Since my serger is still out of commission and in need of a visit to the shop, I decided to sew with snuggly fleece this weekend. I had a large piece of pink Valentine's day fleece that was just taking up room in my studio. My daughter has a blanket made out of the very same fabric, and she LOVES it. I figured I'd make a size 3 pullover. That way she would be able to use it this year and probably next year, too. The pattern I chose is Burda 9771, and it went together without a hitch. Sewing with fleece is so easy, sort of like baking with a cake mix...but I still miss my serger. Wah!
