So my minky & ribbon comforter is done. It’s so super soft and snugly – how old do you have to be before you stop using one of these?!
I put it together by sandwiching the loops of ribbon between a square of minky and a square of velour. I then stitched round the edge before turning it the right way out and top stitching round the edge again. But everything kept shifting out of position and one of the ribbons ended up at a completely wonky angle so I don’t think this was the best approach.
I don’t know if I’ve mentioned crafty club before (where my friends Anna, Sarah and I meet up for a night of chat and crafty goodness), but I made this at crafty club and Anna was making one at the same time. Her approach was to sew all the ribbons onto the velour before sewing the velour and minky together. It seemed to work much better so next time I make one of these, I’m going to try that.
Oh and mental note for the future. I shouldn’t wear fleece when handling minky because it’s a minky fluff magnet and I was covered in the stuff by the end of the evening!
