What materials did you use? minky

What are you most proud of? It was a very appropriate & personal gift for her. A baby blanket is a good place for any kind of a theme to make it personal.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? 2 layers of minky is difficult to sew together because both layers are fluid & stretch as you try to get them the same size. Use a walking foot & make sure you have a big enough work space to lay it out flat as you work on it.

When you embroidered the fleece did you have any difficulty with the slippery nature? and if sew how did you handle it ?

That white fabric is minky, it's no problem to embroider on that or fleece. I hoop sticky-back stabilizer, then stick the fabric to it (not hooping it) and add a watersoluable stabilzer over it so that the thread doesn't sink into the fabric. I live the sticky back stabilizer it stops all fabric movement. My machine also sews a basting sqare around the embroidery field, but before I had this machine I would just baste the fabric down with my sewing machine.
