34 Incredible Fleece Craft Ideas

Updated on November 3, 2016

I love arts and crafts. I used to volunteer teach an elementary art class and love sharing tutorials for fun crafts to make with kids.

For fast and easy craft projects, use fleece. One of the really great things about using fleece, is that the edges don’t ravel. Therefore, you can make beautiful sew, or no-sew, craft projects without having to spend time hemming and finishing seams. Fleece is super easy to use, so it is a great fabric for kids, teenagers and adults.

I’ve been on a thorough search for fleece craft project ideas that include not only a picture, but also patterns and tutorials. All of the fleece crafts that you’ll find here answer the criteria.

You’ll find sewing projects for your own use, to give as gifts and to sell. I hope that you’ll find a few ideas here to help you with your polar fleece crafts.

To make the beautiful fleece cardigan shown here, go to Scattered Thoughts of a Crafty Mom

1. Monster Pillow

Who wouldn't love to receive a monster pillow as a gift? Any aged person, whether a little kid or a grandparent, will appreciate the love included in a handmade gift. For the tutorial for this project, go to Greene Acres Hobby Farm.

2. Hooded Baby Wrap

This is a perfect gift to give to a new mother at a baby shower. She'll think of you every time she tenderly wraps her precious baby in this hooded wrap. The tutorial for making this baby wrap is found at the JOANN site.

For a really attractive way to present a bottle of wine, is to give it wrapped in a fleece gift bag. A nice bag that can be reused time and again. You'll find the tutorial at instructables.



4. Elf Slippers

You might make these for Christmas gifts, but I imagine they'll keep many toes toasty for many more days of the year. The directions for making these elf slippers is found at maya*made.

It could be used on a shelf or mantel as shown in the photo, or it could be used as a pillow. Unstuffed it could be used to hold a gift or as a door hanging. Follow the instructions at the IDEA ROOM to make a snowman for yourself.

I believe a flower petal pillow would be a nice gift to make and to give to a teenaged girl. This elegant flower pedal pillow can be made by following the tutorial at Come Together Kids.

Fleece is so nice and fluffy, and warm, that the fabric is perfect for making mittens. Find out how easy it is to make mittens from fleece by going to the Make It & Love It site for the tutorial.
