Me-Made-May‘I, Margaret of sign up as a participant of Me-Made-May ’16. I endeavour to wear one item of handmade clothing or accessory each day for the duration of May 2016′

That’s it, I’ve done it, I’ve signed a pledge for Me-Made-May!

Me-Made-May is organised by Zoe on So Zo…What Do You Know? It’s a month long challenge to wear items you’ve made yourself, everyone write’s their own personal challenge so you can make it as hard or easy for yourself as you want, I always include accessories as a useful ‘get out of jail free’ card!

Butterick 6258I did it for the first time last year and I found it really useful at identifying gaps in my wardrobe. Last year my gap was tops, I had lots of skirts, no trousers (still no trousers!!) but very few tops. Over the summer I tried to rectify that, I’ve made several sleeveless tops and quite a few shirts. Last May I also hadn’t discovered knits either, all my cardigans will come in useful for layering up, May in Yorkshire is not necessarily that warm!

So if you fancy a bit of a challenge, sign up to Me-Made-May, it’s a bit of fun but I found it quite useful exercise too, I’ll try and take photo’s each day (if I can find a willing photographer!) and maybe do a weekly post to show you 🙂

About craftycreeky

I live in a busy market town in Yorkshire with my husband, kids, dogs and chickens. I love trying new crafts, rediscovering old ones, gardening, walking...anything creative really I started this blog after my New Year resolution worked so well. My resolution (the first one I've ever kept!) was to post a photograph of my garden on Facebook every day. My hope was that I would then see what was good in the garden and not just weeds and work, which was my tendency. The unexpected side-effect was that I have enjoyed many more hours in the garden. I am hoping that 'The Crafty Creek' will have the same effect. Happy creating!

  1. I’m really thinking of doing this too. What a great way to not only build up my wardrobe but also get lots of practicing making things. I’ve never heard of this so thanks for posting.
