Minkies for Hunny

Just wanted to share a couple of photos of some blankies that I made for Hunny on Sunday evening.
This lovely embroidery design was graciously sent to me by Marisa Bordados.
Marisa is a fellow flickr member from Brasil.
I admired her embroidery and she told me to send her my email address and she would send me some of her patterns.
Wasn't that so kind !

I made a few smaller blankies, and then two double sided minkies,

as the weather here in Perth is very chilly!

Peach with a Heather Bailey cabbage rose.


These blankets were so easy and quick to knock up.

I am not a huge fan of sewing minky because the stretch in it can be a pain, and if you are fussy (like me!) you have to spend lots of time with extra pinning to make sure you get a lovely even hem..

But my new Bernina Walking Foot made it such a breeze!

I asked Mr Deekie Belle to get this for me for our anniversary.

Not very romantic I know, but I totally love it!!


I will never shy away from pile with stretch again :o) !

Hope you all had a great weekend !

back soon with more!

Hugs, Jen xo

Gorgeous blankies Jen... those designs are so sweet, and I'm sure Hunny will love them, and keep her very cosy for the last of these chilly weeks!!
