Minky Blanket toppers are officially my new obsession!   Custom fabric companies have started printing larger toppers on Minky for you to back with whatever fabric you choose.  They make the most amazing unique blankets!   This Majesty collection from Smoogie Fabric and Design is absolutely breathtaking!  Sometimes photos online don’t always translate to in real life but these did not disappoint!!   Look at this turtle topper backed with Minky Galaxy Yardage!?! It’s seriously breathtaking!

The toppers come in two sizes-  36×30 which is perfect for toddlers and 72×60 which is amazing adult size!!  Pictured is the 72×60  size and  I used 2 yards of the minky galaxy yardage for the back.   For the fringe, I found it at Joanns (unfortunately they don’t carry it online but hopefully your store has it) and I just basted along the bottoms first.  Then I serged the two minky pieces together, turned it right side out, and hand stitched it closed and voila- a super fast gorgeous blanket! (Tip- I bought 3.5 yards of fringe and had tad extra)

There is a ton of different ways you can finish your minky blankets and different options to back them with including fur, bamboo, sherpa, fleece, minky, and more!  It all depends what style of blank you want.  I’ve also added a fleece layer in between the minky layers to add some extra structure and weight for blankets I wanted a little heavier for the colder months. I know Minky can seem scary as it’s very slippery but just remember to use a ton of clips and pins, take it slow, and go for it!  The results are worth it!

 

Smoogie also has this collection available for shirt panels and yardage in a lot of different base options so head on over to Smoogie and get your pre-orders in before they close on 2/26!   Pre-orders can take between 6-12weeks to get to the host plus cutting and shipping time to you but they are well worth the wait!   27503782_1710955302297449_3667038614250189517_o
