Every time I walk by soft fabric that is used for baby blankets, I have to stop and take a touch. They are so soft. I'm always tempted to buy a yard or two just to have some for myself. But I never buy any because #1 it's expensive, and #2 I don't have any babies so it seems ridiculous.
However, several weeks ago as I was browsing the 50% off remnant bin at JoAnn's, lo and behold, there was some milky cream Minky Dot Chenille. My favorite. I had to touch it. And then I had to have it, justifying that all things soft and cuddly aren't just for babies and it was way cheaper than usual, being a random piece off the end of a bolt.
But I didn't stop there. I had to feel other minky remnants and walked away with another piece just as soft and creamy as the chenille.
The silky cream colored satin fabric I found a few weeks before went perfectly on the back.
