Video: Sewing neon bright workout clothes

Another Sunday, another video! This time I’m talking about my latest activewear plans and how I’ve (accidentally) moved on from neutrals to neon bright styles. What are your feelings on neutrals vs. bright colours on your workout wear? In Sweden, high-viz is all the rage, which has probably helped me sway in this new direction (though I still love my neutrals!).

Speaking of my Sunday sewing videos, I’ve now uploaded a video a week for over two years! That’s crazy to think about and some weeks I have no idea how I managed to pull it through. Once I get my coverstitch book published in the spring next year, I would love to step-up my video making game and try more creative forms of storytelling and such. Making videos is like sewing, there are always new things to try and learn.
