Just sneaking in at the last minute, I will be taking part in Me-Made-May’15!
I sign up as a participant of Me-Made-May ’15. I endeavour to wear at least two homemade items of clothing or accessories each week for the duration of May 2015.
I’m aware that Me-Made-May has been happening for a few years, but this is the first time I’m taking part. I don’t have enough homemade items to wear something homemade every day for the whole of May, as a lot of people have pledged. However I plan to use this challenge as a way to sort out my wardrobe.
- I want to weed out the homemade clothes I never wear and only keep the ones I think I will actually use. Some of my earlier (slightly wonky and unevenly stitched) makes hide in a corner of the wardrobe never to be used. Some of them I just don’t wear because I’m lazy and I hate ironing.
- I hope to also work out which items of clothing I’m lacking so I can plan what to make more of. I already know that I tend to make things out of patterned fabric so everything clashes!
I’ll take some pictures and do a round up on the blog at the end of the month, as well as come up with some sewing ideas for the next year.
Wish me luck!
