There is *some* making going on. I have been knitting like a good ‘un, but it’s not very blogworthy. I am working towards doing a proper reveal during May, possibly even April. But seriously it’s just a boring black jumper. So don’t be getting all excited about it!
Consequently I need some quick and easy makes, to get my sew-jo running again.
And along comes the Me Made May Sign Up post. This is definitely something I want to do, and I’ve been trying to work out how I’m going to make it a challenge. The terms of my pledge will determine what kind of projects I put my attention to, so that I can make the challenge actually work.
My Me Made May last year reminded me that I do wear my makes, with considerable regularity, so a pledge along the lines of “wear at least one me made thing every day” was a bit too easy. It needs to be a challenge, so I need to ratchet it up somehow. I’m therefore pledging as follows:
I, Béa of Béa’s Sewing Adventures, sign up as a participant of Me-Made-May ’15. I will endeavour to wear Mostly Me Made each day for the duration of May 2015.
My intention is that I will wear whole outfits that are me-made or refashioned by me, rather than a single item of me-made clothing per day. I am excluding shoes, tights & undies and coats (as I don’t have any me-mades in those categories – maybe next year!), but as I usually wear skirts and tops, that will mean both the skirt and the top have to be me-made. If it’s cold and I need a jumper or cardigan, it’s going to have to be one I’ve made or refashioned. I will be recording what I wear on a spreadsheet and there will be pie-charts and graphs.
This is a bit of a toughie- I will need to make sure I have a couple more jumpers/cardigans available, hence the need to get that knitting finished, and ideally some more tops too.
Anyone else joining in the MMM fun this time round?
