how to use up leftover fleece

Fleece is one type of fabric that I just love.

Maybe it’s the texture of it…maybe the warmth…or maybe that fact that it reminds me of a lumberjack and for some reason, I have a soft spot in my heart from them…but I just love using fleece.

Throughout the years, I’ve used it for a ton of different projects. I’ve created jackets, pillows, hats, animal clothing…you name it, I’ve made it!

Fleece is durable, warm, soft and can easily be cut and sewn to create a wide variety of projects.

I’ve cut it, glued it, tied it, knotted it…and truly created useful things out of it that I never thought possible.

I’ll just admit it. I’m addicted to creating with fleece. There. I’ve said it. And with these easy fleece sewing projects, you may just become addicted right along with me.,lol.

While there may not be a “Fleece Support Group” just yet, I can assure you that there’s a reason that fleece is such a trusted and used fabric in creating some really cool projects.

And if you’ve ever stepped inside a fabric store, you know that the walls and shelves are just lined with fleece that is calling your name to take them home.

Trust me, fleece talks, especially during all of the fleece sales events! It’s how I’m accumulated the mass amount of fleece sitting in my craft room at home.

However, the good news is, I’ve rounded up 37 great fleece project ideas that will put good use to all that fleece and you’ll love the outcome and look of the finished products.

  1. Great ideas. I have at least 12 huge bins & I need to use it up so I will be making several of your ideas. I can’t tell which pieces of fleece is no pill. I don’t want to spend too much time on something special to find out later it pulls up! I will check out your other ideas👍

  2. I love all these ideas my goal is to handmade all Christmas gifts this year.

  3. Shared this super list with my “quiltee friends” who may have had sewing withdrawal during annual family times, fabulous meals, and the holiday scene. Thanks so much for your collection.

  4. I just found that you can use the polyester fleece as a replacement for paper towels. Because of the fiber content mine have not stained at all. They totally rinse clear. Then again because of thr fiber content, they drain really fast which kerps down mildew.

    Yes, I loved all the ideas as well. The beanies are adorable.

  5. I liked absolutely everything. I’ve saved all the scraps from my blanket making, all the scraps from hat making so I have many, many scraps. All these patterns will truly come in good use , thank u so much. Yep, there needs to b a group on Facebook to support us fleecers.

  6. The Swiffer replacements were just what was needed, but make sure they are washed before using.

  7. I’m so glad I found this! I agree that there needs to be a group for fleece lovers! I’ve been making blankets as gifts and with my church group and donated them to a women’s shelter. I save ALL the scraps for “someday”. Now I can use them up! Thanks for the great ideas!!

  8. Fun projects and some will work with minimal equipment. A couple of small projects are sewing enough tiny pieces on a string until you have enough to make a wreath ornament for your tree., some people have made ‘monster’ soft toys and your tiny pieces can be used to make the faces, arms etc. the eyeglass case uses a small amount of fabric. THAnks for the great list, I especially liked the children’s hats.

  9. I saved the links for the knotted fleece pillow, the no sew heart pillow and the no sew rainbow scarf. Thanks!

  10. I loved all the ideas. But what if you’ve got smaller scraps? Thanks!!

  11. Love all the great ideas especially the 2 Swiffer ones!
