What materials did you use? I picked up this fleece fabric in the clearance at Hancock fabrics for $3 per yard. It cost less than $10 to make.

What are you most proud of? That I am getting back into sewing after being away from it for nearly 20 years.

Great job! Keep doing them. Add some embellishments too.

I'm not really an embellishments kind of gal but I'll think about it. ;-)

Looks great...did you cut the pattern straighter at the hips. I noticed there is quite a flair at the bottom of the hoodie pattern and although I thinks it's cute, I would prefer mine to fit a bit flatter at the sides. Any suggestions?

I didn't cut this one straighter but have considered doing so in the future.

Very Pretty! I like the color and the style. You did a great job!

Thank you. :-) I'm actually wearing it as I type.

So there is hope! I have a Singer from the 60s that I use the walking foot for straight stiching quilts. The opening will not accomidate a zig zag so I feel stuck. What kind of stitch are you using for sewing with kits? Also, Meg switched to a different stitch ( I think) for around the face/opening of the hoodie. Did you do different stitches on your hoodie? Also, I wanted to sew down the seams - did you, if so what stitch did you use?

I am using a regular narrow zig zag for the seams and 2 rows of zig zag for the top stitching.
