    I have been surfing and found some cool chenille hot pads that you can make with an Olfa Chenille cutter. I was wondering who else makes chenille projects?

    I make chenille projects, but I re purpose vintage chenille bedspreads to give them a second life :o)
    And I never cut up a "good bedspread"!

    Very good questions, I will be happy to hear any replies. I have been looking at chenille wondering the same thing.

    I made a throw rug with the chenille method. I found it takes lots of fabric, time and thread. The more it was washed the better it looked. I used the chenille cutter and it worked great. When I get some time I want to make some sets for my bathroom.

    I made a faux chenille jacket. I sewed each pattern piece separate and then cut the chenille and then cut the jacket pieces out and sewed the jacket together.

    I don't like flannel so I used 4 layers of cotton and cut the top three layers.
