did you use dylon hand fabric dye? most of the time fleece uses acid dyes. even kool aid or food dye + an acid(fruit fresh, vinegar, citric acid) followed by heat setting it and cooling it down slowly and handling it carefully to prevent felting, is what i do. hope that somewhat helps. there is also how do i Dye XX or something in in the forums, check it out, it might help.
