The Not-So-Spectacular-But-Super-Cuddly Blankie
I got this polka dot minky fabric from a quilt shop in West Virginia. They had all their minky 40% off because it's so bulky and was taking up too much room in the shop.
I know this is not the most interesting blanket, but I was really impressed with how quick of a project this was. I sewed the right sides together and then turned inside out and sewed again on the outside. This is really helping the two pieces to not separate in the middle. I thought I would have to tack it down in the middle, but it's not necessary. I did rip the seams out once though because it was tricky to prevent the two pieces from bunching on one side. But even still, I finished it within one hour.
This minky is super nice. The length of the fur is longer than the minky at Joann's. It's so super cuddly, as I had Caleb demonstrate for you below. Isn't he cute? :)
