Ever heard if these? Well maybe you would know it better as Chevron! Up until recently I thought that was a gas station!
It's far from a gas station though. It is a design element that is popping up (and down and up again) everywhere!
Yes, it is a trend, I read, but it also is a pattern that has actually been around for a long time, I guess. So even though it's popularity my wane, it will still be around.
I don't know about you, but I really love it. I have a skirt that I LOVE.
But even before I got the skirt, it was showing up in my house.
A few months ago I decided to try to update the curtains in our family room. They are just plain linen. I love linen! Everyone may not though. My little granddaughter called them "sheets"! Maybe that's what caused me to think they needed a little update.
I didn't want to spend a lot of money on new curtains, but I was drawn to some of the patterns. I was seeing in curtain fabrics such as stripes, ikat, and other patterns.
Anyway I started looking for something.........., I really didn't know what.........but I knew that I would know it when I saw it........something that I could attach.......possibly sew to the edge of my linen curtains to revive them a little.
Well I was at Hobby Lobby and was actually looking at fabric. I saw several things that I thought would work, but not really anything that "jumped out" at me. You all know what I mean, I'm sure! All the time I'm dreading having to actually get out the sewing machine too!
Sooooooo, I just kept browsing. I could browse in that store all day, couldn't you? Then......I saw it:
BURLAP WITH CHEVRON PATTERN
Yay!!!! Two of my favorites!
Perfect for my curtain up......just the right width.......the taupe/gray/cream color combination.....and the price! I told you I would know it when I saw it!
So I bought two ( a total of $18.00 - not 50 percent off today ). I really just guessed at how many it would take.
But, look at the way it worked out! I had just the exact amount. The curtains are 9 feet, so I guess there are 18 feet in one roll. I have four curtains, and used two.
I simply cut the roll in half and it was the perfect size for the curtain
Anyway, here they are on the windows. I really like how they turned out..
