Last week the fabric was on the loom.
The fabric was cut in half, joined at the selvages at the back and the sides. It's a simple pattern, but not easy with handwoven chenille. Chenille can be a challenging fabric. It tends to unravel so easily. The mending zigzag on the sewing machine worked best to keep the chenille fabric from returning to yarn!
