I've been forever planning to try my hand at making faux chenille, but the process requires a clothes dryer, and we only very recently adquired one, so finally I could do it.
The process starts of course with the layering of fabrics, and since they were thin fabrics, I over did it and ended up with eighteen layers! Half of that would had been more than enough.
Then stitching the whole package on the diagonal en cutting the layers between the stitches.
That is a lot of work, but I couldn't find electric scissors in our little town.
Anyhow, my new chenille fabric together with some recycled leather are in the process of becoming a bag, I'll name it the fordite bag.
