And now, the moment you didn’t even know you’ve been waiting for…the first post in my new “from pin to project” series!
>My Pin: Minky Baby Blankets from Girls Gone Child
I tried this: April 2012
Alterations: I didn’t do a trim, the way that GGC’s mom did. It would have been way too much for this newbie…
Thoughts: I am thrilled to be able to give our daughter a super cute, durable, versatile, hand sewn blanket, which only cost about $15 in fabric and about four hours of my time (made at our first Craft Wednesday). It was my first time using a sewing machine (with lots of help and guidance from my friend, Tara), and it won’t be the last. Minky is a very difficult fabric to work with and requires lots and lots of pinning prior to sewing. If at all possible, I will come up with alternative fabrics to use instead of minky in the future.
