Me Made May 2016

Well, you've probably guessed by the hulking great Me Made May image above, but hey, I've signed up for Made May 2016 and here's what I've said I'll do:

'I, Joyce of http://thestorysewfar.blogspot.co.uk/, sign up as a participant of Me-Made-May '16. I endeavour to wear at least one of my me-made items every day for the duration of May 2016'

I'm raising the bar on last years challenge. Bring on May!


I feel I've got enough me-made clothes to be able to promise to wear one garment every day throughout May. It's certainly helped by making a few pairs of Named Jamie jeans! Now I can wear me-mades 7 days a week. Last year I promised to wear 3 items of me-mades each week, which I'm happy to say I did. That was my first year of participating in Me Made May. I'm looking forward to doing this challenge again so if you're even remotely thinking about it, head over to Zoe's blog and make some kind of rash promise that you may or may not keep! Life happens after all and this should be a fun challenge, not something to worry about. 

I don't know how I'm going to document what I wear each day, maybe a list of links with the occasional photo? Just don't know yet but there's plenty of time to decide.

Have you signed up already? Are you swithering? Go, on, there's over 100 people signed up already! You'll be among mostly sewing friends plus a sprinkling of knitting folks too...and they're all lovely!

    1. Thanks, Helen. Are you doing Me Made May this year? There's nothing like giving yourself a challenge! Yes, I'm going to be a guest blogger on 31st July for the Vintage Pattern Pledge....just waiting for better weather so I can photograph my 'make'...could be a long wait!
