Good advice on working in the technique of "chenille"
This is not even a master class, but a story, what mistakes should not be made when making things using the chenille technique. As always wanted. I must, I do. I studied master classes on the Internet, and this is what you should not do. Do not take more than five layers of fabric. Stitch can and stitch, but cut - the problem. True, I cut with scissors. I have no knife for chenille
The fabric must be soaked, it is cotton, then it will sit in the finished product. Layers, as recommended laid out from light to dark. The larger the pattern on the main top background, the more spectacular the finished product looks. As I saw the front side on all the photos, I went to rub it on the front side, until in the middle of the work I didn’t turn it over to the inside and draw on the plain fabric.
The size of the workpiece is more than what you need. I didn’t listen to good advice, scribbling in 1.5-2 cm ... I think, what a nonsense is wide, not beautiful. As a result, it was necessary to cut with nail scissors, large stripes 1 cm wide are not included.
In some places, after all, it slashed the lowest layer, the base. I thought, thought and taped interlining and overdue zigzag. In general, saved.
Fluffed out with a stiff brush. Lint a lot, do a long time.
Now the pillowcase in the washing machine at the last stage. Because of the heat and the stress of the machine is not worth it. I'm waiting for a wonderful result.
Best of all is the Belarusian flax. The top layer - Ivanovo calico, stands to death. Conclusion: listen to good advice.
