making of your own chenille fabric and making a heatingscarf cover of it=D
Here is the promised cover for the scarf heating pillow.
Again because i will move , i must clean my materials.LOL
I had seen this chenille making years ago on some clothing parts.
I really like it.
When i was searching last year on the internet to clover materials shops. I saw a special tool for making this chenille fabric. when i call the salesman (it was a woman.LOL she told the directions to make it.
And thought why not buying. I have discovered that you really don't have to!
But i can be handy, i didn't like it at all.
but its fun to make you're own chenille.
My mother in law had a bedspread of it, My own mother disliked it, because she called it as kitschy. So pitty.
So because its kitshy and i'm still ond of it, i like to share you this.
Its really easy to make, and of course you can make it for other uses as well, like bags or, bedspreads or ,other covers or....clothes!
O, a last point the time is whichtout the washing and drying after the cutting of your fabric.
feel free to ask me i've you want;-D

  • Step 1

    I had maked a chinelle heatingscarf cover,so the measures i had to cut of the fabric is depending what you like to make of the chenille fabric.
    Don't uses very thick fabric, or only on the underlayer!

    but this are mine measures.
    i have taken 145cm (58 inches) x 30 cm (12 inches)
    cut four layers form this sizes and pin them on each other.

    Attention:
    Washes always your fabric before you will uses them, it can be crimping when it wasn't washed before!
    And ironing them before its helping you too a lot. I'm not such a fan of ironing=D but its better to do so.LOL

  • Step 2

    draw with the tailors chalk diagonal lines at 4 cm /1,50 inches distance on the four layers of fabric.
    I like the smaller lines, like the small covers i had made. the lines are more next to each other , about 2 cm/0,50 inches.

    this isn't a recommandation, but this a one of the tools you can buy or use for making chenille fabric.

    Its not so wrong, only you must sew again a layer on the last one in diagonal way.

hi , a heating scarf. is a sort of heating pillow filled with rice of corn which you can put in the microwave to heaten it up and then you can wrap it over your cold feeds or neck or belly when you have a stomac pain , its like a hot water bottle, for in bed when its cold. and the most heating pillows are not long , and i like it when i can cover my feets on cold day in it, or when i having pain in my neck to wrap it around my neck.
Mostly people add some smelly hearbs in them too. It give you comfort. and of course you can lay it too in your bed in winter times. In my country it is very cold in the winter.
Hope you understand this. so not i will give it a try again. have a great fun week.;-D
