craft fair and gift suggestions



The craft fair on Saturday went pretty well. It's always fun to be surrounded by a lot of crafters/artists. It was so hard to resist spending the money I made! I did make a few trades which I'll have to show you tomorrow. So, so cute! Of course I don't have any pictures of the show since I forgot my camera, but hopefully my friend and fellow vendor Katie will put some up on her blog.

I have plenty of leftovers for my etsy shop. Mostly I have the metal frame purses. I showed you the smaller ones before and I also used the same pattern to make larger clutches. I love the way these came out. So much fun to make, albeit a little time consuming.




My house is now a totally disaster area (well it's been like that for a week), so I'll be spending the next few days before Thanksgiving cleaning up. Then I have to get started on Christmas gifts and prep for another show in December. What are you all making for holiday gifts?? I need some ideas for some quick projects.

I have been making cute little sewn retro shaped Christmas ornaments with a rick-rack loop. They are pretty fast and fun!

I am making checkerboards... they have a zipper at one end for storing the checkers. I used red/black polka dot fabric and they are turning out cute.

Also making market bags using just 1/2 yard of fabric for each one.

Those are really nice. I love the fabrics you used.

This is such a busy time of the year for all of us, isn't it....entertaining, shopping and STILL trying to get some sewing in??

That was a fun show. I have posted the pics on my blog! Good to see you.

sounds fun. I keep saying "next year I'm gonna do a craft show..." I am making fleece scarves for all my nieces, and lots of food gifts. I also wanted to make lots of ornaments for my tree, but have stalled on that. If I get a star made for the topper I will be happy.

Hi Katie, so nice to see you at the HH. I'm making market totes as gifts this year- four ladies on my gift list are taking a trip to Mexico so I figured they would use an extra bag to bring their souvenirs back in.
