My baby girl is turning 1 tomorrow.
Can you believe it has already been a year?
Sniff sniff. I can't believe it.
She loves ANYTHING minky.
So I decided to make her another minky blanket to add to her collection of soft and fluffy snugglers
I will say, I think this one is the cutest ;)
I love the ruffle trim and binding. It made it that much fluffier, and I am all about the fluff!
So here is how I did it.
I started out with a
32"x40" Piece of Minky
32"x40" Piece of cotton fabric
and (7) 5"x44" strips of cotton fabric for the ruffle
Next we are going to the ruffle the strip. If you have a ruffle foot, do your thing.
If you are like me and your ruffle foot gives you grief, you can ruffle the strip the old fashion way.
4. Next you take one end of the threads that are hanging and pull just one of the threads while holding onto your strip with the other hand.
Ruffles galore! You may need to adjust the length of your ruffles so they are long enough to go around your entire blanket.
5. Lay your minky piece and your cotton square right sides together. Make sure they are the same size and match up perfectly.
Pin around the entire quilt, every inch or so. Your ruffle will be inside.
Here is the back of the finished product!
and the front!
Love me those fluffy ruffles.
Yup, I just made up a word!
Good luck on your next project, whatever it may be!
