Me-Made-May 2014: My pledge

Me-Made-May is back for 2014! Can I hear a woop? I took part in this annual challenge organised by So, Zo… for the very first time last year, when my pledge was to wear something me-made at least three times a week. Well, this year I have more me-made garments than I did this time last year, and therefore I think I’m in a position to up my game, and up my pledge!

“I, Kat of www.akraftykat.co.uk, sign up as a participant of Me-Made-May ’14. I endeavor to wear a me made garment for at least five days a week for the duration of May 2014”

Eeek! While I do have a reasonable number of me-made garments now, many of them do not see very much wear. I’m hoping that this challenge will encourage me to bring out some of the hidden gems, and work out why I don’t wear them more often. If I’m honest, for some of them I suspect it may be because I am too lazy to iron them, which is shocking I know.

(Just to clarify, it has occurred to me that my pledge could be read as, I endeavor to wear the same me made garment for at least five days a week. This is not my intention – that would be stinky! A different garment for these five days is the plan).

I am hoping that I will manage to take daily outfit photos and plan to blog weekly round-ups. I will also be joining the flickr and pintrest groups – I can’t wait to follow everyone’s me-made journey!

Are you joining in with this year’s Me-Made-May? Are you a first-timer or are you upping your game this year? If you’re still sitting on the fence, there is still time to sign up – just pop over to Zo’s blog for the details.
