Sewing

Need a quick gift? Or just want something new and fun to keep you warm? Make a back-to-back throw in under an hour using cozy, fuzzy chenille.

It’s super simple with a lot of pins!  You need 1.3m of both the chenille fur for the face and the micro chenille for the back.  Trim selvedges and straighten both edges of the micro chenille to have a 1.25×1.5cm (50×60″) rectangle.  Lay the micro chenille over top of the fur chenille with right sides together and pin every 7cm (3″). Trim the chenille fur to match the micro chenille.  Stitch 1.25cm (.5″) around the entire throw leaving a 15cm (6″) opening.  Remove pins, turn right side out and hand or machine stitch the opening closed.  That’s it!
