I was doing some custom flare darts tonight on some tricky fabrics that was slippery and smudged chalk well, when I got fed up with the methods I was taught. So what did I do? I thought about how I could do it in a better way and here was what I came up with. I’m not saying this is new or unique. I just haven’t seen it or taught it, and I came up with it all on my own. Works like a charm, I’m happy to report! Why didn’t anybody ever teach or told me about this??? This is the way it SHOULD be done, not to sound arrogant or anything! It is just that much better!

This was a sewing therapy project. That’s therapy from sewing sort of project, not sewing project as therapy for something else.
Oh, have I ever talked to you about my therapy projects?
Those are simpler project I go to when I get frustrated or mess up with my sewing, so as to get something done right and move in the right direction again. Currently, I don’t have many patterns to which I can do that as a straightforward project, so “simpler” is still a bit relative to including some fitting and/or design. That was the case with this project as I altered a pretty good scrubs pattern I had fitted for myself.
Running gear is so boring, yet spandex can be so crazy, even if most of the crazy stuff isn’t the “proper” wicking kind for running gear. But from my experience, the wicking stuff ain’t all that great unless you’re gonna be standing around in cold weather after you’re done your run without additional clothing. It’s not like a lot of the spandex holds a lot of water. For this reason, I have committed myself to making the most interesting running wardrobe in at least Canada, for myself! I already have the NIGHTWING body suit and GATORSNAKE and TOXIC long tights for starters. Given summer is coming, though, I needed short running tights and I came up with these NEBULOUS tights below.
