Me Made March is coming soon!


I, Kelly, have signed up as a participant of Me-Made-March '11. I endeavor to wear two hand-made pieces of clothing or accessories each day for the duration of March 2011.

After participating in Self-Stitched September my clothing habits changed dramatically. I find myself going first for the hand made garments and being a bit pouty and whiny if I have to wear something ready to wear. After my last big wave of long sleeved shirts I even had hand-made things to wear on the really cold days. March should be a breeze to get through on hand-made clothes. Since it's supposed to be a challenge I decided to up my pledge to TWO hand-made pieces. Since I know some days will be hard I will allow my second piece to be an accessory when needed. (I have so many handmade earrings that will be no problem.)

I did do a little sewing this weekend, but a stomach virus knocked me out cold Thursday night, and it took me all day Friday and most of today to recover. Since I had to lay around I decided pajama pants would be a good project. So I made my first pair out of an old sheet to test the fit. Next up silk! Oh yeah!

I keep trying to gear up for this but I am having trouble keeping up with my regular life... Can't wait to see what you post!

I think it would be easier to do if I still worked. I could do pj pants I've made everyday...

I can't wait to see what you come up with!

Silk?! Really? Oh, you are brave! But I know they will be fantastic. Sorry to hear you've been sick...stomach bugs are awful. :( I'm glad you're feeling better! Now post your PJ pants!

Wow, impressive. My little girl could probably do this challenge since I have made her quite a few things (clothes, hairbows, bags), but I find that I rarely sew for myself. I really should though, because the few dresses I have made during our marriage are a favorites of mine.
