    Thank you, it was fun to do and now I am excited about trying all sorts of (soft) backing fabrics. The stretchy ones are trickier but I like the variety.

    So cute and, I'll bet, soft! I love Minky for it's softness, but not so much for the stretch.

    Do you have to wash and dry the Minkey before you use it?

    Turned out GREAT! Love the minky, as long as its not me sewing it, lol. I tried to fmq one and spent the next 2 days taking it all out (not fun). Can't seem to get the tension right for the minky.
