Me-Made-May '12


"I, Marie of A Sewing Odyssey, sign up as a participant of Me-Made-May '12. I endeavour to wear a self-made accessory or item of clothing for at least three days a week for the duration of May 2012."

So I met up with some awesome sewing bloggers in Walthamstow today (more on that tomorrow) and after some bullying encouragement from Zoe, I decided to join Me-Made-May '12 – the only official month of its kind taking place this year! I'm breaking myself in gently as I don't think I have enough self-made clothes that I actually wear to see me through an entire month...but here's hoping I exceed my expectations. I'm very excited to take part as I've always loved seeing people's outfit posts and daydreaming of one day joining in!

Just pop along over to So, Zo...What do you know? if you want to find out more about the challenge and to sign up.

Are you in?

  1. I am also doing this! I don't have enough for something new everyday so there will be lots of repeats but I really want to try too!

    1. It's be an experience for us both and will hopefully highlight gaps in our wardrobes etc ;o)

    1. Most of the things I've made end up in the 'to-never-wear-pile' for one reason or another! But I'll do my best and see what happens ;o)

  6. I was totally NOT bullying! You'll give me a bad rep chica! So glad you're on board. May I remind you that you just managed a flawless self-stitched week for the OWOP! project?! You'll be fine and hopefully have heaps of fun

  7. I need to sign up. I am still deciding how I want to do it: 3 days, 4 days, yes or no to refashioned clothes, etc.

    Looking forward to your outfits!

  8. I'm a first timer too! I found your blog through Tilly's OWOP roundup, and I love your Renfrew's. Very inspiring as I don't have a lot of practical me-mades, which is going to make the challenge, err, challenging! I was tempted to do 4 days a week but my husband pressured me into the full week, hahaha.
