This week's episode is launching a month of commitment to my Handmade Wardrobe. I'm planning lots of making over the coming month so that I can have much more handmade goodness in both mine and the Tot's wardrobe.
Me-Made-May (#mmmay15) is a challenge designed to encourage people who sew/knit/crochet/refashion/upcycle garments for themselves to actually wear and love them. The me-made and self-stitched challenges have been taking place for five years now and they work on both a personal and community level. The participants decide the specifics of their own challenge pledge, so that the month is appropriate and challenging for them. For example, a very common pledge is for a participant to aim to wear one self-stitched or refashioned garment each day for the duration of May 2015. The participants can also choose to document their challenge with daily photos (though this is in no way compulsory for taking part) and share them with other participants.
It means I'm turning to more wearable sweaters and double (triple?) dipping with some KALs I'm currently excited by. There's the lovely Knit With Attitude Summer Top KAL, the ongoing Sweater a Season KAL and Curious Handmade and I have just launched a Muse Volume 2 KAL to explore beginnings with all our muses.
