What are you most proud of? My cutting the sweatshirt to size worked, along Cindy's techniques, turned an unusable piece of clothing into one that will be worn frequently. What advice would you give someone starting this project? Follow Cindy's instructions and find a sweatshirt that fits for your first project. It will make the class easier. But I had to try and see if I could cut my sweatshirt to size. And if you do cut your sleeve width down to fit, make sure to allow more width if you intend to embroider around your wrists. You will stabilize it, and therefore lose the stretch of the knit fabric and may have a hard time slipping your hand through.
