I follow a few sewing blogs and have been seeing a number of people pledge to do a “Me Made” Month. They wear something that they have made everyday for a whole month. I have been thinking about doing it for a while … well guess what … I am doing it. Me-Made-June ’11 here I come!


I, Shannon Kline of whybuyitwhenicouldmakeit.wordpress.com, sign up as a participant of Me-Made-June ’11. I endeavor to wear one item that I have made or refashioned each day for the duration of June 2011.

So this means that everyday in June I will wear a piece that I made myself, refashioned, or upcycled. I am including clothing, jewelry and accessories in this because I just don’t think that I have enough clothing that I have made to last me the entire month. I promise to take photos everyday and share what that day’s me-made item is. If you would like to join you can find out about it on Zoe’s Blog.

Oh shit….I better get sewing!

I recently went to one of the many antique stores in town and dug through BUCKETS of old and broken jewelry. After about 2 hours in the place (most of the time was spend talking to the characters that worked at the store) I walked out with a whole bag of broken but fabulous stuff. I have remake some of what I got into new jewelry.

The yellow leafs were part of a broken bracelet. There were 3 groups connected together.

This was a bunch of broken pieces. The original gold necklace here was broken but just needed to be reattached. The blue beads were not attached to anything. I made one longer to layer them. The 4th strand is actually 3 bracelets that I put together. The white and gold bracelet was missing part of the clasp and the other 2 where simple gold bracelets. I like the way this turned out.

This is my favorite!

I found this hand and knew that it had to be a necklace!

The beads are some that I had left over from other projects. I would wear this all the time!
