Minky & puppy baby blanket

Project Description

What are you most proud of? It's so cute. And we wanted God to bless him, he was a premmie. What advice would you give someone starting this project? The only reason I gave this a 2 rating instead of a 1 is it can be difficult to get both front & back the same size. You have to have plenty of room to lay it out. Minky is so fluid and both sizes keep stetching as you're workning with it. For seaming, I run the seam with my sewing machine and then use that line to run it through the serger. Otherwise you won't be happy with how it feeds through the serger. Make sure you top stitch it all around or it will balloon out.

I am about to work with this fabric ....thanks sew much for the advice...I'm sure you have saved me lots of frustration!!
NiceThreads answered:
Minky stretches more in one direction than another. Make sure you put the 2 layers together so they're going the same way. It's easier to get them the same size.
