#MMMay2017

I, Jessamy, jessamyb (insta), http://www.jessamybmakes.com (blog), sign up as a participant of Me-Made-May ’17. I endeavour to wear a handmade item everyday, and finish and/or make at least 4 garments off my sewing list, for the duration of May 2017. Just a little accountability for my #MMMay17 participation.  I’ hoping to take a picture documenting what… Continue reading #MMMay2017
