Sewing Minky Tips
Minky is such a soft fabric and makes great blankets. It is long lasting and fade resistant. The fabric doesn’t wrinkle easily either.
It comes in many patterns, solids and embossed designs. The fabric is mainly sold through Shannon Fabrics. They call their fabric line Cuddle. Fabric.com is a great place to get minky. If you buy over $50, your shipping is free. Etsy is also another good place.
Minky has one major problem. It is hard to work with if you don’t have any experience with it. When I first started working with it, it seems to have a life of it’s own. I would pin it and it would move. I would have to rip it apart and try again.
