I'm a little late joining the #memademay party as the month is nearly over, but I've been thoroughly enjoying my instagram feed over the past weeks! Everyone's interpretations have been so varied, ranging from wearing handmade, making time to sew new clothes, finish old projects, or alter and embellish clothes they already have. I didn't think I'd done anything to take part, but I realise I am wearing the first item of clothing I have made from scratch following a pattern for over 5 years today, and most of my clothes have already been embellished or tweaked or repaired over the years. This blue top I've been working on started out as a white long sleeve tunic, and over the years I have shortened the sleeves, dyed it blue, and have started adding hand stitching to the yoke and shoulders. It's super crumpled as it's been hiding in a project bag for about 6 months! The red flowery dress is from a charity shop, and had a button makeover after coming to me. Such a simple way to customise your clothing! Here's to wearing what you want, making things for yourself, and repairing the clothes you love ❤#herringboneshop #memademay #customise #wearwhatyoulike #upcycledclothing #makersgonnamake #sewersofinstagram #nailsworth #cotswolds #lovedclotheslast

Sometimes, when opshopping, you find a ‘just because dress’. A dress that you love but have no occasion to wear it to. However, the rules of opshopping decrees that you must make it your own. Mom didn’t make these rules, she was just obeying them.

Mom found this cute little Zara dress at women’s refuge op shop a while back. Doesn’t she make a dress look cosy!

My first Art-A-Whirl experience is in the books! A major, major thank you to each and everyone of you who came and visited, maybe found some art from ANY artist to take home and love, and all of you who liked and supported my posts from afar... I wish to send love and warm, positive energy to each and every one of you! ✨💕✨ A very special thanks to @weshopamano and @brittakauppila_metalsmith for sharing their studio space with me... and these two lovely ladies for modeling their treasures ❤️ @acwestphal and @jolenemt 😊 a conversation at Art-A-Whirl came up in the studio I was in which is very important to address.. about the emotional challenges of being an artist. You work and work on your own on building up a collection of pieces that share your soul, on some level, and it’s scary! All artists have shows that are good, and shows that are great, and shows that are not so great. All artists wonder if they are being seen and heard. We want to share our love with anyone who will listen. But it’s so easy to feel alone. That’s why weekends like Art-A-Whirl, liking our posts, and sharing kind words with us are amazing to us! Thank you, thank you, thank you! I cannot say that enough. To each of you who believe in me- you are why I am still here, posting away! And keep spreading your love! Buy art, love art, make art, and just keep sending your energy to creative spirits. And makers- keep making. I am slowly filling my house with your art... as fast as I can without getting in trouble hahaha! Stop wandering big chain stores and “buying stuff.” Redirect to something so much more meaningful- this is the “makers’ movement.” Thanks, again 😘. #consciousliving #consciousmaker #artistsofig #buyart #supportsmall #supportlocal #artawhirl #artawhirl2018 #artisttoartist #artistsoninstagram #supportartists #makersmovement #makertomaker #makersmarket #positivevibes #positiveenergy #goodwnergy #artstagram #artshow #guestartist #weshopsmall #upcycledclothing #nemaa #neminneapolis #twincitiesart #twincitiesmakers

I had a wonderful conversation with a colleague about sustainable fashion today. While I'm as guilty as the rest for sometimes buying cheap ready made fashion, I do make a concerted effort to buy local and support artists and businesses with sustainable practices. I would rather wear something with meaning. It's a better way to start a conversation, and a direct reflection of my values. Steps in the right direction. #heartonmysleeve Jewelry by @rosaleehoward .

I updated this little vintage box handbag last night with an embellished iron on badge that I cut off a blouse. How cute?

I thrifted this beautiful dress from goodwill. I fell in love with the pattern and the material the moment I saw it. It’s was over sized so I decided to turn it into something completely new. #thrifting #thriftwhatyoulove #goodwill #upcycledclothing #oldtonew
