"Minky is a special type of plush fabric that is often used to make baby blankets, baby clothing and baby accessories. Minky fabric is like fleece – but softer and thicker. The high quality of minky fabric prevents its colors from fading and its warmth from decreasing over time."
It's a bitch and a half to sew with because the edges shed. So, while you are cutting it out and sewing it up, you get snowed on by fabric bits. Which have the same kind of static electricity of styrofoam beads. And each seam has to be finished to stop the mess. It would be great if I had a serger... which I don't. It has no stretch which isn't fun but I love the colors and the soft and warm.
This is the coziest shirt in the universe! I am glad the cleaning lady is coming on Wednesday.
Before the fabric arrived, I did get a couple of dolls done. Good sewing day but WHEW what a mess!
