Me Made May 2018 #MMM18

You might wonder - what is Me Made May? Well, it's a personal challenge. You can make your pledge whatever you want. You can sign up here -

Here's a little info copied from the So, Zo What do you know blog...

What is Me-Made-May?

Me-Made-May'18 (#MMMay18 for social media interaction) is a challenge designed to encourage people who sew/knit/crochet/refashion/upcycle garments for themselves to wear and love them more. This challenge works on both a personal and community level. The participants decide the specifics of their own challenge, so that the month is appropriate and challenging for them (more on this below), and aim to fulfil that pledge for the duration of May 2018. Some participants also choose to document their challenge photographically (though this is in no way compulsory for taking part) and share them with other participants. 

Taking part in #MMMay18 can help you...
  • to start integrating your self-made items into your regular wardrobe rotation.
  • get out of a wardrobe rut by focusing on your lesser-worn items and creating new outfits that include them.
  • find out what the 'holes' in your wardrobe are so that you are able to use your garment-creating time more usefully in the future.
  • begin wearing the clothes that you really want to be seen in, rather than the same old things you usually reach for most mornings.
  • enjoy the excuse to finish off any lingering UFOs (unfinished objects), or to finally start a project that has been on your mind for ages.
  • discover what the rest of this large community of makers has created and is wearing in their day-to-day lives, and enjoy the support, advice and inspiration that they will provide.

I already wear items I made nearly every day. In May, I make a concerted effort to make sure I do wear items I made everyday. I'm also using this month to go through  my closet and figure out what I really wear and love. I'll wear items that have been hiding in the back of my closet, and deciding if they are something I really enjoy wearing, or if I should remove it from my wardrobe. My hope is that I will, at the end of the month, purge those items from my closet and I'll put them up for sale on my Facebook page or I might try Instagram.
