The theme for February's MAGAM Challenge is Freaky Fearful February - meaning - sew something that scares you.
My particular sewing fear is working with lycra fabric to make workout wear. I attempted it once, but was unhappy with the results and was a bit fearful during my yoga practice that my backside would rip out and I'd be showing off more than my inability to hold Plank for longer than a few seconds. Well - since that time, I'm happy to say that my yoga has improved and we'll see if my sewing ability has too!
So - I guess it's time to now face that workout wear fear and give it another go. I have several fabrics to select from already in the stash. I have quite a bit of the black and white fabric on the left so I might use that one for my practice pair.
As far as patterns to choose from, I just purchased two new ones to try. Kwik Sew 4163:
And Butterick 6295:
I like the cell phone pocket on the Butterick pants and the top as well, but I might start with the Kwik Sew pants first and avoid the complication of the pocket for my first try.
Anyways, just a short post today.
Wish me luck!
