Me Made May: Weeks 1 & 2

May is the month in which makers across the world pledge to wear their makes and sometimes make more! It was started by So Zoe as an effort to wear more me-makes and to figure out what isn’t getting worn. If you want more information, check out this post.

Since I don’t have that many me-makes yet, I didn’t pledge to wear a me-made item every day. Here’s my Me-Made May Pledge:

I, Alexandra of The Library of Alexandra ( and @alexandrap529 on Insta, sign up as a participant of Me-Made-May ’16. I endeavor to make 1 garment a week, finally clear out my UFO pile and wear all of my spring/summer me-made garments as much as possible for the duration of May 2016′

While I’ll be sharing the items that I made in May soon, I wanted to share a few of my daily me-made snaps first.

Not bad for only sewing for a few months!

Are any of you taking part in Me Made May?
