After that, I decided I really needed to try a proper chenille cutter and my friend Marjory recommended the Clover one. It is fabulous. It just tears through the layers of fabric and it took me half the time. Wish I had bought one years ago!
For fluffing up, as I still don't have a tumble drier, I used a clean kitchen non-stick scouring sponge. It seemed to work well.
