Maybe you’ve signed up for Me-Made-May this year and you’re wondering how on earth you’re going to “wear” a handmade item every day. Or maybe you just like to make your own stuff.

I’d love to hear if you’ve made these patterns so I can include some examples with the listing! Let me know in the comments- or tell me if there’s a pattern that I might have missed! I’m finding more all the time, but it’s not possible to find them all on my own.
