After doing some reading online, I discovered a walking foot for the sewing machine would make it feasible to work with the stretch minky material. It feeds the material from up top in addition from underneath, so the fabric moves thru the machine evenly. I picked up mine from Joann's with their weekly 40% off coupon. So here's my end result with the walking foot. I'm so happy with the way it turned out. This was a test I made for the Piggie. She's grown so attached to her pink satin/minky blanket - I thought this would help her spread the love a little. She likes it but still prefers the original. Then last week for Columbus Day - Joann's had a sale 40% off all minky material. I picked up some in cream and light green. I thought the green would be a nice gender neutral color. It would make a nice Christmas gift for all the babies we know.
