Me-Made-May ’13

OK. I’m a little late to decide, but better late than never.

‘I, Alison of www.alisonrea.ca sign up as a participant of Me-Made-May ’13. I endeavour to wear at least one hand made item each day for the duration of May 2013’

 

I hesitated to join the blogosphere in Me-Made-May ’13 due to logistics.

  • I have a hard enough time photographing all my makes and the thought of photographing myself everyday is quite daunting.
  • I ride my bicycle to and from work most days and will not be wearing my handmade items while cycling.  I will have to make an extra effort to take photos on my lunch hour or put the outfits on again once I get home from work.
  • I will be traveling through Croatia for the last two weeks of May and don’t know if I will be able to keep up both wearing handmade items daily and photographing them.  But I pledge to try.

Finding the handmade items to wear is the easy part.  Here is a photo from Day 1.  This is made from Sewaholic’s Crescent skirt pattern.  This is one of many Crescent skirts I made last year and never added to the blog.  I have a plan to try and make a green maxi skirt using this pattern, inspiration a mix between this and this.

    Good for you for joining in My husband and I are making our way back to Ontario in a week or so and the logistics of doing MMM while on a road trip felt like too much. Reading that you will do this while in Croatia puts me to shame!
