chevron ruffled cushion






 cut t-shirt fabric into long strips
 then sew them into ruffles
because t-shirt fabric is stretchy it is really easy to make ruffles, you need to stretch the fabric out at the sides while pushing forward at the same time, this creates the perfect t-shirt fabric ruffles with out having to mess around pulling threads

 then you need to pin the ruffles on to the fabric in a chevron pattern, i used a drop cloth for the rest of the pillow
the use the sewing machine to stitch them on.
