Me Made May

If you're at all into the online sewing community, especially on Instagram. You've heard of Me Made May. A challenge started years ago by Zoe who blogs at "So, Zo, What do you know?" Essentially the point is to wear something you've made each day in the month of May. I love the idea but frankly I'm not prolific enough at this point that that's really feasible (#lifegoals). So my goal (I'm making a goal rather than a pledge, don't want my failure to be that catastrophic if it happens) is as follows: 

I will do my level best to wear, dress my daughter in or use something that I have made, mended or altered with my own two hands each day this month.

I'll document my progress as best as I can manage on my instagram account: @KnitsMcGee. Today I'm wearing an Itch to Stitch Idyllwild Tee (my TNT t-shirt pattern) that I lengthened to tunic length and made into a swing top using this tutorial from Hey June Handmade. It's just a selfie shot since I slept in wet hair last night so my hairdo looks like I woke up at 7:56 for an 8am class. At least you get to see the pretty neckline which I totally nailed.
