That’s a wrap! Me Made May and daily photos are officially over. I made it the entire month wearing only clothes that I’ve made. Thanks for following along with me on this adventure.
2016 has been a prolific making year for me. All together, I sewed or knitted 100 items, including 24 garments for myself, 45 for others (mostly baby presents and bandanas for Zamboni), and 31 for the house. Every year I like to reflect back on what I’ve made, what worked, and what didn’t. Thanks to Crafting a Rainbow for the annual inspiration! You can see my previous roundups here: 2014, 2015.
Back to school, back to school, to prove to Dad that I’m not a fool. Now that I’m entering my 19th year of school, I’m pretty sure my dad doesn’t think that I’m a fool, but that song still gets stuck in my head every fall.

I’ve made my own swimsuits for three summers in a row now. I haven’t bought a swimsuit since, uh, maybe college? At this point, I feel like I’ve mastered a few things, and want to share some tips and tricks.
Every year around this time, I look forward to reading fellow blogger’s recaps of their makes of he past year. Thanks to Crafting A Rainbow, many bloggers post their top 5 hits and misses of the year. Here are mine.
