This is a 43 page PDF Download Tutorial Sew and Slash

What is “Chenille” chenille is the French word for caterpillar whose texture is supposed to resemble the fur or pile of the caterpillar. Layers of soft, lightweight fabric, predominantly cotton are sewn together in a particular design of channels and then slashed to expose the bottom colors. The edges are then ragged to create a fluffy, soft, vintage look.This technique can be used to create “new” textured fabric which can be used to create blankets, pillows, bags or even coats.It can also be used to embellish clothing creating a visual reverse applique effect which can be then additionally embellished with embroidery, beads or buttons.It can also be used to create art and that is what I will be focusing on in this tutorial.My version of the technique uses scraps and different fabrics to create tactile art pieces.I will be showing how I create 7 different pieces in this tutorialYou will also learn how to bind and prepare your quilted art work for hanging.You don't need to buy any special tools for this, a regular domestic sewing machine will do the job. When I teach I don't know what machines or tools people will have and I want everyone to be able to use my techniques without having to spend any money to buy new machines or expensive tools. My tutorials are designed to be used with a standard domestic straight stitch machine. You can also reuse fabrics you have at home to recreate them into a beautiful piece of fabric.
