Love affair with Chevron DIY

I just can’t get enough of the chevron Stripe! Don’t you just love it?? For sure I am a stripes girl, and chevron is just that- a big bold fun stripe. There are so many great chevron DIY’s out there. Here are a few I gathered up. 20130923-150701.jpg

This all ties in because the other day I happened to pop into Avenue Fabric Studio on Oak Bay Avenue. I have never been to this Fabric Store before, this place is SO charming! They have a small selection of really GREAT fabric with super modern prints. Both of the ladies I spoke to were so lovely and helpful. I fell in love with there Mississippi Cotton Grey and White Chevron fabric. I couldn’t stop thinking about it, so I decided to make curtains for Hank’s room. When I went back to buy the fabric one of the kind ladies sketched out my design for me to help determine the amount of fabric I would need and gave me some pointers that really helped my curtains look great (as opposed to looking like a pile of garbage the way most things I sew turn out).  As I mentioned, this store is fantastic.

Hank’s new curtain is finished and up and looks great. Now I am dreaming of Chevron stairs.

Attached are some pic’s of the Avenue Fabric Studio and my new curtain.

If you are in Oak Bay pop in and check out this shop- it is really worth it. 108- 1841 Oak Bay Avenue. They also offer workshops for adults and children. Do you think I could get Hudson into sewing???
