My September Pledge: Self-Stitched September

So, Zo.... has offered up a brand new challenge/dose of inspiration for my week (and for the coming months):

'I, Meg the Grand, sign up as a participant of Self-Stitched-September. I endeavour to wear only handmade and refashioned items of clothing every day for the duration of September 2010'.

I wasn't able to take part in the "Me Made May" challenge that many of the crafters in blogland took on.  I enjoyed their efforts and decided that if another opportunity arose, I was definitely going to take it.  And so, I am making the challenge here for all to see!

Tonight is "Picture Night."  I have been making/refashioning items and not taking pictures of the finished products.  I made a swimsuit cover-up that was originally the tunic dress from One Yard Wonders (it ended up that way after I realized that elastic hates me), the Pregnancy Dress shirt that needs some more coverage but is mostly done, and several refashions of which I am extremely proud.  I look forward to finally sharing some of my progress and to creating more clothes for the September challenge!
