craft fair preview!

Saturday will soon be here, the day of my first craft show ever!  I've been working in every spare moment to prepare sweet knitted and sewn items for sale, and I'm imagining how to arrange everything on my table when the day comes.  No matter what sells, though, the point is... I am going to actually sell at a craft fair! 

Here are a few of the things I've been working on:
Little jelly bean-shaped bags of rice will be fun "bean bags" for kids 
or can be hot/cold packs for adults.

felt tooth fairy pouches & felt baby shoes
For the pouches, the child tucks their tooth in the tooth-shaped pocket on the front and then Mom tucks the money inside the pouch!

knitting baby hats and attempting to read at the same time... not always successful

sewing up fabric beach balls
& my smallest fabric ball wearing a baby hat I just finished

fingerless gloves are ready to go
& every crafter deserves a chocolate break!

For those of you out there who have sold at a craft fair before, do you have any advice for me?

  6. So lovely!! Good luck at the craft fair! Are you still selling through Etsy? If you are, I'd love to scoop up some booties for my nephew due in March...but realize you may not want to mess with shipping from Italy!

  7. You deserve some kind of huge medal for working SO HARD at such a range of things--and all so pretty and colorful. I hope you sell the lot! But you are a star no matter what you sell on Saturday. Love you!
