Me Made May 2017 – drawing challenge

By Susan | Comments: 3 | June 2, 2017

And another Me Made May comes to a close. I don’t always do the challenge as I wear me made almost all the time anyway but it is fun to do and see where and what I actually wear.
Of course this year has been completely different as I threw in the challenge of surgery, hospital visit and recovery to the mix! Knowing that was coming up I had set myself an additional challenge to do a drawing of a fellow sewer every day.

I wanted to do this to increase my skills, practice and honestly in case I was too sick/in pain to be bothered to take my photos.

Luckily my recovery has been going well and I’ve been enjoying the drawings and the responses so much I am working on ways to do more  with my drawings, including ways for them to be printed.
And in no particular order, here is the months drawings.

Everyone was chosen for their inspiring makes, and I was wanting to work on different patterns so plenty of patterned garments make an appearance.

Thank you to everyone who has left lovely messages, regramed, tweeted or mentioned the drawings, it has been a privilege to showcase just a fraction of the talents of the entire online sewing community.

    Susan, these illustrations are beautiful! Did​ you make all of them in Illustrator?

    I would love to see a video of your drawing process!

      Oh so sweet, thank you.

      I use an app and my iPad pro with an apple pencil. I’ll work on a way to show some process shots.
