    Dang Fleece

    Ok, it was really operator error. I sewed fleece thinking the wrong side was the right side. I'm not the first person to do that am I?

    Do you use your walking foot to sew fleece?

    I piece quilts but this was a doll outfit for my daughter.

    You paid for both sides, so use the one you like.

    I don't think it matters which side you use as long as you are happy with it!
    People who start projects and never finish them are cooler
    than people who never start projects at all.

    I always use the side I think looks best. I have never used a walking foot on it but now that you have brought it to my attention I think I will try it, sounds like it might work very well.

    I just to make sure I use the same side throughout. I'm trying to remember which is which but if you pull gently on the cross grain it will curl ... I think to the right side? I'd have to test it out for sure but it certainly helps to be sure you're using the same side consistently.

    If you like it and use the same side throughout, it shouldn't matter.

    No one will know but you. I use a lot of fleece for double layer fleece mitts and hats and sometimes the print is a little softer or muted on the wrong side. Just make sure that you use all the same side and have the stretch going across not up and down.

    I often pin the pattern to one side or tother to keep the seams from going backwards. Doesn't matter which.

    Do you enlarge the stitch to prevent it snapping if the seam gets pulled?

    Just an FYI, as long as you use the 'same' side consistently on an item it's fine. BUT, to tell which is the outside, if you will take the cut edge, pull it just a smidge, the edge will roll in, that 'in' side is wrong side...If that is confusing, just try a piece and I think you can see what I'm 'splainin'...lolo

    I do use a walking foot, it just makes things sew better. I do use a stretchy stitch most times, if you don't have that stitch, just lengthen your stitch a wee bit.
