Me Made May 2016 – Week 1

Long time, no hear from. I know, I know. But, I just finished out my last semester for my Master’s program and I wanted to end on top. Not much has been happening on the craft scene. However, I did decide to participate in Me Made May. While I have added some new knits to my wardrobe, I have not sewn a thing in the past year. Not a skirt, dress, shirt…Nada. Yet, I still need to challenge myself to wear my handmade items more. So, this is my third year participating. I did not wear anything Me-Made on the first day because I spent most of that Sunday indoors putting the final touches on my papers. So, I’ll begin with Day 2…

Day 2 (Monday) – I’m wearing my Hetty cardigan, which is still in frequent rotation.

Day 3 (Tuesday) – I’m wearing my second Penelope cardigan (which I never blogged about). I really like wearing this because it is in my school colors.

Day 6 (Friday) – This skirt was the first thing I ever sewed. It is just an elastic skirt. I’m wearing it with my Henriette cardigan, which gets frequent rotation.
