How to Make a Minky Blanket

Learn how to make a minky blanket with two pieces of minky fabric. This is a great beginner sewing project perfect for gifts.

I’ve been given some really nice blankets as gifts, but they are often throw size which means they are just barely too small.

This would be the perfect easy gift to sew since it’s quick and easy. This is such a great beginner sewing project!


– Matching all-purpose thread – 90/14 jersey sewing machine needle – Sewing clips (or pins) – Navy Minky Fabric


Wash and dry your fabric first. With right sides together clip two sides together. Make sure that it’s selvedge to selvedge and cut edge to cut edge.


Once I had two sides clipped together I could tell if there was any  size discrepancies. The navy fabric was wider so I trimmed a little bit  off.


The indigo fabric was longer so I also trimmed that to fit. Clip the two remaining sides. On the selvedge side I could go farther between clips since that side doesn’t stretch.
