MMMay14 Week 3 Round-Up!

May 17, 2014 | Other | 10 comments

Hi All!

Here is my week 3 round-up of me-makes, and this was a really busy week for me- so busy that *confession time* I staged these pictures (except for the first day and the last) because I forgot to take the pictures everyday.. I know shame on me- but I promise this is what I actually wore this week- I was just so busy and it was really rainy and miserable too so there wasn’t much good light for taking pictures.

A busy week of what? you might ask- well *ANNOUNCEMENT TIME* – I have actually started work at Bra-Makers Supply! after BoobCamp, Beverly was so impressed with my bra-making skills and enthusiasm that she hired me on as her assistant. So I work there part-time helping develop her new patterns, helping her with her blog and generally just helping her work on all the projects that she wants to do but doesn’t have time for! I started on Monday and it has been AMAZING! I’m learning so much- and you can expect so much bra/swimsuit making in the future- now that I have Beverly in my life to help me if I ever get stuck!

But alas- now you can see the me-makes from this week!

DAY 11

This was on a very cosy Sunday, just relaxing with my family before I drove back up to start work in the morning. The me-make of the day was the purple sweat pants, which were drafted off of a pair of my dad’s sweatpants- gotta be comfy!

Some puppy-snuggle time!

DAY 12

For my first day of work I had to make sure that I had everything I needed- so I wore my trusty backpack!

This backpack is my one-and-only! I did a Throwback-Thursday on it!

DAY 13

The next day was another day for bags and carrying things, and as I cleverly added bags into this challenge, I can show you that I used my laptop case!

Look at that- not only a nautical theme but a handy pocket as well!

And this is what happens when you go to take a picture with mom around.. thanks mom I’m glad I bring out your inner 3 year old… lol 🙂

DAY 14

This was the third day of my job, and I was able to complete my green bra (started in BoobCamp) on monday and tuesday night and wear it to work for wednesday!

Loving the cut-and-sew foam and the partial band!

DAY 15

Thursday was all about leggings and a knit top- I wore the same knit top last week but I had made it up in a different fabric (it was purple with floral chiffon sides) and this on is just gold/white stripe- I love the high low style!

DAY 16

I had Friday off so I was able to wear a bracelet (no bracelets are great if your job is sewing lol) and I had to wear this one- it’s probably my favourite bracelet of the moment!- I call this my overstuffed charm bracelet.

This one I made with a black and metallics theme 🙂 I made this back last fall after I got back from the creative festival with my sister.

DAY 17

And today was all about being comfy- and I wanted to show you this amazing nighty my mom made me!

And she even made the matching sleep mask!

It was made from a vintage pattern and they are so comfy! I will be putting a post up about them on Monday!

Well that was my week round-up! I promise I will be better at taking daily pictures next week!

Hope your MMMay is going well this far in!
