Baby blanket for a Lil Lax Chick

Project Description

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.

What you will need

Q&A with NiceThreads

paws2 asked:
When you embroidered the fleece did you have any difficulty with the slippery nature? and if sew how did you handle it ?
NiceThreads answered:
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.
