Here are some details about my project:

What materials did you use? Two long sleeve knit shirts I got for $1.99 each

What are you most proud of? I'm struggling with them. Not sure I like them. Flatlocking is hard I always seem to have like an inch that doesn't catch on both piece. Wow! I took the orange one apart and fixed it! Made the hat and hatband too

What advice would you give someone starting this project? I cut all the pieces and didn't do a good job of keeping the parts separate, so I accidentally sewed the wrong part to orange shirt and had to make it work.

I love your fearless courage! I gotta get me some of that! ;) Fun idea! Thanks for sharing.

I keep telling my teacher at the college that my favorite thing about Craftsy classes is they constantly tell us "there are no mistakes" and sometimes a mistake becomes your favorite part. It's just that sometimes you fight a project to completion and other times you cruise right thru. I have a mosaic friend that doesn't finish what she starts for lack of courage. I am afraid not to finish. It all had an ugly phase and you will always see something you can fix, but you cannot deny your feelings.

Thank you and I agree. I fixed the worst part of the orange shirt and it's fine now. I'm taking a class at the local JC and she loved it. She also solve my construction. Thanks you guys. I love the support I get here.
