What advice would you give someone starting this project? To consider the first time a practice run and go slowly from start to finish --and the second time will move more quickly and be more satisfying overall....I also think with the 4/4 cotton(4 ply) that wet finishing it with very hot water, agitation and drying in the dryer initially firms up the cloth as opposed to my first ones in which I used warm water, hand agitated and air dried. Doing a few samples using different wash techniques would have given me better information at the onset.
