    Red face Practicing with Minky

    Pushed aside all my UFO's for the day and decided to play around with some minky fabric. I truly do not do well with any type of fabric that stretches but thought I would give this a try.
    I made a Lovie blankie with matching Bunny Ear teething ring. (blanket is just 16" sq)

    I figured if I kept it 'small scale' I might do better, plus I wouldn't end up wasting so much fabric. I was surprised at how well this turned out. Although the name isn't as easy to read as I would have liked (Zoey) I think that was more a poor choice of fonts.

    Love your fabric colors......I did a 36" flannel and minky blanket and I too was surprised about how easy the minky was to work with. It did stretch some but I could work with it. Good job....love the green with the pink!♥

    I think if I try anything bigger than this it will be flannel on one side and minty the other.
    As a matter of fact, one of my UFO's is a larger baby quilt I might try a minke backing on.

    Thank you...although you can't really tell from the photo but both sides are actually minky.

    ​Great job! Is the teething ring natural wood with the fabric tied on? I know someone who is teething right now and I would like to make one.
