I don’t mind admitting, I’m a little underwhelmed by the reaction to the Made Up Initiative. It’s only taken you 48 HOURS to blow our goal out of the water. Two days to raise £1000, when the deadline was four weeks. I can’t wait to see what else we’re capable of achieving, and now I have to hastily reassess how best to use my mini-goals and incentives! Talk about a super-achieving and generous bunch. And people have been noticing…
We’ve been retweeted by the NLT, Guardian writers, by NIACE, and the Sewing Directory. What are people pledging to make? Included in the 104 pledges are a bikini, a galaxy print shirt, a unicorn blouse, PE shorts, jeans, pyjamas, a baby quilt… The list goes on and is inspiring. I’ve started my own work on the Vogue 5098 dress, but am really struggling to settle on a fabric choice.
If you haven’t pledged yet, you can find the Justgiving page here. If you want to support by adding a blog button to your blog or website, here’s the code:

And if you want to give yourself a big pat on the back, go ahead. You’ve just blown my mind.
