Me Made March: Week 3

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!)

  1. A fun collection here - and very well balanced - two necklaces, two scarves, two self-made items and the lovely silk-screen top as make-weight! I like the idea of using old neck-ties to make hair-bands... might give that a try (though I'm not sure what Mr LizzieMade will say if I raid his tie collection... will he even notice?!).
    Love your apron! I was pretty pleased with a gorgeous Irish Linen apron that I bought on Etsy, but yours is really gorgeous. I wouldn't wear it for printing or glueing though (the purpose of my linen apron), as it's just too nice!
    Have a good 4th Week! x

    1. Thanks Lizzie! I hope I don't run out of things before the 31st--I might have to recruit my kids if I do. If you can't steal a tie from your husband, you should try a thrift/charity shop.
