Me-Made-May 15


Just to say that I am signing up to Me-Made-May'15 this year. Here is my pledge, and I think this is the first time I have actually managed to sign up before the 1st of May!:

 'I, TamsinWP of, sign up as a participant of Me-Made-May '15. I will endeavour to wear a me-made or repurposed item for at least 5 days each week for the duration of May 2015. I am also looking to go through my current wardrobe and weed out stuff I no longer wear'

I really want to weed out my wardrobe. I do it sporadically, but often end up not getting rid of the things that I weeded out because I like the fabric/it might be suitable for one of my girls/it's the only thing I have that goes with something I want to keep. This means I have a lot ot stuff around the house including a pile of things to sort through that is almost as tall at me! With 5 of us in the house and the girls growing constantly, I am feeling a bit overwhelmed by the amount of stuff we all generate!

I am planning to sign up to the Pinterest group and the Flickr group, but I will probably only post here each week with a summary post.

Good luck everyone!

Work in progress - dress for Eldest

I am currently working on a dress for Eldest but am unable to continue until she gets home from school. We chose a contrasting trim for the sleeves, but I'm not sure how she will want it - in-your-face obvious (on left) or discrete (on right), bearing in mind we also an orange zip which will be exposed. We shall see....
