It seems like we just finished Me-Made-March, and look what's back!
Same concept, less alliterative. Yes, for the entire month of June, I will once again be wearing only clothes that I have made myself! Here's my pledge to prove it:
I, Valerie of threadsthoughtsthing.blogspot.com, sign up as a participant of Me-Made-June '11. I endeavour to wear only Me-Made garments each day for the duration of June 2011.
Want to try it? Sign up here on Zoe's blog. You can create your own challenge for yourself - one me-made garment a day, for instance, is a great starting point!
And while I was feeling sorry for myself and my poor back, look what Forrest Nicole at Presser Foot Propaganda (who lives in Texas and has a real sassy sense of style - go check her out!) gifted me!I don't know what a liebster is, but it sort of sounds British, doesn't it? Anyway, the story behind the award is that it is for blogs with less than 300 followers, to provide a little encouragement and let them know they have a place in the sew-isphere! Thanks for making me feel special, Forrest Nicole :) (also, read Hunger Games - your mom is right)
And lastly, look what I found!
|Floral Print Skirt from Zara|
Does anyone else think this looks uncannily similar to the Ribbon Skirt I made two weeks ago?! And mine only cost me $7 to make (+ 1.5 hours of my life), instead of $39.90. #winning!
