Me-Made-May 2015 pledge

I wasn't sure whether to join in with Me-Made-May this year or not. I bought two pairs of jeans last year and I have gotten so used to wearing them after spending years only rarely in jeans. It will be hard to give them up for a month. But I'm going to try! Also I don't have so many me-made cardigans or jumpers so it will be a definite challenge! Last year I participated in Me-Made-May but it was so hard posting pics all the time so I think I didn't even post them on my blog in the end. I hope that will be different this year.

 'I, Jodi Wade, sign up as a participant of Me-Made-May '15. I endeavour to wear only me-made clothes each day for the duration of May 2015 with the exception of undergarments and hosiery'.

I've just moved flats and with the packing (and starting of the unpacking) I have realised how I have really far too much fabric in my stash. Far, far too much. I don't know where to store all this fabric - I have even been thinking of buying furniture to store it all.  I came across the Stashbusting Sewalong 2015 which is just what I need. I'm joining a little late in the year but better late than never, right?

I have a lot of pieces of fabric I love which I have been saving for the perfect idea or pattern. Some I have had for years. I want to reduce all these. I will make a hard goal.

Stashbusting Pledge
 "I, Jodi Wade, commit to making 52 items from stash fabric in 2015. I also commit to not buying any new fabric except for that which I need to complete projects or for items for others until I have made things from at least 15 pieces of fabric."
