What exactly is a chevron, you ask??A single chevron is a V shape made with a line or a stripe,?similar to the chevron insignia patches worn on the sleeves of military uniforms to indicate rank or length of service.?Rows of?repeated chevrons can create a zigzag pattern (although there is some discussion about zigzag patterns vs. chevrons, like Suzannah’;s?post hereaccent pillow case baby decorative, and Just Jingle’;s rant here).

No matter what you choose to call them, chevrons OR zigzags, these repeating patterns have been turning up in all kinds of sewing projects lately?– and I think I’;ve got the fever! The only prescription –?you guessed it, is more chevrons!

This week we'd like to share with you some of the fabulous master bedroom interior design trends and ideas to give you something to ponder over and use within your own home.

It’s a cruel fact of life: Your belly is going to expand but the waistband of your pants won't. In the first trimester you are going to rapidly gain baby weight and that can lead to all kinds of problems. This is where belly bands can help, so read on to find out what the best belly band is!

I have always loved how cute union suits are on little people so when I found this striped fabric, I knew that I had to give it a try. Thank goodness I did because this might have been my favorite project yet! It helps that my boys like them as much as I do!
