Me-Made-May!

‘I, Kelly of Cut Cut Sew, sign up as a participant of Me-Made-May ’13. I endeavour to wear one handmade garment each day for the duration of May 2013’

Yay!  It’s my first time participating in Me-Made-May!  I am excited…and a little nervous!  I usually wear a lot of handmade items anyway, but making a conscious effort to wear something handmade every day will be a fun challenge.  I also hope it will help me figure out what items are lacking in my wardrobe, and I am also going to refashion some of the handmade items that sit in my closet and don’t get a lot of wear.  I am going to try to take a picture everyday, but I am not focusing on that aspect of it because I didn’t want that to keep me from participating.

Are you joining in for Me-Made-May this year?  If you have done it before, what was the hardest part, and what did you learn?  Any advice for a newbie?

Kid’s Clothes Week Wrap Up
