Crazy For Chenille
Today, I'm presenting to you a guide on how to make your own chenille fabric. It's an e-book written by one of our Quilting Board regulars Andrea Clancey (user name Quilting Aggi). I'm sure you've seen her posts on the board.
The e-book is called Crazy For Chenille.
Aside from explaining how to make chenille, Andrea also covers three projects. Two types of pillows and a travel/makeup bag.
Here are some pictures straight from the e-book to show you what it's all about.
First, she explains how to take several different fabrics like these:
And turn them into chenille fabric like this:
Here is a zoomed-in look at the work-in-progress chenille. Just look at that texture!
Once you master the technique, you'll be able to make all kinds of items with chenille. Anything from lap quilts to full-size throws to tote bags.
After explaining how to make chenille, Andrea covers sample projects you can complete.
Regular chenille pillows, like these:

And finally, travel or makeup bags, like this one:
She explains everything with easy-to-follow steps.

What is Chenille?
Chenille is textured fabric that can be used to make quilts, cushions, bags, pillows, garments and plenty of other projects.
You can order it pre-made, but store-bought chenille costs a lot and is usually too restrictive on the color choices.
If you learn how to make your own chenille fabric, you'll be able to make cushions, bags, quilts, garments and other home decor items without having to buy expensive pre-made chenille for each item you make. Over time, it really adds up because you can use any plain fabric for chenille, yet your finished items look like they cost a bundle.
Chenille is a great exciting way to add some spunk to your quilted treasures. The technique is easy and fun for both the beginner to the advanced sewer. Chenille is a different approach to the traditional style of quilting.
Additionally, if you make quilts for sale, you could charge a lot more if your quilts are made with chenille simply because they would have a much more exclusive and expensive look.
And if you make them as gifts, then your quilts and other items would have an appearance of being much more exquisite. Your friends and loved ones would truly treasure your creations.
Making your own chenille fabric is easier than most people think. And there are no special machine attachments you will need to make chenille. As long as you have a sewing machine that can run a straight stitch and you have a quilting foot, you can make chenille!
Imagine how much it would cost to buy pre-made chenille fabric with rich texture like this:
And yet, the pillow your see on the picture above was made at home from plain fabrics. So you'll be able to make items like that right in your sewing room!
Here is a rundown of reasons why you should learn to make chenille:
• It's fun to make.
• It looks beautiful when using to embellish projects.
• You can use it in quilts, bags, garments, home decor such as cushions, table runners/toppers.
• You can also applique it into projects.
• You can cut up chenille fabrics into strips to insert into your projects.
• Chenille looks adorable in children's clothing and accessories such as purses and hats.
And here are some benefits of using chenille in your projects:
• Adds a beautiful and expensive look to your home decor without breaking the bank.
• A good way to use up tired and worn fabrics to give them a new look on life.
• Chenille cushions (for example) make fun, easy and quick Christmas gifts that look like you spent a lot of money for. You can make unique gifts for any occasion.
• Items made with chenille provide comfort and style that simply can't be matched by plain fabrics.
• By making your own chenille, you can choose the fabric shades and color combinations to suit your taste, rather than purchasing chenille commercially, which can be expensive and limited in variety.
• Chenille color combinations are limitless. You can pick any fabrics and combine them to make unique chenille. There would be no other like that one in the world.
• Imagine the look on the faces of your friends and family when they see your first chenille project! They won't be able to believe you made that!
