Ordering via the website, the patterns will be sent to you via email as a PDF. These are easy to print off at home on A4 sheets, just stick together with tape.

Anna’s patterns have been tried and tested in our workshops at the shop and are designed for beginners. Nice simple patterns with simple fastenings and very wearable in 100% cotton. You will be making them over and over again!

So what is it? For those of you who haven’t taken part before then here are the details

Me-Made-May (or #memademay2020 as it’s also known on instagram) is an annual challenge for people who make their own clothes, launched by blogger and maker Zoe Edwards.

The idea is to encourage makers to develop a better relationship with their handmade wardrobe, by asking them to pledge to rethink how they wear their garments throughout the month of May.

It doesn’t matter if you’ve only made one skirt ever or have a wardrobe bursting at the seams – everyone can set their own individual pledge. The challenge aims to get you to wear your me-mades more often and more thoughtfully – to learn some useful lessons about yourself, your style, your body, your creativity along the way.

What started as a solo project has grown into an annual phenomenon, with sewists, knitters, crocheters and refashioners all wearing their handmade wardrobes with pride. If you like the sound of it, it’s not too late to sign up for the 2020 challenge. Remember this is not a photography competition – or an instagram photo challenge – so don’t be daunted!

Your pledge can be as simple or tricky as you want it to be, but it’s a great opportunity to move beyond your comfort zone or level up how you wear the garments you have spent hours crafting.

The goal should be to think about your relationship with what you create.

A big Thank you to everyone for your support,  we are all going through this together and we will all get through it together.

If you would like to support us but you don’t need anything right now?
You can share our social media posts, big us up to your friends or even buy a gift voucher to use at a later date.

Most importantly please look after yourselves and each other, crafting can be a great comfort in anxious times but the health of you and your loved ones is the most important thing
