Fall is nigh!

Chenille Hearts ‘N’ Such

Looking for another mode of expression? Try making some quick chenille embellishments with your embroidery machine.

Use scraps of rayon or most any loosely woven fabrics to create chenille onto your project. Use prints, solids, or combinations of colors and prints.

It’s a great use for those old rayon clothes that have raveled, faded, stained, or just don‘t fit anymore. Cut up the fabric into a chenille embellishment.

I made this for our dentist, Dr. Hart

Chenille is easy to make with the embroidery machine. If you can sew appliqué designs within the hoop, then you can sew these designs. My Chenille Hearts ‘N’ Such collection has a very low stitch count, making the designs a quick, easy embellishment, which only looks like a lot of fuss. 

Sew them on any fabric. I use just water soluble stabilizer. No permanent stabilizer is required on the backside, making them the perfect complement for jazzing up knit clothes.  Of course, the real limits on how to use these design are found at the boundaries of your imagination.

The Designs

Also included is a small sample design to use in testing fabrics for a total of 10 designs.
