Join Me: Self-Stitched-September!!!


This is it! The last day of Me-Made-May. I know I am not alone in saying that it has been an incredibly enjoyable, interesting, inspirational and fun experience, made incalculably more so because of the (dare I use the term) community that has formed through the Flickr group and participants blogs.

So, what next? Well, there are some interesting sew-alongs springing up as a result of some participants’ desire to continue the supportive aspects of this challenge. Check out the Me-Made-May Flickr Group’s discussion threads for more details.

For my part, I am also reluctant to discontinue my involvement with the Me-Made-May support group and the direct contact with many of these awesome peops. So I’ve come up with another challenge that I hope will appeal to them and others. Those of you who may have picked up on my predisposition towards alliteration made have seen this one coming, but I would like to present....... Self-Stitched-September! The title is a bit more of a mouthful than its cousin Me-Made-May, but effective enough I believe. In case you were wondering, I did consider Self-Sewn-September but realised that moniker would prohibit the inclusion of knitted or crocheted items, which would be a tragedy.

I think it’s important to retain the open aspect of the Me-Made-May terms of use, in the sense that individuals should be free to determine what will form a challenge for themselves. But I have created a template to use which will hopefully make it easier than last time to declare your personal challenge strategy:

'I, (insert name here and blog address if you have one), sign up as a participant of Self-Stitched-September. I endeavour to wear (enter ‘only’ or a number) handmade (add ‘and refashioned’ if you wish) item(s) of clothing (add ‘or accessories/ jewellery’ if you wish) every day for the duration of September 2010'.

I really hope that those who have participated in Me-Made-May and enjoyed doing so will come on board for this next challenge, and equally I would LOVE to expand the participation to include more crafters. The last challenge had approximately 80 active participants (plus some lovely supporters and well wishers). Let’s see if this time round we can break through the big 100! I will create a new Flickr group by the end of the week so, as with Me-Made-May, we can enjoy each others’ photos and use the discussions threads any way members see fit. Watch out for an announcement on that.

In the meantime, if you would like to sign-up, please copy and paste the template into the comments section of this post and fill in/edit to suit your personal aims. Don’t worry, you won’t be held to this! If you wish to change your aims and do something different when September rocks around, it’s no problem. Then, if you so desire, paste your personalised template with any additions or qualifiers you wish to make onto your own blog if you have one: this is your statement of intent! And please include a link to this post so your lovely readers can find out more and perhaps become participants themselves if it interests them. If you do not wish to or cannot participate yourself but consider this challenge interesting, a linky-dink would also be greatly appreciated to help us get over the 100 participant target! So, who’s in?!

Wow, you're really on a roll! This thing has taken on a life of its own! (And probably taken over your life?!) I'm glad that all the work you're undoubtedly having with all this hasn't dampened your enthusiasm. While my Me-Made-May, due to unforeseen circumstances (aka "life") wasn't quite like I'd hoped for (little time for sewing and no time to take part in the discussions, sniff), I still loved it and will quite probably take part in SSS. Thank you for all the wonderful organisation!

Oh why not? Having spent the weekend sewing knickers I think I can do this!

Gulp.

Len said...

YAAAY! I was so gutted not to be able to take part in Me-Made-May due to the mental time that is ending my German year, but Self Stitched September shall be spent (partly) in Swansea, and I can't resist that alliteration now can I??

This depends wholly on how much I get done til then, but once I have an inventory closer to the time, it'll all be good!

Hurray! I was a bit nervous of joining in Me-Made-May but it looked like so much fun! I'm really pleased there'll be another one. This will fit so well into my year of ethical fashion!

I thought 1 a day would be too easy to cheat with, but I've yet to make a pair of jeans and I just can't live without them for a month!

Jane said...

I've seen the MMM challenge about the traps and love the idea. I think I have enough me-made basics and sewing enthusiasm and skill now to participate! If it happens next year I may even be able to go the whole hog. But for now:

This is awesome. I followed the Me-Made-May challenge on some of the blogs I follow and secretly regreted that I didn't participate. I will in this one though. It's enough time to add to the wardrobe until then, therefore:

Alison said...

Whoo hoo, I am already looking forward to this! I plan to continue sewing coordinates gradually all summer long to be really prepared. The MeMadeMay month was a wonderful impetus for me to actually make progress on a coordinated group of clothing.

I will wear only handmade (and refashioned) clothing, accessories, and jewelery (with the exception of shoes, hosiery and rainwear) every day for the duration of September 2010.

yay! I came on board too late for Me-Made-May but have loved watching your group's efforts and have met some great bloggers along the way... so I'm in! I wear me-made stuff nearly every day anyway so it won't be much of a stretch I hope... especially as the weather will be warmer here by that stage.

Thanks Zoe for MMM. I too loved the community feel (I gag at the phrase - but I felt I got to know a few poeple and certainly their sense of style). I did a light version but want to sign up big time for september. So here it is.

jessica said...

Zoe, this is such a great idea, I will be on board in one fashion or another for September but have yet to see what kind of job I'll be in [and their dress code] but if I can't do a full on SSS [although I love the idea of Me Made Movember as well, heh] then I will be full-on cheering you all on!

AnaJan said...

Congratulations to you Zoe, and to all your fellows of the Me-Made-May challenge. Count me in for the September season! :)

Irene Bullock said...

Hi Zoe! This time I'm so in. I'm a begginer in the sewing world, so my handmade wardrobe is basically 5 items (which i've used in my holidays in Spain in a sort of me-made-week). But now I have the time to plan ahead and make enough clothes for a month challenge!

'I, Uta of el-little.blogspot.com, sign up as a participant of Self-Stitched-September. I endeavour to wear at least one handmade item of clothing every day for the duration of September 2010'.
I will make this public on my blog shortly; good luck drumming up the 100 - no doubt you can do it!!

AnaJan said...

I forgot to take an oath:
I, AnaJan, sign up as a participant of Self-Stitched-September. I endeavour to wear only handmade item(s) of clothing every day for the duration of September 2010.
In addition, I'll note that I'm going on a two week vacation during September, which will make the whole challenge even more interesting! Also, I know that I won't be able to post my pictures during the vacation. Hence I'll have to post them once I come home. Hopefully, I'll have exotic photos to share with you :).
I am considering starting a sewing blog, and this challenge might push me to do so (I've been meditating about this idea for 2 years!).
Good luck to everybody, and have fun!

Emer said...

I think its a fab idea. I followed a lot of the Me Made May participants. So I will give it a go.

Alexandra Mason said...

I'm really hoping to take part but need to get a lot of sewing done first. I didn't do very well with Me-Made-May but i found it so inspiring and loved seeing everyones clothes! xx

fairyprincess said...

After being an onlooker for Me-Made-May and being so utterly impressed by everyone's acheivements, I would love to try for a Self-Stitched-September. I will however have to see how my projects are going closer to the date (and what I need to make more of!) before I can say for sure. I can hopefully at least partake in a light version of Self-Stitched-September!

Leah said...

Ooh, this one I hope to take part in! Though, we will have to see how much I make over the summer... okay...

I found you through Brumby's blog, and it looks like MMM was a lot of fun so I'm signing up for Sept. I used to sew all my clothes (many years ago!) and would love to get back into it.
Here goes!

Overall SSS is grammatically pleasant for me. I am ultra proud of how MMM took off (because I tend to wear everything I make, and only really have one or two vintage frocks) but couldn't commit for the busy times!

Suzie said...

Hi! I have absolutely LOVED watching everyone who participated in MMM. I'm only new to sewing and to be honest have only made a couple of things so far, but I would totally love to be involved in Self-Stitched-September (and with my name being 'Suzanna' and my blogs name as 'Starfishes' how can I refuse!!!) in some shape or form! So....

Yah, Zoe. I'm so glad you are having it again...a little later down the road. I completely stunk at Me Made May and only shared a few outfits. I got caught moving at the beginning with no time to make anything until the end. But I'm been sewing lately and will be ready by September. I'm not going to commit yet thought because if we sell our place I'll be moving again...who knows when. <3

Right I have a bit longer to prepare for this one and no exams or anything like that to get in my way!! I may even take the sewing machine away during august to help get ready!!

MMM was great but I just didn't manage to sustain the pace!! This time I'll try harder (that is horribly reminiscent of my school reports!!)

Lily said...

How fabulous! I didn't want to do Made Me May because I didn't have enough clothes and I thought everyone would get really sick of seeing me in the same outfit 4 times a week (yes... I do wear the same thing 4 times a week when I'm behind with my washing...). This will give me incentive to sew heaps of fabulous stuff by September!

This is very exciting! I followed the Made in May challenge but was too late to participate. This is perfect excuse to get my bum into gear and start all those planned projects I have. And this is perfect, because in Australia we'll be going into Spring: pretty dress time!

kaitui_kiwi said...

I missed out on the May challenge and was sad because getting my wardrobe to 80% made-by-me was my 2010 NY resolution! So here's my pledge, it'll give me a kick in the bum to get some serious sewing done in the next few months: 'I, kaitui_kiwi, sign up as a participant of Self-Stitched-September. I endeavour to wear as many handmade item(s) of clothing as possible (aiming for 80%) for every day for the duration of September 2010'.

nomm is ... said...

Me-Made-May hit me around the middle of the month, so I was much too late for that. But it seemed so much fun. So now I should love to be part of Self-Stitched-September.

'I, nommh of textile eskapade, sign up as a participant of Self-Stitched-September. I endeavour to wear at least two handmade items of clothing every day for the duration of September 2010'.

Two items is almost too easy for me, since practically all my knickers have crawled out from under my serger. So for me the challenge will e to actually blog about my outfits, and to make sure the usual monotony will be relieved somewhat.

Antoinette said...

Things were too hectic for me to participate in Me-Made-May, but so far I think Self-Stitched September is looking good for my schedule. Thank you for hosting this!

Sewfast said...

I would love to participate, but I am going to be spending most of September in the UK welcoming in my first Grandson. Not sure how much internet access I will have to post pictures (or a willing photographer) I may try to take daily pictures and post when I can. Would that be acceptable?

indigorchid said...

Like other commenters, Me-Made-March/May was timing-wise not so good for me, but I'm excited about dedicating September to self-made things!

Mary said...

Hi, I'm Mary - apologies if this is a duplicate. II tried to sign up for Self Sewn September about 12 hours ago - and my post still hasn't come through - although several others have since then - so I'm trying again. You can tell I'm keen! I followed MMM with great interest and will try to wear at least two items of me made clothing every day during the month of September 2010. September 28 is my birthday - and I might try to make that day completely me made (except for shoes and bra). It will still be chilly in Wellington, NZ in September - so the question of knitwear and outerwear is what's stopping me from trying to go completely me made during that month.

Clare said...

will be on board for SSS-lite even if (like MMM) my photographic / blogging contribution is errrrrr minimal, to say the least. It's a great idea and great to see SO MANY people on board for this. Go Zo!

Mary said...

I am so excited to be a part of this. I watched from the sideline during the MMM and was SOOOO inspired by everyone. Please keep me in the loop. Can't wait!

I, Mary (www.passionateperseverance@blogspot.com), as a participant in SSS, endeavor to wear only handmade or refashioned items (except my knickers, sorry) for the entire month of September.

Oh boy gotta get back to the sewing room!
Eeeekkk!!

I'm glad you organized a new one! For silly reasons I did not participate to the MMM and regretted it.

I couldn't do the May one, so we'll see if I can fit this one in! I work at home during the day (read that as comfy sweats/t shirt/pj's) and wear a uniform at work, so it will be a challenge to get me out of my "pj's at home" rut! And we're not talking about a glamorous life at home! There's dogs and cats and work outside, sewing for my shop, packing/shipping for Ebay, truffling around in flea markets for treasures....you get the picture!

There are going to be so many of us! I was an avid follower of MMM & now's the time to join in the fun. My sewing machine's no longer considering itself in enforced very early retirement & my favorite clothes are my handmade ones ... therefore

{At the moment I won't be making underwear, tights, jumpers or warm tops and things..... so will still be wearing them as needed, but will slowly work on changing those things over the next year}.

Thanks for the push and the inspiration. Going through my wardrobe now, to see what I need to make to fill the gaps.
