My Me-Made-May 2013 Pledge

 I, Seamstress Erin of SeamstressErin.com, sign up as a participant of Me-Made-May ’13. I endeavour to wear a handmade garment each day for the duration of May 2013 I’ve been admiring other bloggers doing Me Made May for a couple of years now and I’m excited to take part myself this year! (Not familiar with MMM? Read Zoe’s explanation.) If you want to follow along closely, I’ll be posting a photo every day on Flickr and taking part in conversations on twitter with #MMMay13. I’ll blog a few summaries during the month, and I’m sure I’ll have some concluding thoughts at the end!
