Me-Made-May weeks 3 & 4

1 Jun

It’s been tough the last couple of weeks. I just came back from holiday and in my endeavour to wear ALL of my clothes on holiday I wore barely any the week before. Me-made that is, I still wore clothes.

Plus, taking pictures of myself is getting SUPER BORING. I figured for the week I was on holiday I’d have loads of pictures of myself but turns out the weather was pretty pants so I lived in my rain mac all week.

You may be wondering what on Earth I’m doing.

Well this was the first day of holiday- we went to Great Yarmouth and on the way there stopped off in Norwich for a bit of sight-seeing.

We found a yarn fair!!!!

There was pretty much every type of wool from sheep, to Alpaca to pony, camel and even dog hair wool!IMG_7342

 

The best part was I got to have a go at spinning my own yarn!

(Don’t worry- she did actually have a head but I didn’t tell her I was going to put a picture of her on my blog so I rubbed it out 😉 )

So the first picture was me demonstrating my yarn- which was quite terribly spun and had thick and thin parts. But I’m still dead proud!

The milkshakes in Great Yarmouth are absolutely bloody amazing. This one is chocolate hobnob flavour. Probably the worst one but look how epic it still is.

We went to Banham Zoo which is absolutely fantastic. I got to feed some goats and they went a bit cray

Me-Made-May has been harder than I thought!

Wearing me-made clothes is not the challenge. The main challenge was taking photographs of myself every day. The other thing is trying not to repeat clothing too much- it’s pretty boring for you guys to look at the same photos for a month.

However, it’s taught me a lot about gaps in my wardrobe and the way I dress. I definitely need to make more tops, I knew this already but I don’t even own many tops so I wear the same ones constantly. I also need to make more in the way of accessories- knitted belts could add texture too but I don’t think it would be too hard to make some leather ones either.

I also need more cardigans (I’m always working on that one!) and since I pretty much lived in my mac for the week I’ve decided to have a go at Sewaholic’s Robson at some point.

 

I’m glad I took part because I have much clearer sewing goals now but I’m also glad to be done with photographing myself!

Did you succeed in your MMM14 challenge?
