I'm not a bad hand sewer, do you think this is do able?
I'm sewing fleece. Should I use a particular thread? I've never used fleece before.
Am stuffing it with an old sheet.
Any advice much appreciated.

I don't think that you will have any problems but leave one end not to firmly stitched so that you can take out the stuffing when you want to wash the draught excluder

Sewed my fleece with button thread, and arranged to have enough extra at both ends to tie ribbon round after stitching, then cut 4cm fringe to finish, as fleece doesn't fray.
