"Adventures With Polar Fleece" consists of three major sections: a) introduction to fleece fabric and sewing tools, b) construction techniques, and c) sample projects.

Where this book really shines is in the construction techniques, e.g. how to add wrapped zippers, elastic cuffs, etc. It's a wonderful collection of little tips that work best with fleece & suede but can be transferred to other materials as well.

Although there are a number of coats, my favorites are the sweatshirt look and the Baby Snuggle Wrap.
