Me Made May 2014 Round up

I've been so inspired this month with all the loveliness online as people share their #mmmay14 pictures!

If you've managed to miss it, Me Made May is a challenge to encourage people who create their own clothes to wear and love them. It's not a competition or anything, just an awesome way to bring together a community peeps who love to wear their own creations. It's not about making lot's of new things, but looking in your wardrobe and remembering all those things you've made in the past too.

Everyone makes their own pledge (to themselves - there is no pressure or anything), most often it is to wear one item of clothing or maybe an accessory each day that they have made.

I didn't quite manage it every day, and sometimes I just didn't get a chance to take a pic, but here is my round up!
