That's Sew Chenille! Make some holiday hot pads using the coolest chenille technique - all in a maxi or jumbo hoop. Learn how to use the chenille fabric technique with this project. The chenille technique means creating tufted velvety channels using layers of fabric. Christmas Chenille Hot Pads are as sweet as they are simple to make! The whole project is made entirely in the hoop - including the applique, the quilting, even the chenille! You will especially love that these Christmas hot pads can be made in multiple sizes. Six designs come on the CD. Pay $20.00 for the class and $10.00 per fabric kit. Choose your designs and sew as many as you would like during the day. Evelyn will be available to assist you with any of the designs you choose to make.
