This year I got to go in with my friend Sally and her mom on their room at the Canterbury Bazaar. I agreed to it about 5 months ago and did most of my sewing the last 5 days. Ugh! But I got some stuff done and I was grateful for the stuff that hadn’t sold yet on Etsy.
So I got it all set up and got to admire all the stuff my friends had made, too. And then I went home and prayed that I would sell something…
Sally’s niece made this adorable ring stacking toy!
Cheryl made these fun and whimsical baby sets
and this quilt
some of my handmade soap
and all of the baby balls (in about 2 hours)
I have to admit I was pretty excited because I’ve never made anything that people actually bought. But now the debate is whether or not to make more of them for the bazaar I am doing with my sister in a month??? What the heck…
So I went out tonight and spent some of my earnings on fabric to make more bags and balls. It was all on sale and I didn’t spend that much, so I hope it pays off.
I bought this one because I love pink and green and had fabric at home to match. Bonus!
This one reminds me of Eric Carle’s “Very Hungry Caterpillar” though I don’t know why??? It’s fun, too!
this one is my FAV!!! The dragons’ fire is even glittery!!!
I just liked the doggy print with the paw-print accent
this one is for baby balls
This is for people who like more traditional baby prints
These are for people who like more unique baby prints ( I love these!!!)
Sally also told me about a cover she had seen once for notebooks, so I decided to give one a try. I figured I could do it, and I did… I love the way it turned out. I think I’ll make some of these for the bazaar, too. Maybe I’ll even make some for mommies without the handles (or the crayon holders)???
I’ve got a lot of sewing to do! I’d better get going…
