I took part in a craft fair at a local school last Friday. I did ok in the end, although not so much with the things that I had there of course! I had one christmas stocking from last year and hadn't bothered to make more, but then got 5 orders for them! So I have been busy making them this week.
I never seem to sell the things that I think I will go! I made loads of these red and white fabric and button hearts, which I was selling cheaply - and only sold one (thanks Vicki and Josh for liking the furry one!).
I was thinking of adding them to my folksy shop, but I have only sold one thing on there so far and until I get a bit of a customer base going, I figured 3 weeks till christmas was a bit late for me to start adding christmassy bits and pieces!
I also made this bunting, which didn't go either!
I have decided to go with a red and white theme for the christmas decorations this year in our house!!
Now please excuse the shameless self-promotion but I have added something new to my folksy shop. A post of so ago I gave a little teaser about what I was making, well they were these......
A sweet little tooth fairy fabric envelope! A lovely keepsake for any little ones with wobbly teeth! They are only £4.50, if I have lots of viewings on Folksy, I will add some different fabric ones (you can see some of the others in the top picture. Fingers crossed these will sell well!
I love the 'dear tooth fairy' on the front that F wrote for me, I then scanned it, reversed it, printed it on transfer paper, ironed onto cream fabric, cut it out and sewed it on the front! It is brilliant stuff, I just got mine at the supermarket and have used it for loads of things!
I am going to make something similar as little presents for the kids school teachers and neighbours, and fill them with sweets or chocolate!
