Sewing, crafting and whatever else pops into my head

Me-Made-May 2016

Me-Made-May ’15

Wow, it’s been a year since I’ve posted. So many changes, so much sewing. I’m going to try posting a bit more (and other exciting changes). But I think I’ll start small and post this year’s MMM pledge. I, Michee Rose,

First Cake

    I finally got around to trying some Cake patterns. Why ever did I wait so long? Seriously, everything went together like a dream! First up, my first Tiramisu. I cut a 30D/32.5 (with a small amount of consultation

I’m not dead yet!

Just a quick post to say hi. No finished objects to show just yet. I’ve been prepping for shows (success!), then vacation (fun!) and then recovering from vacation. 🙂 I finally made it into my sewing room yesterday, but I’ve

Sweatshop Sewing

Rest assured, I have not given up sewing after a packed month of Me-Made-May. No, not nearly. I have, however, been doing relatively uninteresting sewing. I’ve been sweatshop ping armbands for our studio swap meet and boutique, the swap being

MMM week four and wrap-up

So here it is, halfway through the first week in June, and I’m finally writing my Me-Made-May wrap-up post. Overall, it was a success. I did wear me-made items every day and photograph it every day. It was an interesting
