I, Shelly of Shelly's D.I.Y. Style! , sign up as a participant of Self-Stitched-Sept '11. I endeavour to wear at least one self made item each day for the duration of September 2011.
Now, I know that during June's me-made challenge I really struggled to wear one hand made item each day and was glad when it was over but I have to say the experience was one I benefited from immensely. I learned about my sewing habits, what things I make, where the gaps in my wardrobe were and how I dress. I also learned that it's not an easy thing to document, what with taking photo's every day and then posting them for everyone to see. It becomes quite a chore! However, I feel the knowledge gained about myself and my wardrobe is worth it especially the feeling of pride and satisfaction when I receive compliments about my self made clothes. Sooo.... needless to say, I'm a sucker for punishment! I've signed up again and look forward to this new challenge.
What about you? Are you up for the Challenge?
