Finding the chic in everyday life

I love eating, cooking, crafting, zumbaing, ice skating, and lots of other randomness.

Since December 2008, I've lost 15 lbs and I hope to continue my healthy habits of nutritious eating + frequent, fun exercising.

It turned out cute! Just say you meant to do that. :-) When I tried the fleece it kept wanting to grow. Happy Week.


I have to tell you that I considered myself a pretty experienced sewer, and polar fleece + satin binding = nightmare.

If you should feel like you need to do it again the best way is to sew the binding to the front ONLY of the fleece first, then use an invisible thread and sew it to the back.

Like binding a quilt, but without the handsewing the back of the binding on step.


Well, it looks great from here. I think fleece is REALLY tricky -- it stretches. They make you think it's simple, but it's not. But now you know that LOL!


But, what a cute little assistant you had to help you!

And a little boy will be cozy and warm... the more important thing...

Gah, after wasting 2 hours tryin to get the fleece IN the binding far enough, I quit, and am surfin the net to see HOW to do this...Glad to see others with the same issue..I bought the package of satin binding, now I think it will be eaiser to make some cotton binding and apply it the way I do to a quilt!


I think it is quite nice and cute. I know that fleece is always a little tricky. I think you have done an amazing job. :)

You need a walking foot when dealing with those aggrevating slippery fabrics. Here's a link to my wonderful, fantabulous sewing teacher, Leslie, showing how to put one on your machine and how they work.

Everyone Loves To wear Fleece

I like your writing. I have gotten some good information here.


So glad I found this site... My sewing skills are a bit rusty and I have never worked with fleece. Your posting with additional comments have addressed all my concerns and fears. I was beginning to think my skills were dustier than I thought! Thanx everyone for posting!

Fleece Blanket

Thanks for the info on your site. Not only is the blanket you have there really nice and well made, but I would even take the dog. Very cute!

Fleece Blanket

This is a very useful article. I do not think that I would have the patience to make a fleece blanket like this. You did a very good job. I am sure that the child that you made it for will like it.

I think you saved me! I was just about to purchase satin binding for my fleece blanket. Maybe now I'll try fleece binding (hard to find) or cotton.
