So it is a DEFINITE truth that I am not able to embroider on Minky fabric. You know that super soft and plush fabric that usually has raised dots. It's great for baby blankets and is usually backed with a silky fabric. I knew it would be a treacherous endeavor. I tried to find tips online and they all said "don't do it". I should have know then. I was for a girl at church who was going to give it as a present. I warned her that I might ruin it and I wasn't charging her for it. I did all these extra steps to it, used spray adhesive and a water soluble stabilizer and pinned it to the hoop. And all I got was a product worth of *epicfail*. I might be exaggerating but it was VERY frustrating. The backside was a HUGE knotted mess!
