Recapping #mmmay18

It's now the end of May and I can't say I'm sad for the end of Me Made May. I didn't realize sticking to my pledge of wearing as many me made pieces was going to be so difficult. The reasons for this:

April18 Recap

Oh what a month! I had to travel for a tiny bit, which resulted in far less time to sew than normal. Somehow I still eeked out a handful of makes though!
