ICYMI: During the month of February, I challenged myself to wear something I've made (or significantly altered/modified) every day. I'm calling it the #DIYfebruary Challenge.
See how the first two weeks went: #DIYfebruary Part 1
Hey hey! February is done, so it is time to share the second half of my #DIYfeburary challenge, which was a smashing success! I am impressed that I didn't miss a single day-- of both wearing a handmade item (the easy part) and photographing the evidence (however terrible the selfies may be).
I did not quite manage to wear everything I have up in Walla Walla that I made or significantly modified. I spent a full day of my winter break last January taking up the hem of a pencil skirt I purchased (including the liner), and I didn't wear it because there wasn't a business casual event to wear it to this month. There were other odds and ends that also I didn't manage to fit in, like a scarf I made in 2007 that should stay in 2007, and my first pair of socks that were always way too big for me.
And so, here are weeks 3 & 4!
|Feb 15: Halifax Beanie // Feb 16: Green Shirt & Halifax Beanie|
|Feb 17: Au Naturel Handspun Scarf // Feb 18: Blustery Thermal Headband|
|Feb 19: Aidez Cardigan // Feb 20: Au Naturel Handspun Scarf|
|Feb 21: Beaded Beanie & Aidez Cardigan // Feb 22: Gridiron Bordeaux Hat, Afmaeli Sweater & Princess Bride Socks|
|Feb 23: Elizabeth's Hat & Hela Sweater // Feb 24: Beaded Beanie & Shirred Yolk Sweater|
|Feb 25: Sky Scarf // Feb 26: Aidez Thermal Headband & Shirred Yolk Sweater|
|Feb 27: Cotton Candy Earrings, Second Scarf & Greenfield Cardigan // Feb 28: Gridiron Bordeaux Hat & Cotton Candy Earrings|
And again, there are a few pieces that have yet to be featured on the blog. They'll be coming up during the next posts.
As a final recap, here is a collage of the full month of #DIYfebruary.
So that is how I completed the #DIYfebruary challenge. Maybe in 2019 I'll do it again! (Who knows where I'll be at that point...)
Until next time,
