Sewing TSM Double Sided Minky

Have you had the chance to work with Double Sided Minky yet? If so, what have you created? Do you find you prefer to have a specific project in mind when sewing minky? Do you like to experiment with all kinds of projects, seeing if your mashed and hacked vision will come to life? Or a bit of both?

I hadn't sewn minky until very recently. I had brushed past it several times in fabric shops, but it was never a base I thought to reach for! After my first go with TSM double sided minky I was hooked. It took just pulling it out of the mailer to fall completely in love. The fabric itself was so incredibly soft, and the print was as vibrant as can be!

What does TSM Double Sided Minky (DSM) look like? TSM DSM is a super plush double-sided fabric that is 340-360gsm. has a lot of stretch at 100% horizontal stretch/25% vertical stretch, and keeps you warm and cozy as you wear! TSM DSM is printed on one side while the back side remains a beautiful white. TSM Double Sided Minky prints incredibly vivid! It is truly stunning to work with!

When I had ordered my first bit of double sided minky, I knew it would become joggers and a cozy top for my daughter, but once it arrived, I very much considered serging the ends and letting her keep the yardage as a simple blanket! I love just how versatile this base has already become for my girls! It is as fun to sew as it is to wear!

The first sew I made was that joggers set to lounge in, as mentioned. My daughter struggles with jeans and leggings but loves joggers. I thought she would be over-the-moon excited to have a new pair of joggers in double sided minky (DSM)! The height of cozy and luxuriousness for an eight-year old! Not to mention the print is her absolute favorite! Goodness, was I right! What was even better was that the set ended up being perfect for mix-n-match! She could pair the top with a solid bottom, wear a tee with the joggers for a sporty-casual day, or pair a denim jacket with the joggers for something cute to wear out and about, or toss on both items for a comfy day of lounging. I cannot count how many times she has worn both pieces since sewing, which means I cannot count how many times I have already washed both pieces, and the colors in the print as are bright as the day I opened the package! A total win-win-win project for both me and her!

Our Team at The Styled Magnolia has sewn some beautiful and unique creations this year with Double Sided Minky. Joggers and cozy tops are definite go-to's, but our team has also created things like baby bibs, burp cloths, stuffed animals, and even zipper pouches!! Below we've included a few of our Team's makes for more DSM inspiration! (Aren't the colors just stunning??)
