September 1st is the kick off to a whole MONTH of wearing handmade clothes! In a structured, internet manner. With other people. And Flickr.

For those not in the know, SSS is the brainchild of blogger-Zoe, restyler extroidinaire and nautical style afficianodo. Sewists from ’round the world pledge to wear a certain number of handmade items – sewn, knitted, glued, beaded, restyled – whatever it takes! Here’s my pledge:

‘I, Patty the Snug Bug, sign up as a participant of Self-Stitched-Sept ’11. I endeavour to wear at least one handmade item, more if I can, each day for the duration of September 2011’

If you’re a maker, join in! The sense of community is great! There’s a Flickr pool to post daily photos and new this time around is the Facebook page! See you over there!
