Her mama requested some soft and cuddly blankets and I set out to see what I could do.
I decided to create cozy blankets that were soft with knit on one side and cuddly with minky fabric on the other. The good news is, they turned out cute. The bad news is, the fabrics hated each other. So, keep in mind when selecting your fabrics- stretch fabric plays well with other stretch fabric but not so well with minky. Save yourself some frustration and select 2 fabrics that will not fight on your machine. (I actually knew this would happen...but I couldn't help it- they were so cute I thought my machine's ability to keep fabric even would win out...yea, not so much.)
I found all of the knit fabric at my local Joann's store as well as the pink and purple minky fabric. The white cuddly fabric was from my stash. I really loved these knit prints- so fresh and fun for a little one.
