Easy Minky Receiving blanket tutorial...

My little girl LOVES minky fabric.  She has like 3 or 4 blankets made out of it and she insists on sleeping with them and dragging them all over the house.  They are kind of expensive to buy but SO easy to make.  For this blanket I used 1 yard of Michael Miller Kokeshi in pink and 1 yard of pink minky fabric.  The minky I bought came 60 inches wide so you could probably get 2 blankets out of a yard if you made them each 30x30.  I made my blanket 36x36 and used the extra minky for other projects.  Iron the printed fabric well before sewing.  It's not a good idea to iron the minky dot fabric because it will flatten the dots.
