The Fear Fabric Challenge!

It's that time of year again! Time for the Fear Fabric Challenge! I admit, with a new baby I've totally slacked and done nothing to make this an event like in years past. But I hope you'll still play along! All you have to do is choose a fabric that scares you, and sew something. I've previously sewn brocade and lace, and learned a lot from those challenges. This year I'm tackling a finicky monster--faux fur!

I've sewn faux fur once before, and I'm pretty sure it broke my walking foot. So I've had good reason to avoid it. But it's time to get over my fears and try again. As Daniel Tiger says, "just keep trying, and you'll get better". Good advice whether you're 3 or 30. I'll be posting my creation at the end of October.

And a little housekeeping, my husband is on vacation this week, so you won't be seeing any more of me. Hooray for awesome fall weather (oh hey, and it's our anniversary...better get on that...).

Will you be participating in the Fear Fabric Challenge? What fabric scares you?


  1. Happy Anniversary!!!

    Oh faux fur; you are brave!!! I'm not sure I have a fabric fear to focus on this year. Boooo!

  2. Yes! Stretch lame and tulle! For a dog costume! Have a great week and happy anniversary!

  3. Faux fur really is scary! I'll have to try to come up with something that is new to me but that I still will wear...


I would love to hear from you! Please feel free to comment below.
