Lilly said...

Hey, this is starting today and so am I! I pledge to wear clothes I made on the weekends (since I still don't have enough for a whole month). ;) Cheers and thanks for organizing this!

Yavanna Reynolds said...

HELLO! I hope I am not too tardy to the party. I hadn't come here to officially pledge, but I announced a couple weeks ago to my instagram following my intention to participate.

I pledge that during the month of May I will strive to wear a homemade item at least 3 days a week. I do not quite have enough items to wear everyday, but I will strive to have more days than not.

I also pledge to create at least one new dress or tunic to wear during the month.

I also pledge that time permitting, I will create more things for both myself and my family to wear during the month. I do not want to pledge more, because I want to make sure I can actually complete this challenge.

AndreaKnits said...

This will be my first time, but I'd like to participate! I'm Andrea Rangel (www.andreaknits.com, Instagram: @andrearknits). I love the idea of an all-handmade wardrobe (except for shoes - haven't learned to cobble yet), so I'm going to wear something handmade every day in May. I really, really love making, so this month I'm going to slow down and be more mindful of what I'm making to avoid creating an excessive, unnecessary wardrobe. Thanks for hosting!

badmomgoodmom said...

Oops, I had a busy week and left signups till may 1.
This will be my nth time participating, and it gets easier to wear
something me-made every day each time.

MMM has given me the discipline to actually take into
account my lifestyle when making things.
This saves me time and materials, and produces
less waste. MMM is a great idea.

I'll be posting my pix on instagram, bmgmlax or at http://badmomgoodmom.blogspot.com

Gill Jackson said...

I just discovered this. What a brilliant idea! Would love to pledge if it's not too late.

Especially to wear those crocheted wraps and shawls that sit in my wardrobe. I also pledge to finish my WIP's including those 2 dresses and those 2 cardi's.

Sarah Liz said...

Signing up. I plan to wear as many of my Me Mades as possible during May - I will be posting on both Instagram and my blog, www.sarahlizsewstyle.blogspot.com, once a week, with a summary at the end of the month. I will then have a better idea of how I actually look in real life, and also will have a better idea of what I need in my wardrobe. It's taken me three years to get to the point where I might have enough Me Mades to even consider Me Made May. Thanks for hosting again.

I have the number so low because I don't have a lot of me-mades. So in addition, I will be attempting to make a new item of clothing for me each week in May with the fabrics/patterns I've already had sitting around for quite some time
