    Does anyone have any experience with appliqueing minkee? Would certainly like to have some help/ideas on this.

    Otherwise, I expect that one can only make squares from this fabric???

    When I did my applique with minkee I did it this way,

    Just don't iron it at the end because it will wreck the minkee. I sewed it down with a buttonhole stitch. Heres a picture of one of the bears I did.

    It isn't difficult, you just need to go slow and a satin stitch can't be real tight. More a zig zag as the minkee will stretch.
    I used fusible and ironed. but I used the minkee blankee not the textured minkee.
