Minky Baby Blanket

Minky Baby Blanket
One nice thing about sewing, is that it allows you to be less dependent on buying retail items at the retail price.  If you save your coupons, you can usually make a gift that’s nicer and more economical.  Making a minky baby blanket is pretty easy, even for beginners, plus you’ll be making one that’s just as nice as the ones you find at the baby stores.  The dimensions given in this tutorial are for a receiving blanket size so you can make one with just one yard of minky fabric and one package of satin binding.  If you can’t find minky at your fabric store, you can substitute fleece.  Any baby would be lucky to receive one of these luxurious blankets that are made with love!

    Love the blanket!! We’re expecting a grandchild in June, and this would be a perfect gift. I have an older Pfaff 1475 and am just beginning a search for a walking foot. If I can’t find one, would the existing dual feed work with the Minky fabric and satin binding?

      I would call a local sewing machine repair shop. They’ll probably have a good idea on how you can get one or if there’s a pfaff dealer nearby.

Starting in 2009, the Professor Pincushion team had a vision of creating a sewing tutorial website in which beginners could learn and master the art of sewing. Our site launched in March of 2010 and we have since produced over a hundred sewing related tutorials that cover everything from sewing basics to fun and original projects. Regardless of the subject, we always strive to create HD quality videos that takes the viewer step by step through each process so that nothing is left out and the mystery behind learning to sew is revealed to all.
