Chevron Pillow Cover

I have had an infatuation with the simplicity of the chevron design since first seeing this photo from Jess at make Under My Life

She has a tutorial on how she made these canvases, and I adjusted them to substitute a 20x20 inch piece of muslin instead. I used my current favorite accent color, burnt orange ( perfect for Fall, right?) and got to painting my fabric with fabric paint.

[My chevron pillow and it's striped partner]

A simple envelope back to my pillow with muslin, and I have a new pillow cover, just the way I wanted it. My motto is becoming..."Can't find it? Make it."

The best part?

It was cheap!

The Cost breakdown: $1.49/yd of muslin + fabric paint $1.99= A new pillow cover for under $4!
