I've been using fleece in the Rose Pincushion Cuff for a while now--probably a few years at this point!
Somewhere in the almost 10-years of blog posts here, there is a post mentioning the measurements for substituting fleece for the batting piece D, but finding it is proving tricky--even for me! So it's time for a post dedicated exclusively to using fleece in the cuff.
You might be wondering why I'm using fleece, and really the only reason is I bought a bolt of fleece. A bolt of fleece is A LOT of fleece. Any place fleece can be substituted for batting, it's happening.
Since the fleece (Pellon 987F) isn't as dense as batting, it needs to be larger than the piece D for the batting in the pattern. If you make your fleece the size given below, it will end up being two layers thick once the cuff is folded. But you only need to cut one piece of fleece this size--pressing and folding the cuff in 5.a is what makes it two layers thick.
The dimensions for the piece are 3.25" wide x 7.75" high (8.25cm x 19.7cm), or click the link below to download the pattern piece.
Center the fleece piece on the WS of piece E and apply it before step #5, and then continue on with step 5.a.
The cuff will be puffy, but stitching some rows through the middle after edgestitching in 5.i will flatten it out some.
