Self-Stitched September: Ready, Set…

Tomorrow is the first day of Self-Stitched September. I’m both looking forward to it and a bit apprehensive. I know I shouldn’t be nervous, but there are just so many participants across the web. I just hope I measure up.

I decided to make a little change to the parameters of my Self-Stitched September challenge. Initially, I thought I would wear at least one handmade item a day Monday through Friday. I’ve decided instead to wear what I feel like, with an emphasis on wearing my self-stitched items and documenting when, where and how I wear them. I think this will give me a more realistic picture of what will be useful to make in the future. It should also be interesting to see how often I naturally gravitate towards my own creations rather than store-bought clothing.

Here is my pledge:

I, Beth of Fresa Handmade, sign up as a participant of Self-Stitched-Sept ’11. I endeavour to wear my handmade clothing as often as possible each day for the duration of September 2011.
