'Chenille' bag

I've made a little bag using the 'chenille' method. I've used four layers of fabric which I stitched at 1cm intervals diagonally - it doesn't work if you stitch straight across. You then cut between the rows of stitching leaving the bottom layer intact. Then wash it to fray the cut edges slightly to give the 'chenille' appearance. I've used a couple of the fab 'We R Memory Keepers' eyelets on the fastening - with press-studs underneath xx
