As I have mentioned in the past, I have been making some baby blankets for friends who are having babies.
My original plan was to make a blanket similar to this one that I found on Etsy
Having never sewn minky I was a bit shocked by how hard it actually was. It is stretchy and moves really easily, and was just a general pain in the toosh. A quick google search revealed that I am not the only one who complained about this, and apparently the trick is to use pins. LOTS OF PINS. Once I got the hang of it, it was rather easy to do.
So I made another one. And another.
