What materials did you use? Fleece

What are you most proud of? That I figured out how to put a zipper in and make the faux ribbed cuffs. Also that I made something I will actually wear. It's so cozy on cool mornings!

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Be patient. It's a learning experience. Re watch the instructions several times if you need to. I did.

How did the zipper installation go? I want to put one in mine, but I'm a little nervous...

It was pretty easy. Of course I learned some things. Put the top end of the zipper right next to the top of the hoodie. I put mine too far down and then had to add a button at the neck. Also when I split the pattern down the middle I added an extra 1/2 inch on each side to allow for turning the raw edges under over the zipper. I didn,t realize that that would also make the neck opening larger. As you can see, there's a lot of room around the neck opening. I usually wear a scarf in there. I'm sure there's a better way to do it!

It's great! Love the colour! I have not yet started mine. The zipper is a nice touch. I will not insert one in mine, I'm just going to go baby steps, lol.

It's great that you have made something you love to wear! Stabilising the sides of the zips an iron on fusible helps too. Congrats

What an interesting idea for your cuffs.

It was easy. The twin needle can do a lot of interesting things!
