Fleece can be a great fabric to work with and in this video ZJ Humbach shares with you why sewing fleece is one of her favorites! At 60 inches wide it’s one of the more cost effective fabrics to buy, it’s warm and lightweight, and has the added benefit of not raveling. This not only makes it easy to work with, but with no need to finish edges it makes it great for whipping up last minute gifts like blankets! ZJ takes you through other advantages of sewing fleece, as well as explains some of its trickier attributes like whether it has a grain and which directions have the most stretch. ZJ also shares ideas of projects that can be made entirely out of fleece like blankets, sweaters, or toys, and shows some examples of projects that can be accented with fleece.
