Has anyone ever done chenille on a serger? I heard you can. What stitch do you use? Chenille> putting four layers of fabric together and stitching them, then cutting through three layers. thank you .

In making some cushion covers, I used a chenille fabric and the 4 thread overlock stitch. Lots of little fibers so I had to keep frequently cleaning the machine and changing needles. Did a nice job though. Happy Stitching!
