nicely folded


I like this fabric.
I wish I could figure out how to make stretchy minky work with non-stretchy cotton. No matter how I cut them, they never quite match up when sewn. This equals BUNCHING. If the softy were to stay forever folded, it would be OK. Or even better, gently cuddled around a baby. But you know mommy will, sooner or later, lay the blanket down flat and try to refold. Bunching will be displayed. Flaws will be revealed. The tag might as well read: "Beauty in Imperfection {the softy, not your baby}."

Norah's softie has zero bunching and we love it. Beauty in perfection.

That's because Norah's is faux fur, not minky. I forgot how much I like the fur.

Hold the phone, I did mine in faux fur and they were still bunchy!

Where'd you get the great fabric? I hope polka dots stay cool forever. I love them so.

bunchy or not, I love your stuff. I wish you could tutor me.

So much in fact that I posted about it a while ago.

For sure!

Emily and I know each other by blogs only, but she seems like a great girl, bet you are too.

Glad I'm not the only one. I always want to put on everything I give to people, "Perfectly imperfect!" Very cute, and I think most people wouldn't really even notice the flaws. They only make it more unique.
