    Faux chenille throw

    I have made four of these now and gifted all of them. I discovered it's important to get a large enough print so the cutting doesn't muddle the design. This one is my favorite.

    wow that is lovely
    Besides my family, my pets are the most important things to me. I have had birds, a dog or cats since I was about 8 years old. The cruelest thing you can do to me is take my animals away.

    That is really beautiful. I recently longarmed a quilt for a friend using fabric from that line. How many layers of fabric did you use for the chenille?

    So very pretty. Every time I see poppies I think of the poem.... " In Flanders Field the poppies blow between the crosses row by row"......... even more meaningful with Veterans Day being this week. Thanks for the photo and the reminder.

    5 layers for each throw. Each throw is width of fabric and about 50 inches long. They were all for adults. They make up very quickly.

    turned out great
    put off till tomorrow what you can do today, and if you procrastinate long enough, you may never have to do it.

    Is this the TOP? This is beautiful! How far apart are your stitching rows? And did you use flannel for the insides? This is real pretty. I can't stop opening the picture and peeking. Oh and is this washed or will it ruffle when its washed? Soooo pretty!

    Yes, that is the top. No flannel. All cotton. Remember the bottom layer will show through because you do not cut it. I sewed them 3/4 inch apart and invested in the cutting tool, which makes it much easier than scissors. It was washed once but will ruffle more with each washing.

    Beautiful! Love the fabric. I have made 5-6 and always put the printed fabric on the bottom with the wrong side showing through the slits! Love the design on top cut part. Will try your way the next one I make. Thanks for sharing!

    Thank you for the information. I am going to get the cutting tool and make one quick. This is so colourful and cheery.
