Week 2: Me Made May 2017

Sorry for the delayed post; I almost forgot to write it!

Sunday, May 7th, 2017 – Mostly Sunny with a high of 61°F


and my much loved Angry Beavers Tee. 
It was Laundry day at our house. 

Monday, May 8th, 2017 – Thursday, May 11th, 2017
I was under the weather this week (more than usual) so I didn’t do too much except wear pjs, comfy pants and tees; I was in no mood to take photos though I did wear me-mades.

Friday, May 12, 2017 – Sunny with a high of 70°F


P4P Boundless Dress I just made – unblogged right now
Jalie Shrug I just made as well and also unblogged.

Saturday, May 13, 2017 – Cloudy with a high of 77°F


It was hot today for the Midwest
Ginger Jeans that I still have to blog

I wear a lot of me-mades each day of the year, but during me-made-may I find myself wearing things I might have forgotten about or wouldn’t wear each day.  I like that it pushes me to do that but it is stressful at times. 

Happy Sewing! I hope your Me-Made-May is going smoothly!

Week 1:Me Made May 2017

My goal this year is to wear more dresses and skirts during MMM. However, it’s been so darn cold here that it makes it uncomfortable for me.  Let’s hope it warms up as May continues on.

Monday, May 1st, 2017  ~  Rain with a high of 38°F


Jalie Hoodie (3355); I live in this hoodie; it’s a favorite of mine.  I made it in Nov. 2016
Jalie undies (3242), made the end of 2015
Gap Jeans

Tuesday, May 2nd, 2017  ~  Rain/Snow Showers with a high of 56°F


Jalie Jeans (2908); These fit so awesome. I made them May 2016.
Jalie undies (3242), made the end of 2015.
Purple Jalie 3355 Sweatshirt sewn April 2015.  I love this one and it amuses me because I wasn’t feeling it at the beginning; however, now I wear it nonstop!  I added the alice graphic with my silhouette in Dec 2015.
The tee I made with my Silhouette Cameo (it’s a quote from Vikings TV show, by Floki).

Wednesday, May 3rd, 2017  ~  Partly Cloudy with a high of 63°F


It’s Slowly warming up here. Laundry day at home.
Jalie yoga pants in black (3022). One of my most loved patterns, and though not very exciting... they are super comfy.  I made these in Oct 2015
Jalie undies (3242), made the end of 2015.
And my Link (Zelda) awesome shirt from Loot Crate.

Thursday, May 4th, 2017  ~  Mostly Sunny with a high of 66°F


Jalie Tee (2805); This is an oldie but goodie! I don’t know why I haven’t made more. I made this one in Aug 2013
Jalie Cardigan in gray (3248); Ok, I love, love, love wearing this.  Definitely an all time top 3 favorite pattern. I made this gray one in August 2016
My new Ginger Jeans! (unblogged at this time).  Oh My! I love these.  The denim is soft and the pattern is great.  I’ll be getting a ton of wear out of these.
Jalie undies (3242), made the end of 2015.

Friday, May 5th, 2017  ~  Sunny with a high of 70°F


Sewaholic Renfrew in Charlie Harper fabric!  What’s not to love?  This fabric is so fun, but the shirt is just a tad short.  I deal with it but I would like to remake it a little longer.  I made this one March of 2015.
My new Ginger Jeans for the second day….. I can’t help it; they are so comfortable!
Jalie undies (3242), made the end of 2015.

Saturday, May 6th, 2017  ~  Mostly Sunny with a High of 63°F

I was picking and canning some Rhubarb today.  I canned up some Rhubarb BBQ Sauce.  Our plants are going crazy and I have plans to can some Jam, pie filling, and cocktail as well. 
Jalie Hoodie (3355); It’s still a bit chilly here and I wish I hadn’t packed all my long sleeve dresses and tees away. 
Jalie Yoga Pants (3022) in navy; I made these in March 2017.  I would live in yoga pants everyday if I could.
Pisces tee I made with my Silhouette Cameo.
Jalie undies (3242), made the end of 2015.

And there is my first week of Me Made May for 2017!  I share daily on Instagram if you want to follow me there; I'll continue to post on the blog weekly, too.

 I wish it would warm up around here so I can wear more of my skirts.  Wisconsin weather is really fickle in spring.  Anyway, I have been enjoying seeing everyone's me-mades too!  It is very inspirational.
