MMM: Me-Made-May 2013

It's almost May so it must be almost Me-Made-May time again. I had a fabulous time last year, so I've signed up again.

Here we go,

'I, Leith of Sew Brunswick, sign up as a participant of Me-Made-May '13. I endeavour to wear only handmade garments (except cardigans, jeans & undergarments) for the duration of May 2013 and document it here at Sew Brunswick.'

I've decided to up the ante this year and wear only handmade garments with the exception of underwear, cardigans and jeans. There are a few reasons for this. First, I love my wool cardigans and will freeze if I can't wear them. Second, I don't wear jeans a lot so I'm not about to start sewing them. And thirdly, I thoroughly enjoyed last year's challenge where I pledged to wear one handmade garment every day. This, combined with the fact I sewed 91 garments last year means I really need to up the ante and wear my lovingly handmade garments all the time.

Who else is in?

  1. Well, Leith, I checked out your review of last years' MMM challenge and you've convinced me. I'm in for my first MMM. Looking forward to it!

  2. I'd been thinking about participating this year. I think I have garments to make it work so yes, I'm in. Looking forward to it!

  3. 91? Wow! I'm taking part for the first time this year - haven't decided on my pledge yet though.

  4. I'm really hesitant about whether or not to enter! As most stuff I make seems to end up being given away to family and friends I'm worried I won't have enough to wear myself!

  5. Great to see you doing it and upping the ante! I'm in again this year and pledging no panic sewing!
