Fleece Hoodie

Project Description

What are you most proud of? Having a go with my new overlocker and cover stitch machines - watching the class gave the confidence to try! Thanks Meg!! What advice would you give someone starting this project? Use the video notes - they are really useful for bookmarking points in the construction that you will want to watch again.

What you will need

  • Polar fleece

Looks great. My next hoodie will be turquoise fleece in a cloud type print. I've already got the fabric bought.
LesleyUK answered:
Thanks! Turquoise is my favourite colour, so I will look forward to seeing your next hoodie :)
Lynne O asked:
Wow, I just hope mine is half as nice as yours!
LesleyUK answered:
Thanks Lynne, Yours will be great I look forward to seeing it. The classes are great aren't they - I love it that you can just watch something again if you are unsure.
monique11 asked:
This is a beautiful shade and looks very professionally made. Will you tell us about your fabric choice please?
LesleyUK answered:
Thank you! The fabric is a polyester polar fleece, as I wanted the fleece for gardening and this kind of fabric dries really quickly. It looks the same on both sides so I put a pin in the side I had decided was the "right side" on all the pieces just in case there was a slight difference that was hard to see. I did wonder if it would not be as nice to sew with as the cotton fleece but actually it was great to work with. Hope that helps - Lesley :)
