I had a discussion with a fellow seamstress about sewing on minky dot. She wondered how I could stand using it with it being so hard to sew.
The problem with minky dot is it moves when you are sewing so badly.
How to remedy?
As you can see in the picture I cut my minky about .5-1 inch bigger than I need it. That way I can hold on to it as I sew on it. After I'm done sewing the stitch, I go back and cut it off to remove bulk. This completely takes the pain away from sewing on the minky dot.
