Wednesday Weekly #131

Happy Wednesday, makers! It’s the first day of Me Made May and I have decided on my pledge for this year! I have been working in my loungewear this year and I’m feeling in a bit of a rut, sewing wise. I want to encourage myself to make nice things and to do that, I need to wear nice things to ‘work’ each day! I pledge to get properly dressed for work and wear a non-loungewear outfit that includes at least one handmade piece (though likely more). If you want to learn more about Me Made May, you can do so here!

  1. Sounds like a great challange for yourself. I’m anxious to see pictures. I need to get on the site to see everyone’s pictures. Love you and Carolyn on the podcast.

  2. Awww thanks for the mention! xoxox

    How good are all those new patterns?!?! Are you going to make any of them?

    1. I am sooo tempted by the Closet Case Patterns overalls! I want them so bad but I’m not sure i have time to sew them! Fingers crossed!

  3. Hi Helen, I love reading your Wednesday Weekly Post – and I almost fell off my chair when I saw your reference to my striped Molly top! Thanks so much for the shout-out! I really admire your blog, your patterns and your podcast, so it made me extra happy (and dance around the kitchen a little, I’ll admit :-)) to see that you have noticed my blog post! Have a great day, Melanie from The Flying Needle

    1. Hi Melanie! You are so sweet! Thanks for following along with me and it was my pleasure to link to your project! I need that striped top in my life!
