Ruffle and Minky Baby Blanket


I think this is one of my favorite blankets I have made so far for my little baby girl.  It has minky on one side and ruffled fabric on the other. 

To start out I cut my minky into a 44 inch square.  Then I cut my ruffled fabric into the same size.  I have noticed that the ruffle fabric comes in different widths.  I wanted my blanket square and the ruffle fabric came in 44 inches wide.  When I cut in between the ruffles I cut right in the middle so that I would have something to sew without catching the ruffle. 
then take one of your pieces and lay it down with the right side facing you.  Then put the other one on top of that with the wrong side facing you like the picture above.  Pin them together.  Just make sure that all of your ruffles are heading the same direction
Sew all the way around the blanket but make sure to leave a little hole big enough for you to turn the blanket right side out.  I like to use a walking foot when I work with minky.  When you are done pull out ALL of the pins (for some reason I left one in and had to unpick a spot so I could get it out)
Make sure to check around the blanket for any missed sewed spots or if you caught any ruffles going the wrong direction. 
I didn't take a picture of this part but, sew your little hole closed.  The minky will hide really well where you sew the hole shut.  I hid the sewing on the ruffle side by flipping up ruffle and sewing under neath it. 

This blanket I think took me about 45 minutes and most of that time was in pinning the ruffles.  I get so many compliments on how cute this blanket is, and now that it is getting cold around here I think I need to make her a couple more.

I love the colors- not the same old light pink or baby blue. Very sophisticated, but also looks so soft and cuddly. Great job!
