Chevron Wristlet

I just completed the Chevron Wristlet Tutorial from Made by Rae. I LOVE chevron and never thought to make it myself out of striped fabric before. I would love to use this technique to make some pillows sometime.  ...If only I needed more pillows!

I was originally going to use an old pillowcase as the lining, but found some leftover yellow fabric and thought the contrast of the bright yellow would look better.

 Since the fabric for the Chevron was knit, I added interfacing to prevent it from stretching out of shape and to give the wristlet a little more structure.

Robes in Action

My kids have been getting great use out of those robes I made using Dana's pattern. They put them on after every bath and were used on our last vacation to my parent's cabin. So far the robes are holding up very well.
