During the month of March, I'm challenging myself to wear something handmade or thrifted each day. I'm posting each week how I did. You can see how I did in the first week here and the second week here. The whole idea is to connect with the clothing and accessories you choose to wear, making a conscious decision to support local designers and artists of all kinds.
Here's how I did this week:
March 12: Handmade computer part necklace from Periwinkle Dzyns in Winnipeg
13: Thrifted scarf (yes it's still cold enough here to be wearing scarves!)
14: Handmade necklace from Etsy
15: Hand woven scarf (see still wearing scarves!) made by Karen women of Burma
16: Apron made by me, fabric brought from Africa by Mr. Prairie
17: Silk screened top from Etsy
18: Headband made by me from an old necktie (a 10 minute project!)
