Last year I watched my social media feeds come alive with super talented ladies taking part in 'Me Made May', I was so inspired by seeing the wonderful garments and accessories everyone had made. So much so I thought I'd join in myself this year.
If you haven't heard about this challenge before, the idea is pretty simple. Founded by So Zo What Do You Know, the main idea is that throughout May you strive to put your gorgeous handmade items on show. You make a pledge that fits with you, whilst still being a challenge of sorts. Here's my pledge;
'I Vicki Brown, of Vicki Brown Designs, pledge to wear at least one handmade by me garment or accessory throughout the month of May'
I'll be sharing daily shots of my handmade wares over on Instagram and will do a weekly round up over here too.
If you fancy joining in, do it! We're only a couple of days in so you definitely still can.
I've already found myself pulling out neglected handmades and feeling so good for it. It's also helping me to see what would be good future additions for my wardrobe. Which coincides nicely with my new found love of sewing, my discovering a whole load of really 80's sewing patterns I had hidden away and a new blog project I'm starting with Bex of Ampersand Commodities (more on that soon!).
