My Pledge

It has taken me a few days to get back, but here I am. I had quite the fibro flare up, so was pretty much useless to anyone! I'm feeling better now, and I'm anxious to start sewing again! I generally try to sew a bit everyday, but sometimes it's just not possible. As I mentioned in my last post, I joined wardrobe refashion for two months. Here is a copy of my pledge.

I, Anne Maskell,(or, as I'm know on WR, Tigermomma442) pledge to abstain from the purchase of "new" manufactured items of clothing , for the period of 2 months. I pledge that I shall refashion, renovate, recycle preloved items for myself with my own hands in fabric, yarn, or other medium for the duration of my contract. I pledge that I will share the love and post a photo of my refashioned,renovated,recycled,crafted or or created item of clothing on the wardrobe refashion blog so that others may enjoy the joy that thy thiriftiness brings!

This project is so much fun. I have really started looking at things with a new eye. Something that looked useless has potential again! I've started going through my kids castoffs, looking for future projects. I've always tucked things away 'just in case'. But now when my daughter says 'Mom! You don't need it!' I can gleefully say, 'Yes I do!!' I've already made (re-made ?) a few items, as well as a few things from scratch. I posted them on WF within a few days of joining! Have a happy day everyone!      Anne
