What are you most proud of? I finished it in one day. One long day.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Don't use quilting cotton. That's all I could find at JoAnn's and Hobby Lobby. It doesn't drape well and feels really stiff even after several washes. That's okay, because it's just something to throw on when I take the dog out in the morning so I won't scare the neighbors.

Cute. Nice and bright. Reminds me of sunshine. Creative, too -- I have the book and would never have thought to convert the cardigan into a robe. Well done.

Thanks! I got the idea from another Craftsy project by Jill Mandy. So I can't take credit for the idea. But I love my robe. It's cool and comfortable and reminds me of sunshine, too.

A ray of sunshine in the morning. Very pretty.
