My Pledge and Makes for #memademay2019: Mending and Using What I Have
Can I just say I love #memademay? This year it was totally on my radar and I was really excited about planning ahead for this month and being able to get on board to participate right when it started.
I really fought the urge to over commit myself to this challenge and focused on creating a pledge that I could really get behind. I also tried to keep in mind that if I didn’t follow the pledge to a T I wouldn’t beat myself up it; since I tend to look at all “challenges” as something to perfect. Whoops.
My pledge: 'I, Sharleen Graybill, sign up as a participant of Me-Made-May 2019. I endeavor to finish all old projects and use my current fabric stash for new projects during May 2019'
Let’s see how I did for the month of May.
Although I only showed four pictures here is the actual list I wrote down in my planner for this month. I think some I added but I don’t think over-mending projects is ever really a bad thing. Below is that actual list of what I wanted to accomplish this month. I had a picture of mending makes first and then working on new makes with fabric I already had. I was so busy with mending project though I never really got to much of the new projects.
Below is each make that I mended or made for May:
That’s it! What I love about this challenge is that it is really encouraging to make goals for yourself and to have some accountability through sharing with others! I also found this challenge super encouraging when I would check out what other sewists were doing and making throughout this month….which were some pretty amazing things.

A special thank you to Zoe from So, Zo… What Do You Know? for hosting and creating #Memademay to challenge sewists each year! If you are interested you can sign up here (or somewhere similar on her page).
Ta ta for now!
