Gulp… Yesterday I signed up for Me-Made-May. Should be interesting!
I’m sure the vast majority of you know what that is but in case you don’t you can find out here.
This is my pledge:
‘I, Corrine of applebymakes.wordpress.com, sign up as a participant of Me-Made-May ’15. I endeavour to wear at least one me-made knitted, sewn or refashioned garment, or accessory, each day for the duration of May 2015’
Note the clever use of the word ‘accessory’. I Have saved a few scarves and hair scrunchies (yes I’m living in the 90s) just in case of emergencies!
This will be a big challenge for me. I certainly have not got enough separate garments to be able to wear a different one for each day but I think I can do it. People are going to see me wear some strange things over the coming month. For example:
A hand knitted tank top made from wool (make that cheap acrylic) bought in the early 90s when I was at Sixth Form College. I made this top a few years ago now. It’s far too big for me as you can see but I was kept snuggly warm all day!
I’ll hopefully remember to take photos each day and round stuff up every week or so. Good luck all other Me-Made-Mayers!
