So this was my second experience sewing on Minkie. Quite a challenge I must say. I was ready to throw the fabric out the window because of all the slippage involved. I think that I pinned it 100 times. But thanks to all my Minkie blogging grannies, one of them suggested using Sew N Stitch...I had iron-on seam binding so I decided to give it a shot. I had to carefully only iron the .5" that the binding covered or I would flatten the minkie dots. After ironing on the binding it seemed to adhere to the cotton nicely so I could sew the two pieces without it shifting. After talking to some friends at Eddie's Quilting Bee they all said that minkie was a naughty fabri
c to work with, so I don't feel as discouraged.
Her personalized label is cut out with scallop sheers, hand-embroidered then tacked on with silver thread. My final star label was then tacked on with the same iron on binding. (Next time I should just sew it into the seam. It's all in the little touches I say! :) I hope baby Kate enjoys it when she arrives on Christmas Eve!
