Me-Made-May’14 – Let’s See What I’ve Learnt

MMM'14 - All Outfits

My pledge was: I, Jennie of, sign up as a participant of Me-Made-May ’14. I endeavour to wear at least one handmade/refashioned item five days/week for the duration of May 2014 & to finish all of my current UFO’s by the 31st of May.

For my first Me-Made-May I think I’ve done pretty well, worn one handmade item almost everyday in May. I haven’t finished all my current UFO’s, I’ve got two or three left, but I did finish most of them.
So what have I learnt from the past month? I like my tees & I don’t really mind taking outfit photos everyday. I really need to make more trousers & a few pairs of shorts, I’d like to try to make some lingerie. I’d also like to have a few more shirts/blouses, at least one blazer & I need a spring/autumn jacket. I certainly have enough fabric in my stash to make all the things I feel I’m missing in my wardrobe ;)

I’ve really enjoyed participating in Me-Made-May & will definitely join in next year.
It’s been fun following everyone, I feel inspired to try some new styles, I’ve found some new blogs to follow & hopefully some new friends! :D
I’m so jealous of all the cute handmade cardigans, that I’m teaching myself to knit again.
I was ok at knitting about 20 years ago when I was a teen, so I’m joining a knit-along & making a cardigan, at least I hope that’s what I’ll do ;)
