Me-Made-May ’13 Week 5

IMG_20130530_175104I know we’re a couple days into June now, but here’s the final weekly wrap-up for Me-Made-May. I succeeded in taking my daily photos, but I definitely crashed and burned on the looking nice everyday front…

I’m glad that I participated this year, but I am ecstatic to be done taking pictures of myself everyday.

So, how did I do? Well, this was my pledge for the month:

I, Becca, of Creative Notions, sign up as a participant of Me-Made-May ’13. I endeavor to wear a different handmade garment every day for the duration of May 2013. I also pledge to sew at least two new garments and two activewear garments.

I wore a handmade garment everyday, without any outfit repeats. Everything I wore was me-made, aside from cardigans and jeans. I did wear my jeans a couple of days, which made me realize that I really need to experiment with making a pair myself. I realized that most of my spring and summer wardrobe is made by me. However, if I tried this challenge in fall or winter, I would have mostly repeats.

I more than met my sewing goal, too. I made 8 new items, several of which have not been posted yet. MMM gave me the boost I needed to be productive.

Me-Made-May ’13 Week 4

IMG_20130520_161158Are we there yet?! I’m so ready to be done taking pictures of myself everyday. It’s becoming a bit of an annoyance. We’re almost there though. Only a few days left in May. Good thing too, I’ve worn just about every single me-made I have.

Just to give you a new face to look at, here’s sweet little Newton. He says, “Hi, everyone!” Oh yeah, and as you can see in the last photos, I just received my new glasses. Now, I have a pair to wear with blues, greens, and blacks and a pair to wear with all the other colors. I’ve never had two pairs of glasses at once. I’ve usually either lost or broken my old ones by now. 😛

Me-Made-May ’13 Week 3

IMG_7204If only I’d had time to come up with a clever title for these summary posts. Oh well. It’s round-up time again. Here’s what I wore for week three of Me-Made-May ’13.

That’s all for week 3. I’ve been sewing like mad over the weekend, to the exclusion of everything else. We’re taking a trip for Memorial Day weekend, so I’m trying to make sure that I have what I need to keep my me-made pledge alive. What have you been up to this weekend? Any Memorial Day weekend plans?

Me-Made-May ’13 Week 1

IMG_6955Here’s a summary for my first week of Me-Made-May. I’ll be posting a round-up each Sunday.

After the first few days of Me-Made-May, I can tell that this month is going to be a lot of fun. I feel so much better about myself when I put the effort in to look presentable, and wearing me-made items gives me a boost of confidence throughout the day. Taking pictures of myself every day is definitely going to get old, but hopefully, I can change it up and make it fun.
