I have made a lot of things out of fleece. Hats, gauntlets (wrist warmers), pillows and cat beds, a few handbags, etc.. I intend to do less with fleece and more with other fabrics, gradually.
Washing / Drying Fleece Items
Machine wash/dry is fine but avoid high heat, and avoid bleach. Pillows stuffed with scraps may need a little extra time to finish air-drying, but they do dry very well.
