillow. So with a little bit of work and some fabric paint, this chevron pillow was born. Add to that a color fade with 5 shades. Why not?

Step 1: Start the pillow case

These pillows are made the same way as the Drop Cloth Pillows I also made. Start with a washed and ironed drop cloth and cut out a 19" x 37" rectangle. Be careful to make sure it's an even rectangle. I'm not super familiar with cutting fabric and this stuff just moves all over the place.
<p>Awesome! It is perfect i love chevron so much.</p>
thx so much
Nice pillow. Pink is a very manly color.
I'm comfortable with it. Well, really I was making it and just thought "hey! I'll go from burgundy to light burgundy!" <br /> <br />And didn't realize until later, like a fool, that light burgundy = pink. But it was fine and I stuck with it anyway instead of adding a bit more burgundy.
My son adores pink, too. :)
Looks nice!
AWEsome! I will be coming back because I have been wanting to make something in the chevron design! Thanks for sharing! Sunshiine
