I've put a lot thought in to my pledge for Me-Made-May this year. I didn't want to do it just because it was there, so I've thought about the time I have and what's realistic as well as challenging.
My basic pledge is,
'I, Philippa of Gloria & Me, sign up as a participant of Me-Made-May '14. I endeavour to wear 1 self stitched garment 5 days of the week for the duration of May 2014'.
* I will complete any outstanding alterations/repairs/refashions promised to my daughter (blush!) before starting any new projects and in any event before the end of May;
* I will finish the sewing on my list so that I have enough basics before I undertake any new projects (this means sewing an apron and a denim skirt - the long sleeved t- shirts are complete and will be blogged soon), and complete them before the end of May. I know Me-Made-May is primarily about making the most of what you already have, but I think it will give me the extra motivation I need;
* I will blog all completed items before I start any new projects and publish the posts before the end of May.
Also, I'm tailoring my participation in light of last year's experiences.
* I will post one photograph per week on the Flickr group, and put one round up post at the end of the month on my blog (unless I find something stunningly original to say). I may put more photos on the Flickr group, but I will not feel bad if I can't achieve this.
Next year I would love to have enough me-made clothes to pledge wearing them seven days a week - we will see! In the meantime, I can't wait to share the ups (and potentially, downs!) of Me-Made-May with you all :)
Happy Me-Made-May you guys!
