Just a quick post before I run off to make nachos and margaritas! I finally got to work with Chevrons! I have been meaning to make myself a new Notepad organizer. I’ve been using my original prototype – not even the one I used to take the pattern photos, but one I made before that one. I also wanted to make the larger one this time too. So, I opted to cut into the Riley Blake Chevrons I ordered a couple weeks ago. (Cutting into fabric is a HUGE issue for me, I never want to use the “good” stuff.)
I wanted to post this in case you need a quick Mother’s Day gift idea. They sew up super quick, both because they are flat and because there is no hand sewing. The small one can even be made from a single fat quarter. These would also be awesome end of the year teacher gifts! The pattern has two sizes and you can find it right here.
Now, if I’d thought ahead I would have cut into the fabric differently to keep the pattern going all the same way. It’s just for me so I don’t really care, but I’ll think about that harder next time!
