    Today I had to take apart this little girl's blankie and fix one patch, add length and width and a new back. She was so happy! I have never worked with Minkie but I liked it and also it was my first time putting on a premade blanket binding. It was less than perfect but the little girl wasn't complaining!

    Looking at the new binding reminds me of when I was little and use to suck my thumb while rubbing it between my thumb and finger. Thanks for the memory. What a cutie!! I think she loves it too.

    She was so sweet...she said "thank you Auntie, I promise I'll take good care of it!"
    Her Mom was tearie eyed...what a satisfying project!

    Exactly why I had to add a new one...the old satin binding was worn out....
