sewing with minky tips by gurliebot sewing with minky tips by gurliebot
Ah! A monster!

Anyway, here is a tutorial/tips on using minky. I'm assuming that you know how it use a sewing machine and know basic construction. :)

The techniques of this tutorial can also be applied to fleece and velour! :)

Feel free to ask me questions! I'll either answer, or direct you to a more reliable resource. <3

Enjoy!

If you are using an embroidery machine, and embroidering things, then yes.
Regular sewing, no.

Generally sewing is much easier when you have opposable thumbs.
But yes, you can sew minky without a machine.

Why shouldn't you fold over the fabric and cut? Also how much does it shed when you cut it?

when working with thicker fabrics/faux furs, cutting individual pieces reduces the chances of a bottom piece being slightly smaller or inexact.

it sheds mildly when cut.

Pin, pin, pin~ I almost never pin, no wonder my pieces often shift a bit. xwx"

Yes! Just make sure to use pins and a sharp needle :) it maybe a bit tough if you get to more than two layers.
