My pledge for the following month was as follows:
I, Fooniks from A Needle For Your Thoughts , sign up as a participant of Me-Made-May'14. I endeavour to wear at least one handmade or upcycled item each day for the duration of May 2014'
So for the rest of this month I will do my very best to wear at least one item that has felt the loving touch of my tiny little fingers.
|Look for the 1st of May|
|Look for 2nd of May|
|3rd of May|
|4th of May|
So what I wore in words:
1st of May I wore a white cotton jersey tanktop I made a year or so ago. What I love about this fabric is that it has tiny vertical red stripes in it so it's not just...blaaah. I also had on black tights and a cardigan(origin:a store) First of May is a bank holiday in my country so I just spent the day lounging on the couch and knitting and zipping wine. Soooo..No need to wear something fancy, just casual stuff.
2nd of May I wore the Mickey Shirt(Blog post here), my favorite pair of black jeans(which are the ones from the jean rip repair post here).
3rd of May I was visiting my Granny and we were helping her with some garden work and planting some potatoes and stuff. So this is what I wore most of the day and these are clothes I won't cry about if they get some dirt on them. Red tanktop-self made. Hoodie and pants-thrifted. Plus some working boots.
4th of May. Holy Mother of flash. It was late and I was tired from shopping all day. Mr.Man and I went to some shops and looked some stuff for the house. Good news everyone! I bought a new dress form that is size adjustable, so I should be able to make better pictures of the things I've made. Things just don't look goood when they don't fit the dress form. Oh my. Sidetracked alert! Anywhoo.... I wore a red jersey/black lace button-up shirt/jacket I made two years ago. This thing is definitely my "Most worn" selfmade item. And I paired it with the same jeans I wore on the 2nd and a regular black t-shirt.
When I got to my Granny's on Friday evening, she had a surprise! Her cat had given birth to four kittens on Friday morning. They were so cute and I couldn't stay away from them.
|THE MOST CUTEST THING EVER!!!!|
This month will definitely be a challenging month for me. Going from someone who escapes the scene when a camera comes out to a person who takes selfies every day.
