For the LOVE of CHEVRON: a feature and giveaway!


Oh, chevron.

It's one of my favorite patterns, ranking among argyle, houndstooth, and damask.

It's taking over our house, slowly, at least.

To me, chevron is a great balance print. It's not as plain as stripes, but it's not girly like flowers. For that reason, it seems, my husband hasn't complained too much about me sprinkling it throughout our home. Makes fun of me occasionally, but whatever.

Fortunately, one if my dearest friends is also a bit chevron obsessed and has been very helpful and enables the infiltration.

Jenn, owner and creator if Butterfly Designs, is one if the biggest sources of chevron in my home. Photos will be toward the end of this post as I am writing from my phone. (For the record, she has many non-chevron things as well...)

When Collin was born, she created him a one-of-a-kind chevron rag quilt. I love it! Collin loves it too, he's very tactile.

Collin has a chevron bib from Butterfly Designs.

He has two pairs of chevron shoes from Butterfly Designs (one was a custom pair from fabric I supplied that was leftover from my Christmas stockings).

I have a chevron Andi apron from Butterfly Designs, and I gave one to my friend Desi for her birthday. (We have five aprons from her total in this house.)

I've also added a bit of chevron on my own! The aforementioned Christmas stockings that I made are a gray chevron and aqua design.

I made myself a cute chevron pin cushion for my sewing projects!

And, recently with the undertaking if Spenk & Ollie Creations, Collin has gained a pair of chevron leggings!

Oh! And I ordered special fabric so the boys have a gray chevron and a chartreuse chevron Mud Butt Cloth Diaper.

And to be giveaway festive, I just did my nails in chevron!


You should be jealous. But only slightly.

To celebrate chevron, Jenn and I have teamed up for a chevron inspired giveaway.

There will be two winners! One will choose a pair of Butterfly Designs chevron baby shoes (in either gray/white, black/white, navy/white, or pink/white). If you don't have a baby, they make FANTASTIC baby gifts! Or, if you have an older girl or know one who plays with dolls, the 0-3 size might just fit doll feet! They're so seriously fantastic. They stay on SO WELL. Collin hasn't been able to get them off his feet once, yet they don't bother him at all! There is a picture of him below in his black and white chevron shoes with solid black legging from Spenk & Ollie Creations, taken by Something Clicked Photography.

The second prize will be a pair if black and white Spenk & Ollie leggings! They're so cute! And they fit a huge range of leg sizes. They're a bit Bunche on Collin, who is nearly 5 months old. They go up to Spencer's thigh. He is two now, and over three feet tall! And, if you're into leg warmers as an adult, they nearly reach my knee!
