‘I, Meris, sign up as a participant of Me-Made-May ’12. I endeavour to wear at least two different handmade* garments or accessories each week for the duration of May 2012.’
*Ideally these will be handmade by ME, but in a pinch I do have a couple items (a pair of earrings, a scarf) that were handmade gifts from friends. Handmade can also include refashioned, and upcycled items.
I watched a couple bloggers do this last year when I had no handmade garments on hand. I still don’t have a large number (hence my 2-items per week handicap), but I wanted to dive in this year to give myself a push. To meet my challenge, I will need to finish my three “in-progress” projects before month’s end, and possibly start a couple more. I am also hoping to use this as a means to explore my wardrobe from different perspectives and find more uses for clothes that hide in the back of my closet.
I plan to post weekly updates, with photos of the outfits.
