Looking for a beginner level DIY project? This chevron minky throw is easy to create and makes for the coziest gift anyone would appreciate!
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!

Step 2: Trim excess fabric so that the two pieces are the same size.
Step 3: Carefully pin fabric together all the way around.
Step 4: Carefully sew along all four edges with a one inch margin, leaving a 12 inch opening along one side.
Step 5: Turn throw right-side out through opening.
