Slashing is the process of layering cotton fabrics, machine stitching through the layers, cutting some of the layers, and washing the piece until the desired amount of fraying occurs. Inspired by this technique, Homberg has developed the process of creating faux chenille. Here she details both her successes and failures, strongly recommending the creation of a sample block before committing to a project as the combination of unrelated colors and textures will greatly affects the results. Homberg offers directions for creating unique wearable art and wall hangings, along with the basic steps of layering, stitching, and laundering. Beginner techniques with expert adventurous artistic results; a nice addition to most collections.JYL
