Craft Fair In Kent, Anyone Interested

I have booked a stall at a craft fair which is supposed to take place in Rochester, Kent on the 5th August 2012.  The lady organising it is having trouble getting stalls booked so if anyone out there lives near by and is interested please let me know and I can pass on the details.  The stalls are £25 and its from 10 am till 2 pm.

More Fabric Baskets

I made these smaller ones this afternoon, finished them off by blanket stitching the lining and outside together around the top edge as I thought I would have trouble sewing them together on the machine.  I will definitely be making up some more of these.

Sewing Baskets

I made these fabric baskets over the last few days, I made 5 altogether.  I have bought some bits and pieces to go in them, just need some better scissors and they will be ready to sell.

The first photos are the empty baskets and the next two are them with the bits in.

Felt Key Rings

The other things I have been making are felt key rings.  I had a lot of felt laying about and lots of ribbon and beads and someone suggested I have a go at making some as they might draw the kids to the stall.  They have been a new challenge as they are quite small to work with and have all been made by hand.

Kiddies Bags

The next things I made for the stall were some little girls bags.  I think I should have made them a bit shorter as they have come out very tall and skinny, probably because I forgot about the bits that would fold back for the gusset down the sides.  They look better when they are opened up as if to use them to carry something but I needed to fold them up to store them.

Dolls Quilt and Pillow Sets

I am keeping my fingers crossed that I might have the chance to have a stall at a craft fair this year.  Just in case it pulls off I have been making up some smaller bits and pieces that might sell.  The first things I made were some doll's quilt and pillow sets.
