Fun today making faux chenille at my textile class. A lot of stitching, slashing and fluffing up, and a great way to use up fabric from my stash and experiment with different effects.

Colourful cottons stitched in straight lines.

I love the way it is named after fluffy caterpillars!
(Chenille = French for caterpillar)
