DIY Cozy Chevron Minky Throw | DIY Throw Blankets | Minky Fabric | Aqua Chevron | Throw Blankets | Crafts | Sewing Ideas

Doesn’t the month of January just make you want to curl up under a blanket with a good book and a cup of hot chocolate? When I started working on my office a few months ago I decided that a cozy throw was a necessity. Inspired my my daughters’ special blankys, which they have both had since they were born, I wanted something super soft and cozy that would keep me warm on the chilliest mornings.

I found some soft white minky fabric on Amazon and decided to pair it with some pretty aqua chevron fabric that I already had on hand. A few straight lines and less than an hour later I had the perfect cozy throw!

Assemble your materials for the cozy throw: minky fabric, chevron fabric, scissors, stick pins, thread and a sewing machine.

Here is what you need:

2 yards soft minky fabric
2 yards chevron fabric
sharp scissors
stick pins
thread
sewing machine

 

Lay out minky fabric, soft side up then spread out chevron fabric on top.

Step 1: Lay out minky fabric, soft side up, on large flat surface or floor. Spread out chevron fabric overtop of minky fabric, right side down. Line up fabric against corner and 2 straight edges.

Trim excess of both pieces of fabric so they're the same size.

Step 2:  Trim excess fabric so that the two pieces are the same size.

Carefully pin fabric together all the way around.

Step 3: Carefully pin fabric together all the way around.

Carefully sew along all four edges with a one inch margin.

Step 4: Carefully sew along all four edges with a one inch margin, leaving a 12 inch opening along one side.

Turn throw right-side out through the opening.

Step 5: Turn throw right-side out through opening.

Pin opening closed and sew along all four sides.

Step 6: Pin opening closed and sew along all four sides, leaving a 1/2″ margin.
