Me-Made-May 2013

It's that time of the year again!  I'll be taking part in Me-Made-May (hopefully if Zoe lets me--I forgot to sign up on her sign up post until today....).

Here's my me-made pledge:

I, Debi of My Happy Sewing Place, sign up as a participant of Me-Made-May '13. I endeavour to wear only me-made clothes (except for undergarments and outergarments) each day for the duration of May 2013.  I also endeavor to make do and mend and refashion some garments currently in my wardrobe that are not working for me at the moment'

Woot! Woot!  You can check out my past participation in Me-Made-May, Me-Made-June and Self-Stitched-September here.  Spoiler alert--you are going to see all these outfits

I'm also going to try and be more active on the Flickr pool this year.  I'll be posting weekly round-ups of my me-made-May outfits.  So stay tuned!

Who else is participating?


  1. Good Morning from the mountains of the Northeast here in the States. This is my first time participating, and I am quite excited!

    Thank you for sharing Debi, and I don't think there is a problem with wearing the same things. They were made by you, so they are going to last :D m.

  2. Hi, my first time participating too! I'm excited but also strangely nervous that I don't manage it! I keep thinking I'll have forgotten about some activity/diary event that requires an outfit for which I don't have an appropriate handmade item, but I guess that's really quite unlikely in reality! :)

  3. This is my first MMMM, too! I've only been sewing about 4 months, so I don't have enough to wear only handmade for a month, but I can do two days a week! I need to refashion some "duds" too. Happy Me-Made-May!

  4. I´m so happy that you are in this year again, looking forward to seeing your gorgeous outfits! :-)

  5. Yayyyyy!! I'm SO glad you're doing this again, Debi. Can't wait to see your posts :)

  6. Yes I will be doing it - can't wait to see everyone's outfits for the month!

  7. I've been following your blog for some time, but it's great to see what you'll come up with in this challenge. This being my first time, I'm only pledging for the weekends...

  8. I signed up! I'm wearing my first outfitted today but didn't have time to photograph this morning. Hopefully I don't forget when I get home tonight! Also can't wait to see what everyone else wears. This is very exciting!

  9. Don't feel bad, somehow I missed that I needed to sign up, so I signed up today as well!

  10. Wow love your wardrobe, I,ve only recently learnt about me made may, so will aim to participate next year as only made 2 items so far!

  11. Looking forward to seeing your gorgeous wardrobe in action during May! I'll also be participating, with the aim to be more active in the flickr-pool than last time (both to comment on others, and - as a starting point - actually upload all my days) =)

  12. I'm not. :( With going through a sudden bathroom remodel in May, it just seemed silly to be trying to fill my days with me-made clothing in the middle of a construction zone. Plus with our trip at the end of the month, I knew it would be hard to document.

    BUT! Promise me that when I get to meet you (soon! I do need to email you back on that), you include me in your MMM outfit of the day, and I'll be sure to be wearing me-made too! ;)


I read each and every comment--thank you so much!
