To apply the chenille, use a chenille foot (Viking & Pfaff machines) or an open toe foot with a tiny lightening stitch (zigzag set on 1.0 L & W) & follow these guidelines:
Do not cut ends of chenille even with edge of jacket as the chenille will draw up & shrink after washing. Instead leave ½” tail hanging off beginning & end, & trim after the first washing.
- When going around a corner such as a collar, simply sew up to the point, leave a tail & start a second piece going along the next line angle. Do not wrap the chenille around the corners.
- When finished applying chenille to the entire jacket, dip a chenille brush into some water & scrub the layers until they fray. Then wash & dry the jacket in a washing machine.
