A playful take on the chevron trend that's perfect for those tiny scraps!
A different take on chevron, this short and sweet project is a great way to make use of leftover scraps! In this tutorial I use small bits of leather, but paper and fabric work equally as well. These are cheerful, pretty and so quick to make! Instructions are included for suspending from a chain or piece of embroidery thread, so choose which finish looks best to you:)
