Gorgeous! Good for you. (Chenille is another item on my learn-to-do list. Think I'll try a blanket first.) Thanks for showing us your jacket. (We're envious!)

I used a sweatshirt that was 2 sizes to big. DO NOT WASH SWEATSHIRT OR FABRIC. I cut the sweatshirt up into 5 pieces. The back, the front (cut down the middle) and the sleeves. You can cut the ribbing off if you want to. I put the fleece size facing up, I used 3 pieces of flannel on each piece. Than from the bottom left corner, I drew a 45 degree line in chalk. I sewed my first line on this than sewed my next line about a 1/2inch from this until I covered the whole piece. I than cut the flannel between the lines. Put back together. Put binding on. Washed and dryed with 2 towels.

If this isn't clear, I can try to draw some pictures. Just let me know.

Thank you very much for the comments on my jacket.

That is really a cute jacket. Thanks for sharing and the instructions. I'll have to print them off and put in a my pile of "I got to try this" patterns/instructions.
About how long did it take you to make it?

Happy sewing/quilting/crafting

Maybe 4 or 5 hours. I didn't do it all at once. I worked a couple of hours over a couple of days. It is nice and warm. I have been wearing it out without another jacket. It seems to be perfect for the weather we have been having.
