Printed Minky Review
edit to add: yes the printed minky is washable! I didn't wash mine, but according to spoonflower "Wash separately in cool or warm water using a gentle machine cycle. Machine dry using a low temperature or permanent press setting and remove promptly to avoid wrinkles." Although please don't machine wash a plush, ahah. Just the fabric.
------------------
So I recently got the chance to play with printed minky! Here's a sort of review about it
Bought from: spoonflower.com
Price: $28/yrd. Very expensive, but for a very versatile product of this quality it's definitely justified.
Shipping: Only $6 to Canada, with tracking, took about a week and a half to arrive once shipped, no duties. A+
File prep: spoonflower has very simple requirements that are easy to follow. I scanned my pattern pieces, cleaned them up and colored them, then I copied them into a file that was set to spoonflower's specifications (150dpi, set to the width of minky. I added length as I needed it). To make sure my pieces

I bought one! :la: It's a Brother Innov-is 750E.
It's a dream come true, I'm so happy! I'm now figuring out how to work with minky, how to make patterns for patches and plushies myself, but it feels like I'm learning fast (and really I only got it Tuesday evening)! If you have an embroidery machine, please share any tips or tricks if you want :heart: I really hope I'll have some embroidered stuff available at Dutch Comic Con this November, but we'll see how it goes :D Oh man I'm so excited! You can follow my progress and failures on my Instagram and Tumblr c: That's also where I post daily Sketchember and Inktober art! This DA account is in need of some serious updating, so much to do! (And let's not forget about my thesis, which isn't going to write itself). Hope you all are doing great! :la:

Etsy Stamp by Nicole-Marie-Walker Commissions Open by SquirtleStamps (Plushie commissions are CLOSED atm)
Hi! :)
My name is Kristel, I'm a 24-year-old Archaeology student from the Netherlands with a passion for the visual arts! I love drawing and plush-making and am fond of history, animation and nature. I am especially interested in the (Italian) middle ages and museums! :aww:. Besides that I love creating art. I have a fondness of mustelids and rodents, and tend to be drawn towards the lesser-known small mammals. Some of my favourite shows and books are: Steven Universe, Avatar (The last Airbender and Legend of Korra), Fullmetal Alchemist (Brotherhood), Harry Potter, His Dark Materials, and many Disney and Studio Ghibli movies. I really love Pokemon as well. Feel free to talk to me, I love meeting people with similar interests :D
