Sewing With Fleece: Essential Techniques

via Craftsy


Learn to cut, handle, seam and finish fleece with sewing instructor Pattie Otto. Start with how to choose the best fleece for your projects. Then practice laying out, cutting, stitching and hemming fleece as you create a fun beanie with the included multi-size template. Speedily sew two fleece mittens at once, and add stretchy ribbed cuffs for a snug fit. Sew up Pattie’s comfy Cascade Mountain Pullover pattern with tips for preventing seam stretching, adding pockets, inserting a perfect exposed zipper and finishing. Next, convert your pullover into a clever full-zip jacket with in-seam pockets, a collar, drop-shoulder sleeves and beautiful topstitching. Plus, learn pattern variations for your outerwear: Add a hood, create a vest, apply fold-over elastic trim and more! Discover how to sew fleece as you create warm, wonderful accessories and outerwear. Important Pattern Information: This class is rich in essential sewing techniques for working with outerwear fleece. The patterns for the beanie-style hat and mittens shown in class are included in multiple sizes, within the Class Bonus Materials. The jacket sewing pattern on which this class is based — Great Copy 2035 Cascade Mtn Pullover — is not included with your purchase. You can find it at, where it is available in either print or download versions.
