01 May Merry, Merry Month of May
Make that the Merry, Merry
After sewing almost non-stop for over a year and a half, I’m ready to take the Me-Made-May’13 challenge created by the cute, creative and energetic Zoe from SoZoWhatDoYouKnow.
Her challenge now in its fourth year has gained strength and momentum with over 440 participants. In case you don’t know, the challenge is a celebration of the efforts we pour into creating our clothes by pledging to wear our handmade garments. Participants design their own pledge based on their comfort level. I pledge to wear one handmade garment made by me everyday during the month of May.
I decided to begin Me-Made-May ’13 by wearing the first top I made during my RTW Fast. I was too shy to model it on my September 15, 2011 blog post so here it is today.
It’s New Look 6964 blogged here. I think I’ve come a long way in many respects, but will always appreciate this peasant top despite its shortcomings.
Don’t worry – I’m not going to publish a post everyday about what I’m wearing this month. I have, however created a page found at the top of the blog that I’ll keep updated.
Cheers to all of us sewing enthusiasts!
May our creative energies make the world a better place!
