Me Made May - The Final Day

It's the final day of Me Made May.  I have managed to wear something Me Made or refashioned by me every day this month.  There were some repeats and there were days when it was just a Me Made accessory but I have done it.

If you are wondering what I am doing in these photos I am trying to say thank you to Zoe who organised this month of madness.  The Welsh word 'Diolch' - as it says on my 'Me Made' sign (took me ages that. :)) means 'thanks' in English and I am standing on a red chair as Zoe often takes her photo in front of a red door and as I don't have a red door this was the best I could do.  Honestly, it makes sense to me!

The Me Made red dress is also in honour of Zoe and I originally blogged about it in 2010.

Me Made May has taught me several things.  Firstly - I am a lucky bunny because May was tremendously changeable in the weather and I can't think of another month where I could show off my limited supply of both handknitted woolly hats and handsewn summer cotton dresses.  Secondly - it has made me finally tackle making a pair of trousers, they are half way through at the moment but they will be done and thirdly - there is an awful lot of inspirational people out there.  Thank you/Diolch to you all.


  1. This has been my first Me-Made challenge and I've loved it. Just compiling my photos from the last few days.

    Your giantess photos are strangely unsettling!

    1. It was my first time as well and I really enjoyed it. I hope to make lots more clothes so I don't have to repeat anything for the month and will have another go next year. I hope you will be joining in as well. :)

  2. How terrific that you were able to wear something of your own creation every day in May! I'm so impressed. Maybe next year I can join you.

    1. It was so much fun - I can recommend it!
