Free Chenille Instructions
To make your own chenille, layer 4 to 8 layers of fabric (Flannel or loosely woven cotton works best) with the brightest and boldest fabric on top. Do not prewash.
Mark a diagonal line on the bias crossing the center of this piece. Now pin baste, using the diagonal line as a guide.
Using your walking foot, stitch all layers along that line, then stitch 1/4" to 5/8" on either side (alternating sides as you go) until the entire piece is quilted.
Use the Olfa Chenelle Cutter, and cut between the lines. Square it up if necessary. Bind the edges.
To make the chenille bloom once it has been cut, throw it in the washer then the dryer. (Lint alert!)
