Get inspired to sew with one of these fleece sewing projects. These beginner sewing projects are perfect for a sewing machine or overlocker.
Fleece is such a fun fabric to work with and so easy to find. This is a great beginner knit because it is generally stable with just a little stretch.
It makes great blankets and slippers, but I also like to use it for a few summer projects like reusable splash balls and ice cube holders. There are even ways to use it for holiday sewing projects!
What is fleece fabric?
Fleece fabric is a type of stable knitted fabric with a plush pile on both sides. It extends along the cross grain, but not along the grain. Fleece is durable, insulating, soft, easy to wash and is made from polyester fiber.
It is used in the manufacture of jackets, hats, pants, hoodies and blankets, and the fibers can even be made in part from recycled plastic bottles. It is available in every print and color imaginable.

What is a PDF sewing pattern?
A PDF pattern is a sewing pattern designed on a computer and organized so that it can be printed on several sheets of letter or A4 size paper.
I love using PDF sewing patterns because if the pattern gets damaged or my kids or I have changed sizes, I can always print it again. It will never be destroyed since I have a digital version!
How to use a PDF sewing pattern?
Open the PDF on a computer and click Print. When printing, make sure the scaling is set to 100% or no scaling so that the design prints at the correct size.
Once the design is printed, it can be glued together to achieve its actual size. Then the pattern can be cut out for each size piece of the pattern or individual sizes can be traced so that the pattern can be used again and again. Learn how to use PDF sewing patterns.
