Yay, it’s that time of year again!
‘I, Corrine of http://www.applebymakes.wordpress.com (@corrineapplebymakes), sign up as a participant of Me-Made-May ’17. I endeavour to wear a minimum of one me-made or refashioned garment each day for the duration of May 2017,and for one day a week to wear an outfit consisting of a minimum of two home made garments’.
This is my third year of Me Made May and now I think that it will be quite straightforward to wear something Me Made every day. It’s the outfit bit I’m going to struggle with as most of my hand made bits and bobs don’t actually go with each other! Off to a good start though for this week… Continue reading

Another catch up post from a project a while ago. There are quite a few websites with ‘easy’ construction woodworking projects that I tend to browse a lot but never make anything. One of these is Designs by Studio C (as I write this the website is down and this link doesn’t work but they are promising it will be back up soon). However, when I saw this project I really liked the look of it and fancied making it.
