Since it’s already May 1, I’ll make this quick. (Technically, I already got started.)
I, Angela of Pans & Needles, am signing up for Me Made May 2016 with the goal of wearing a me-made garment five days a week. I will endeavour to post a photo each day on Instagram.
A few caveats/details: When I say “garments” I don’t mean accessories, so socks and shawls don’t count. In addition to the clothing-specific part of my plans this month, I have a couple of other goals: First, I intend to blog every week! I know I’ve said that before, but in this case, I have a little backlog of finished items to write about, so if nothing else, those should see me through.
My other plan for the month is to actually make a couple of things. My knitting plans this month are all gift-related, but I do want to carve out some sewing time. I always get a little more drawn to sewing when the weather warms up, and this year is no exception. I have plans for a couple of tops, but since bottoms are a real hole in my hand-made wardrobe, I think I should probably plan to make a skirt too.
Are you participating this year?
I’m excited to see all your outfits! One day I will have enough handmade garments to wear one every day.
Thanks, Becca! It is a definite challenge, but that’s what makes it fun/useful for me. I feel like I’m adding something new to my to-make list every day!
way to go!! I have been seeing all sorts of me made may stuff blowing up my instagram, looks like it’s going to be great! And your new sweater looks fab.
Thanks, Julie! The Instagram part is the weirdest for me, since I am not especially prone to selfies, but I’m finding it really useful this year! I need to think about it more first, but I’m going to write something about it.
