Default chenille white tiger

I've had a chenille cutter tool sitting on my sewing desk for a long time, and never used it. For some reason, I got inspired to try it, and here's what I came up with. My 14-year old grandson has always loved cats, and I found this beautiful panel of a white tiger, so I will give this to him. I have very mixed emotions about this technique: I got extremely bored sewing all the parallel lines -- by the time I finished I was thinking "I'm never doing another one of these!". Then, using the tool to make all the slices was really fun! And the finished product is pretty cool.

That is really neat. I'm not sure I would have the patience for a project of that size....

That's what that little tool is used for. I've seen them at thrift shops but didn't know what it was so I passed it up. Cook cat but looks too intensive for me. However, you really did an outstanding job on this and your grandson will be thrilled. (we love making those grandkids happy.).

Oh my gosh! That is fantastic! I've seen chenille projects in magazines, but this is so far beyond those! What a special gift!

A great Grandson quilt. It wouldn't be for me to do, I don't have enough patience. You did a great job.

What a beautiful project...I have not seen an actual chenille finish but yours is awesome. I’m not sure I would have the patience.

Great finish- love the way you did more than one direction on the chenille.

I’ve wondered how those tools work, thanks for including a pic showing it in use.
