Working with Fleece

• Use very sharp scissors to cut fleece. For a neat edge, cut 1 layer at a time.

• Fleece doesn't fray, so there's no need to finish edges. If you wish to do so, simply turn edges up or under and topstitch, or use texturized nylon thread and a wide, closely spaced stitch to serge.

• Use all-purpose polyester thread and a size 12/80 universal needle. Fleece dulls needles quickly, so keep replacements handy.
