Welcome to week one of my Me Made May project!
A couple of disclaimers: I make clothes because I love handmade!! I love the process of making, I love how you can sew a seam and turn it right side out and see something so clean, and I love the discovery process about what looks good and what designs are right for me, etc! This isn’t about taking pictures of myself everyday and “showing off!” It’s about my discovery journey about good handcraft and learning how to be excellent and skillful in making! There is nothing that teaches me more patience than sewing and altering clothes. For sure!!!
Thank you for enjoying the journey with me!
