There is a special rotary cutter for doing chenille, that has a guard on the bottom,so you don't cut through the bottom layer
Tried to insert a picture, but not able to. Its from Olfa and is called Slash cutter.

Thanks for the link Jerry, I have the olfa cutter, and it cuts beautifully.

Hello Jane, if you look at the top of these comments, JRob was so kind to give the link to a very good explanation on how to do chenile work. Good luck, I loved doing this.

marietta by marietta 10 Oct 2012

Sorry, Jerrib posted the link above. Sorry for mistake Jerri.

jerrib by jerrib 10 Oct 2012

No problem Marietta, Jerrilyn and I pretty much have the same name. As long as it is usable for others, that is all that counts. I did a vest years ago with this procedure, used denim fabric and it turned out great.

Yes, this is 4 layers of material, and then you only cut through the top 3 layers, mine will have to still be washed a few times more before it shows all the colours.
