It’s a new year and new pledge for me. Just in case you haven’t heard of Me Made May, it is the brainchild of Zoe at So Zo, what do you know, and involves dressmakers, knitters, and refashioners pledging to wear more of their handmade and altered clothing. Everyone gets to set their own challenge for the month of May and if you like, you can share your progress on social media. I’m hoping that quite a few of these beauties will be making an appearance.
I did participate in Me Made May for the first time last year and enjoyed it, but found it hard work getting pictures of what I had been up to. This year I am going to be a bit more practical and pragmatic. I wear a uniform to work, so it isn’t always practical to wear me-mades there (except perhaps some un-blogged underwear), so this is my pledge…
‘I, Naomi of Naomi Sews and @naomisewsnews, sign up as a participant of Me-Made-May ’17. I endeavour to wear at least one me-made item, at least two evenings a week and on weekends/bank holidays for the duration of May 2017. I will also attempt to log my journey though may on Instagram.’
This month is also my submission date for my next unit from my PGCE so things may get a bit wonky mid-month, but I’m going to give it my best shot! It might well be fun to have something else to think about and work on when I’m stressed and tired of reading academic papers!
