I've never heard of the technique of "chenilling". Could you elaborate? Also, do you have a pic of the fabric before it was chenilled? You've got me hooked...

I think this look fun, and a great use of yards off OTT fabric. I'd also like a description of chenilling.

What a creative use of "ugly" fabric. The finished look is anything but "ugly". I would agree it has a BEAUTIFUL water color effect to it. Great Job. ( I'll add learning "chenilling" to my to do list)

Your review is located under 311 not 31. Can this be fixed?

That is great, you have actually changed the fabric itself by the technique. I am impressed!

What a great idea! The jacket came out great. Definitely the same fabric, but it changed the character completely.

What a great way to tone down a bright fabric ssssdeb. That turned out beautifully and gave me ideas for some of my own "tacky" fabrics.

Love the effect your chenilling produced. Well worth the effort - a very classy jacket, and definately not ugly!

you have inspired me to look at my fabric in a whole new way. You made a 100% + change to that fabric.

I love the chenille look, and the chevron effect is wonderfully done. Gorgeous results! I, too, would like to know how to make the chenille--maybe there's a link to some tips somewhere?
