Minky Tips

Minky can be difficult and frustrating to work with. Here are a few tips to help you out.

*Minky does not have to be prewashed. Remember though if you are sewing it to another fabric such as flannel, that fabric must be washed. The project may not lay right, otherwise due to shrinkage after washing.

*Play with your stitch length. I prefer a longer length.

*Do not iron Minky. It will ruin nap.

*Pins are your friend. Minky can shift. Use pins. DO NOT SEW OVER THEM.
Totally Stitchin': Working with Minky
*Lots of fuzz is left behind, care for your machine.

*Always use a ball point needle.

I am having so much fun making my grandson (due in July) all sorts of soft cuddly things with Minky.
I hope you have fun with it too!
