Me-Made May &Me

WOW, has it been 3 months since I last posted, but I couldn’t have timed my return any better with Me-Made-May 2015. After almost 8 long months of homeslessness/studiolessness I now have a place to call my own. It is small but it’s mine all mine and it’s the littlest things in life we are most grateful for, and now I can get to making and blogging.

I have lots of plans for this month but none I will reveal just yet. After not being able to really sew for 8 long and I mean long months of course my list is way bigger than what is really accomplish-able in one month. But keep a close eye, with 8 months worth of sewing energy built up I may just surprise myself.

I haven’t taken the pledge for MMM15 just yet since I plan on doing a lot of pattern work this month which will keep me super busy but that doesn’t me I’m totally out. I have been watching and wanting to participate in Me-Made-May for a few years now and most of what I wear I made so I just may pop in with something here and there once in a while on my Instagram feed.

Without giving away too much info, I do plan to do a lot of sewing with knits so I may just pop in here with a few knit related post. After sewing with knits for a few years now I can honestly say it is one of my favorite fabrics to work with. I’m so glad that I didn’t read some of the post I have found around on different forums and sites with horror stories and many people scared to try or believe that ¬†you just have to have a serger/overlocker to try. My best advice to those who are afraid to sew knits, get some fabric and a few books and play around with it, and you’ll quickly learn it’s not what you think.

Until next time, happy sewing…
