Sleep? I don't need any sleep....

The craft fair I'm doing on Saturday is my first one, so there are a lot of things other than sewing projects that I needed to complete before showing up on Friday night to set up. I've made a sign, a monogramming options notebook, slips for a drawing I will be doing, shopped for a display for my bags (ended up with this), made order forms...and the list goes on.

I also needed to make an apron for myself (other than the one I cook in) to hold money and stuff. Check it out:

I used Patty Young's Mezzanine collection by Michael Miller Fabrics. I love this collection and knew I HAD to use it for MY apron.

Patty Young is a wonderful designer and has a new line coming out in December called Flora and Fauna. I wish it were out now so I could make some folks some stuff for Christmas presents with it! She has several different color palettes with this collection, which is a wonderful option to have. Which one do you like best? Leave me a comment and I will enter your name into my "fishbowl" at the craft fair this weekend. I'll be giving away an apron and a Buttercup Bag!!!

My First Craft Fair!

My friend Stephanie passed on some information about a craft fair at a church, and I decided to do it! I thought that it would be important for my first Christmas as a business to do at least one of these.

Here are the details: November 21, 8am-2pm at Sunrise Baptist Church, 3000 Sugarloaf Pkwy, Lawrenceville, GA 30045

The products I will have available for order are:
My deadline for Christmas orders will be Friday, November 27 at midnight. I plan on shipping those orders no later than Thursday, December 17.

I am a bit nervous about this craft fair (only because I've never done one before) so please come see me if you can!
