Happy first of May! If you’ve been paying attention to the online sewing world for any amount of time, then you probably know all about this fun challenge. Basically people make pledges- either to wear/make/document their handmade clothing. You don’t have to share, but a lot of people do. It’s fun to see a month of outfits and really helpful in analyzing your wardrobe. It’s also inspiring to follow the hashtag and see what patterns people are sewing and how they are wearing their handmade clothes. You can also participate and just keep it to yourself. There are no rules! Here are all my posts from last May!
Here is my pledge for May! I will be wearing and documenting my spring capsule everyday. I’ll round up ever week here and my hope is at the end I have a better sense as to if this whole capsule thing is actually something I want to continue as well as see a full picture of my closet. This means everything won’t be handmade, but a lot will!
I also pledge to not shop any sewing related things this month- except for the thread or random notion I may need to finish a project! But no patterns, no fabrics. I have plenty of projects to work on and keep me busy and that is what I intend to focus on. I would also love to have a stretch of time to really think about summer sewing and give myself some time to plan.
Are you participating in Me Made May? I’d love to hear what you’re planning on doing and if you will be documenting it anywhere. More than anything I’m looking forward to a month of sunshine, family, a couple of birthdays, and the promise of summer (my favorite!).
