It’s All About the Zig Zags!

February 21, 2012 in Projects

Well, lately I have been drooling over chevron and zig-zag sewing projects, quilts, and fabrics so I thought I would share a few of the items that are currently on my DIY to-do list and of course I made sure they hall had tutorials!

 

1. ModKid Zig Zag Quilt - first of all, she uses a serger to construct this quilt, which is awesome! But, you can also certainly make it with a sewing machine as well. (click the pic to open the tutorial pdf)

2.  Ombre Painted Chevron Curtains from Remodel-Aholic- Okay, so this is cheating a little since it is not exactly a sewing tutorial, BUT we craft too right? And say you sewed these curtains yourself a long time ago and don’t need those instructions right? Right! (click the pic to open the tutorial page)

3. Chevron Clutch Tutorial + Pattern from See Kate Sew- So this is the cutest thing ever. It can be a diaper clutch for your mom friends or a simple cute pouch for those days when an entire purse is unnecessary. Also, this would be very cute (an easy!!) as a gift to your bridesmaids filled with lip balm and tiny hairspray and gum and stuff! (click the pic to open the tutorial page)

 Do you know of any great chevron-ish tutorials?

If so, please link to them in the comments section so I can continue to cover everything in my life with chevron!
