What are you most proud of? His new hat. The pattern didn't provide one and at first I went with it. I just wasn't happy with his bare head so I fashioned him one. He is stylin' now to go to the 'snow' ball with the misses. LOL What advice would you give someone starting this project? Watch all the videos and read all the books you can about applique before beginning a project like this. Save yourself a lot of headaches and guess work.
