‘I, Margaret of https://thecraftycreek.com 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!
I 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 🙂
