ME-Made-May 2012

Looking for trouble again, I have barely started the Pyjama Party challenge, and here I am again, signing up for another!  It is time to get more of my own creations out of the cupboard and out in the open.  Also time to get more made, but that’s another story all together.

I, Anne W, sign up as a participant of Me-Made-May ’12.  I will endeavour to wear as many handmade items (barring underwear and shoes!) each day as proves feasible on the day, for the duration of May 2012.

So, what exactly does that entail??  Well…  I cannot guarantee that everything I will wear will be made by me.  I do love my jeans, so there is no way I can remeve them from my wardrobe for a whole month, but apart from that, as long as the weather plays ball, I should have enough to last a month without substituting shop-bought stuff.  This challenge will hopefully make me think about how I wear things, what I combine and how I accessorise.  I might even figure out my “style”, something we all have problems with, as mentioned by Karen.

With only a week and a bit to go until May, who else has signed up?

I love fabric, and sewing. And I could do nothing else but sew, all day, every day, if I could!

  1. I’m going for the daily pieces- I am a jeans and fancy/foolish top girl, so thats where I’ll kick in the me mades. Also at bedtime of course- I’ll just overlap my challenges!

  2. I’m looking forward to seeing your creations during me-made May; I am a participant as well… Thank you so much for your lovely comment on my skirt 🙂

  3. I may join the pyjama party as that would give the excuse to use a lovely vintage pattern sent to me by Rhonda at sewbussted. Any excuse!
    Thanks for stopping by my blog and commenting. I love comments!
    P.S. My french seams usually have ‘whiskers’ but I’m working on that….

    1. Just trim back the first seam really well, I usually only leave about 3mm before sewing the final 5m seam. It does the trick 90% of the time. You should definitely join the pyjama party, the more the merrier!
