Me-Made-June '11: Join Me!!!

Here we go people!!!!!!!!!!!!! Time for the latest me-made/self-stitched challenge invented by yours truly and open to anyone who wishes to play along! Many thanks for those who helped me figure out what to call the damn thing. With that decision dealt with, I was able to undertake the most important of tasks: choosing the right font to make the logo. Ta daaaaaaaa!!!!!!!!!!!!!:


You like? Good. Honestly though, I don't choose the font: the font chooses me. My role is more dowsing than anything. Anyways, onto the challenge itself...

What is Me-Made-June '11?

In the same vein as Me-Made May (2010), Self-Stitched-September (2010) and Me-Made-March '11 before it, MMJune '11 is an opportunity to pledge to wear your handmade creations more than you usually would during the month of June 2011. By 'handmade creations', I mean anything sewn, knitted, crochetted, refashioned, upcycled, re-made, etc. by your own fair hands.

Why should I take part?

(I cannot improve on my explanation of Me-Made-March '11, so if this paragraph looks familiar, don't worry, you're not going crazy.) The purpose of Me-Made-June '11 is to encourage those of us who make and/or refashion clothes to actually wear them our their everyday lives. Rather than spend hours on projects that then languish unworn and unloved in the bottom of a drawer, I believe we should be proud of our achievements and creations. Let's show ourselves as well as everyyone else, that our efforts are more than just a pastime, that we have been slowly developing valueable skills that we can use to actually clothe ourselves, damn it! Let's learn to love our creations, to look past any flaws we can see in them (that probably no-one else would even notice). Why not take an opportunity to learn about what garments work best for our bodies and lifestyles so we can make more informed choices when sewing/knitting/refashioning etc. in the future? Participating in Me-Made-June '11 can do all of these things and more!

How does MMJune '11 work?

All you have to do is copy the pledge below and post it in the comments section of this post adapted to include your details and the personal specification of your challenge. For example, you could challenge yourself to wearing one self-stitched/refashioned garment a day, or if you have been sewing/knitting/etc. for a long time, you may decide to challenge yourself to two self-stitched/refashioned garment a day, or even more! Maybe you wish to only include refashions in this challenge: no problem! Perhaps you wish to include jewellery and accessories you have made: equally, no problem! This is YOUR challenge, write the script any way you want, just remember: IT IS A CHALLENGE. If you already wear a lot of self-stitched/refashioned items, think how you can up the ante. If you are fairly new to garment creating and/or re-working, make this a challenge, but don't make it impossible for yourself. If you are confused and could do with some pointers, you could check out the pledged in the comments section of MMMar '11 sign-up post to see what others have pledged in the past.

'I, (insert name here and blog address if you have one), sign up as a participant of Me-Made-June '11. I endeavour to wear
......................................................... each day for the duration of June 2011'

If you have a blog, re-post your pledge so your readers and followers can see what you are up to. Please include a link to this post so other can also sign-up if they are interested. If there's one thing I've learnt from these challenges, the more people involved, the bigger the party!


Closer to the start of June I will create a MMJune '11 Flickr group for those who wish to to post their daily outfits consisting of or including self-stitched/self-refashioned garments. What out for the announcement. Please note: participation in the Flickr group is entirely optional. If you wish to participate in MMJune '11 but don't want to be involved in the Flickr group and/or you don't have a blog, or you don't wish to take daily photos, that's absolutely fine!!! The point of this is to challenge yourself and have fun, hopefully learning something from the process. How you chose to participate is as individual as you are.

Coming very soon will be a blog button/widget of the MMMJune '11 logo that you can add to your blog!

Happy challenging! xxx

Sign me in! The MMM '11 experience was so good, I decided not to skip the June challenge (or any future challenge). I enjoyed wearing/showing off my clothes and I especially liked the revelation moments when I paired together some garments for the first time. So, here we go:

Oooh! How exciting! I was a stalker of everyone taking part in the last two challenges, but just didn't have enough self-made clothes to take part. But the last few months I've been busy sewing so have a chance of doing this now without wearing the same things every day... (Plus I have the whole of May to sew more stuff).

An added bonus is that I'll be having a short holiday in June, so I get to make some extra fun stuff too :)

Hello Zoe !

I've been hesitating for a while about participating. I had joined the Me-Made March and showed absolutely everything me-made in my closet ! And the weather in June and March is identical in this part of the world. So, I first thought it would be boring to the others to see again the same clothes. Then, I decided it would be worse not to join !It was such a good moment in March ! No more procrastination, I'll sew and make as much new clothes as I can !

I, Karine from http://www.flickr.com/photos/karamiel/ sign up as a participant of Me-Made-June'11. I will wear at least one self-made garment each day of the month.

shams said...

I also hesitated to do this next me-made, but for different reasons than most. I can pretty easily wear all self made clothing, because I pretty much do all the time anyway. But I have some beautiful clothes in my closet that rarely (or never) get worn. Some of these are handmade (not by me) and some are boutique clothing that are unusual and unique. So, I want to incorporate those into my daily wardrobe so they aren't fashion orphans.

I, Shams of http://communingwithfabric.blogspot.com/, sign up as a participant of Me-Made-June '11. I endeavor to wear
hand made clothing each day for the duration of June 2011. At least one of the garments will be made by me, but some might be made by others.

Shelly said...

This will be my first challenge. I'm not sure I have enough items to wear but will certainly give it a good try. I better get cracking and make a few more things to ensure my participation is worthwhile.

Eek! At the moment I have four items of clothing I've made, but I desperately need motivation to wear those four. I've also made several pairs of pjs and a few cutesy pairs of underwear, so I think I'll have to tweak mine to be:

I only discovered this blog in July. Too late to sign on for Me-Made-June '11. I'm pretty new to sewing, so not many of me-made garments are suitable to wear if I want to make a good impression. But I wear them every day around the house and to work in the garden. I hope to be good enough at sewing to be a full-fledged participant next time!
