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.
