creative noodling

Now that my pants that will never fit are pretty much done, I'm planning my next sewing projects. I'm thinking I'll go for club wear next. First up will be some arm warmers made of microfibre; I sweat when I dance, so I need something that will dry quickly. I'll need to find somewhere to buy microfibre stuff first, but I figure somewhere on Queen West will have it.

After that, I have an idea for a sash. It'd be about 3 inches wide, with a lot of pockets on the inside so I could hold ID, keys, and some cash in there. The plan is to use one piece of black fabric folded over, and on the other side, a piece of fluorescent green or yellow fabric sticking out the bottom (so it would be black with a day glo stripe at the bottom.) I think it'd go well with the wrap pants I bought last weekend. I'm trying to decide if I should try to be hardcore and do welt pockets, or just stitch pouches to the main part of the sash, and if I need to have some or all of the pockets button/snap/velcro shut to avoid stuff falling out.
