Making chenille with machine embroidery is fun and easy. I like to use flannel for chenille because it frays well and is soft. Chenille is perfect for baby quilts, rag quilts, decorative pillows, shirts and throws.

The most commom question I get about chenille is what type of thread should be used. Any embroidery thread for your machine will do because chenille is not made from thread. It is also not the same as a fringe design. It is made by layering fabric that frays.
