Me Made May Rundown ~ Week 1

Sunday, May 05, 2013

'I, Shannon of Shanni Loves..., sign up as a participant of Me-Made-May '13. I endeavor to wear one handmade or refashioned garment at least twice a week for the duration of May 2013'
Time for the first weekly rundown of the me made items I wore for the week.  It was a short week so I managed to surpass my goal of two items a week and wore a handmade item every day of the week! Ok one was a repeat, shoot me.  This full week ahead is gonna be tricky. I will manage to get my two but I really really wanna wear more. 
Day 1:
  simplicity 1696
Simplicity 1696 HotPants blogged here.
 Thank you for all your wonderful comments on my new red pants!  I'm sure you'll probably see these again in another MMM weekly rundown.  Sorry but I can't get enough of these pants!!
Day 2..& 3:
Butterick 5432 (and a little cat tail) never blogged
Just some boring old lounge pants.  These are one of the first things I ever made.  When I get home form work it's a sprint to my bedroom to shed the work clothes and throw on some lounge clothes.  These were a repeat for day 3.
Day 4:
  Me Made May Day 4 ~ Sewaholic Thurlows

Love these pants and I'm way due for another pair.  I've had a khaki pair floating around in my brain for some time now..just gotta make it happen!
As you can see in the last pic it was a rainy weekend here. Spent a lot of time sewing and watching movies.  I did clean up my sewing room and was embarrassed to look under my cutting table and find a WIP pile I had accumulating.  Well this pile was half WIPs I forgot about and half shit (fails) I wanted to forget about.  I found a skirt I started two years ago and haven't a clue as to why I never finished it.  So anyhoo some new items coming along to add to the Me Made May madness.
In other exciting news I won a $200 gift certificate from Mood Fabrics!!  What a way to top off my birthday!   Mood has quickly become one of my favorites places to buy fabric.  The selection and quality has never been disappointing.  If you have a sewing or other crafty blog you too could be a winner.  Get the details here.
So who else is participating or just enjoying in Me Made May???
