Me-Made-May 2013

Two posts in one day! Whaaat? NBD. And you would know faster if you followed me on Bloglovin--->

It's coming up on one year since I was given my sewing machine and starting on this crazy journey, and all throughout the last year I've read about Me Made May. Obviously, I missed it last year since I was only just beginning to sew, but I've been looking forward to it and wondering if I would have enough items made to be able to participate. The great thing about it (now that I've read the post over at So, Zo) is that you can customize your pledge to fit whatever needs you have. Some people pledge to wear items with no repeats, but I'm nowhere near there in terms of quantity of garments. So, here's my pledge:

I, Beth Byrge of 110 Creations, sign up as a participant of Me-Made-May '13. I endeavor to wear at least one handmade or repurposed item each day for the duration of May 2013.

Notice I threw "repurposed" in there. I don't have anything in particular in mind, but I wanted to give myself a bail out in case I needed to upcycle something quickly! Also, I'll confess that "handmade item" might sometimes mean "headband" or "bracelet". I hope nobody calls me a cheater cheater pumpkin eater, but like I said, I honestly don't know if I have enough me-made clothing to keep this interesting. But I won't be clogging the Flickr group with a bunch of headbands, don't worry. I'll do my best to make it garment-centered. My current plan is to post a weekly round-up of photos on Fridays in May.

Are you participating in Me Made May?
