I, Adriana of Adri Makes a Thing or Two, sign up as a participant of Me-Made-May 2013. I pledge to wear at least 1 hand-made/up-cycled item 4 days a week for the duration of the month of May.
I took the plunge!
There it is! Plunge taken. Every year I see wonderful outfits and things that people have made, and I always miss the cut-off dates to join in the Me-Made-May challenge. So, this year I made sure to note the calendar dates and be sure to join in. If you'd like to learn more about the challenge, click on the button "Me-Made-May '13" above.
This is May 1st's outfit...
Item 1 is a knitted cowl I made this year.
Item 2 is the plaid skirt I made for last year's Sew Weekly childhood challenge.
I'm hoping to get some use out of the many items I make and try to rotate them a bit. Does that happen when you make something too? You start to like the look of something and then forget the rest of the clothes in the closet. Perhaps, this challenge will get me to purge a few of the non-flattering items in my repertoire.
