What is the proper way to make this flange?

Hi there. I'm completing the TooTallToby practice challenges to brush up on my OnShape skills. I have almost no experience with sheet metal, so the parts that use that have been tricky for me.

The way I made this was first creating a flange much too large for my needs, then sketching on it and cutting away the negative space.


Is that the proper way to make this part, or is there some way I can "extrude" a sketch into a sheet metal part?
