What is MMM ’12 you ask?? Well, for those who don’t
obsessively follow sewing blogs, it stands for Me-Made-May 2012.
It’s a month long celebration, challenging us sewing folk to wear our creations. While some peeps choose to wear a handful of items each week and some will only wear handmade items (crazy!!), I’ve decided that my challenge will be to wear one handmade garment each day for the entire month of May.
So here’s my pledge.
‘I, Christy from ‘littlebettydesigns.blogspot.com’ sign up as a participant of Me-Made-May ’12. I will endeavour to wear one me-made item of clothing each day for the duration of May 2012. If I fail to wear a me-made item on any day, I’ll wear two items the following day.’
I’m super excited by this challenge. Even though I’ve participated in one of these challenges before, Me Made June 2011, this time I feel far more prepared and even have some t-shirts and jeans that fit the me-made requirements.
Now I’ve completed one of these challenges before, so I am fully aware of how difficult the photography side of the challenge can be. As you probably know, my photography on this blog has been a little crappy lately. It has never been awesome, but it’s certainly not good right now. During this challenge, the photography will probably slide further into crapsville. In all likelihood I will take all of my photos indoors and given that this is Autumn, they will probably be a little dark, but hey – it’s not a photography challenge is it?
Only a couple more days to go!
