Next I pinned my fabrics with the Chevron and Minky facing each other. I used all purpose white sewing thread and worked my way around the blanket.
I left about a 6 inch gap, so I could easily turn the fabric inside out. Next I did a simple hand stitch and closed up the hole.
I wanted to give the blanket a more finished look, so I did a simple top stitch 1x on top of the chevron print. I am by no means an excellent sewer, so I just took my time keeping a straight line.
Here's the modern Chevron blanket, I made for my little baby boy. It's the perfect blanket for him to play on and for cooler evenings out. I love the Chevron print has many colors that all look so cute together.
I held the blanket up against the nurseries new wall color Silver Drop and love how it looks in the room already.
I love this blanket, and it was made on the cheap. The Minky fabric was only $ 4.54 for one yard and the Chevron was $ 8.98 - Total $ 13.52 plus I found a coupon online taking 10% off my purchases, so I spent around $ 12 bucks, not to shabby. I bought this fabric from Fabric.com
What do you think of the Modern Chevron Minky blanket I made?
