Chevron Pillow Covers Tutorial

I Really like the chevron pattern.  I've been trying to find something to make with it. 

I downloaded my pattern from google and traced it onto freezer paper.  I cut it out with an Exacto knife, and ironed it onto my material. 

I used gray acrylic paint on my fabric, and applied it with a foam brush.  I let it dry and then carefully peeled it off so I could do the other pillow. 

I placed a cloth over top the fabric and ironed it for a few seconds to make sure the paint stays when I wash it.  I sewed them up and viola!

I really like how these turned out, and they really add to my living room. 

Here is one of my other painted pillows
I saw it on The Nest and thought I'd make my own.  What design would you copy?
