A Ta-Dah Moment… Look At My Chenille


Look at this. How did I do?

To say I am pleased with the outcome would be an understatement. I am up on my rooftop waving it like a flag. Come see!! And shouting. I want all of my neighbors to see my Faux Chenille doll quilt. 😀

But seriously… not bad, huh, for my first one?

Don’t know if you have ever tried making chenille but I was surprised (actually shocked) that it didn’t shed in the wash. For real!! I had some casual tops that needed washing but was afraid the cut strips would unravel and mess them up. So I threw in five towels to keep the quilt company as it swished round and round in the wash. Not a single thread on the towels. And only a teeny tiny bit of lint in the lint tray. The chenille crinkled up more in the dryer. I am thinking after one more washing the inside color should open up. But I love it!! Just as it is.

And of course a little girl has to accessorize her doll quilt. She needs a ruffled doll pillow. Made with the leftover scraps.

And a cute little purse for herself.

Could be reversible.

Well, that was fun. Now it is time to tackle a larger faux chenille. Baby quilt size.

These are the fabrics I selected. I will start cutting today. Wish me luck!!
