My Next Challenge: Self-Stitched September ’11

This September I’m joining Zoe at ‘So, Zo…’ in a challenge to wear something handmade every day for thirty days. This post marks the beginning of the saga.

Self-Stitched September '11

I, Amy of sewwell.wordpress.com, sign up as a participant of Self-Stitched-Sept ’11. I endeavour to wear one self-stitched item each day for the duration of September 2011.

I should amend that to say “…one self-stitched or handcrafted item…” since I still don’t have enough hand-sewn garments to get me through thirty days, but I do have an awful lot of T-shirts that I screened myself. And, in all honesty, my daily uniform typically involves a T-shirt.

  1. This sounds like such a cool idea! I might try it, but mine would have to include handmade jewelry, too. I only have a handful of sewn clothes- not nearly enough for an entire month. 🙂

    And thanks so much for leaving me the link to the knitalong for beginners! The idea of making a sweater is ridiculously intimidating to me, but I’m still considering joining in. Perfect timing, I think! I’m hoping to pick up some tips along the way, even if I don’t end up with a wearable finished sweater. 🙂
