well I am extremely disappointed to say that red fleece does bleed.  grrr.  I really thought since it was 100% poly it would not.  Darn it, I knew I should have bought the gray for the backing, but the red backing was just so pretty/warm/snuggly.  2 of the 4 white fabrics attracted it like crazy (fortunately not the star).  I soaked it 3 times and it isn't working.  I'm letting it air dry now and will see what my friend thinks.  I really don't want to make another one.  I'm hoping that as it dries they will look less pink.

 

Wow, I had no idea that fleece would bleed.

gee...that is disappointing...who knew fleece could bleed. Yikes.. Most of my fleece backings have been pretty light colored but I have one purple one that could be trouble.

from the picture it almost looks like its a variety of beige.

Who knows..maybe he will think it looks great.

Oh, no!! I am so sorry that happened.  I just imagine how your heart sank when you pulled it out of the wash.  I had a red flannel that never would stop bleeding after several washings.  Ended up cutting it up for rags.
