I went to a class at a sewing expo where the instructor (Emma Seabrooke) says she stocks up on swimsuit fabric at Jo-ann's which she uses to bind her knits.
I have some of that stretch binding for fleece. I bought it at Jo-ann's in the elastic section. You might want to check that section if you didn't already. I haven't bought any recently so I don't know if they still sell it.

Oh, I really encourage you to make a fleece jacket. They are so much fun! Fleece is easy to sew and you can be creative with trim or adding a little zip to the design. If you can take a look at Rochelle Harper's Sew the New Fleece you'll have scads of ideas. Just make sure you have Wonder Tape on hand for the zippers.
