More Craft Fair Items

I am very excited about my first ever craft fair this weekend. Come and see lots of Western Kentucky Crafters at the Woodmen of the World Building in Benton, KY on Saturday from 9am to 5pm, and on Sunday from noon to 5pm. I will be there both days.

Found these 2 baby quilt panels on a sale table at a local sewing shop. This one has pink flannel on the back, and the bears have soft off-white fleece on the back.

What I Have Been Working On This Week

This cute little sea creature pillow was designed and made by my 7 yr old daughter Eliana. She did all the sewing on the sewing machine and the stuffing. I am so proud of her!!! She did such a good job. (I only did the snaps and some of the hand stitching)

Eliana was not 100% happy with the pillow, but was very happy to sell it to her sister for $1 :) LOL

these were made by Natasha. She did such a good job!! So proud of her

fun kitchen designs I am testing. Another kitty, pawprint dishcloths. Kitchen scrubbies are made from recycled mesh bags that you get potatoes, apples, and popsicles in :)

frog change purse, made to match frog purse I made recently. My design, unbutton eyes to open

fun curvy scarf

pretty lacy design

Sweet Dreams baby afghan

what do you think of these? I was at Fred's Dollar Store and saw these autumn kitchen towels and got them for myself, and then crocheted the tops for is supposed to be a pumpkin and the other one is an apple.

What I Have Been Working on This Week

Well, reality has set in, and I can see that after 2 weeks reaching my wednesday goal of posting what I was working on and 2 weeks of totally missing wednesday, that I will just start calling these posts What I Have Been Working on This Week (and hopefully I will be able to keep up with that) :)

I am having lots of fun trying to get ready for upcoming craft fairs. This is a first for me, so I am hoping I will have enough time to make enough things to sell for 3 days of craft fairs.

One thing I was doing this week was trying to design my own kitty cat dish cloth. Above are 2 versions of the same pattern. It is a work in progress, and I am not sure if I will try to sell these because they are not exactly what I was imagining, but they are not so terrible that I will rip them out. First pic is with the flash, but ecru kitty didn't show up, and second pic is without flash and you can see ecru textured kitty better.

What I Have Been Working on (not) Wednesday

revised.... added whiskers to the kitty after my family all said kitty looked like a pig :)

Kitty Bath Mitt finally has a face!!

more cotton dishcloths

Pretty purple scarf

here are a couple of fun and colorful curvy scarves

Got 2nd toddler sized strawberry hat finished

Made this pretty purse/market bag out of double worsted cotton. I got lots of this yarn on sale, and I am having fun thinking of things to make with it. No pattern, made it up as I went. A friend gave me the wood beads from a purse she had that fell apart.

Talon asked for a puppy dog hat this week. How could I resist? No pattern for this one, as I kind of made it up as I went along.
