I’m in full blown craft show prep mode over here, along with a quite sick little baby (who I think is finally on the mend, thank God!). The first show of the season is coming up on Saturday, if I have any local readers, I’ll be at the Donner Center Spring Craft Show from 9-3 in Columbus, Indiana. So anyway, I’ve hit that point where I’m running around like a chicken with my head cut off, I NEVER feel like I have enough stuff, so I can get a little crazy. Add to that a sick baby and other life stresses and I’ve been quite the basketcase (albeit one adorned with some fabulous ribbon and fabric flowers of course!).
This week I’m participating in I Made it Thursday over at Everything Etsy (this is a great blog for those of you love handmade, and for those that sell it). So in honor of that, ya’ll get a sneaky peek into the new stuff I’ve got coming up for this show. Above you’ve got a sneak peek of a monogrammed wallet keychain in progress. These are really cool, they’re just big enough to hold a few credit cards and/or your ID and some cash, and they’re quilted which just looks awesome. On the back side they have a snap shut pocket, and I’m using polyresin snaps (most commonly used on cloth diapers) so the closure is super secure…it will NOT just pop itself open and strew your life all over the place.
And this? This is a skirt in progress (well it’s finished now, but the lighting at 8am will make my already bad pictures even worse lol). I just love making skirts, and these fabrics I really love. They’re from the Farmer’s Market collection by Sandi Henderson. I’m pretty sure it’s discontinued now, but you can find it on Etsy and Ebay.
This dress is one of my stripwork Miss Madeline’s. I used Lila Tueller’s Soiree fabric for this one. These dresses are so time intensive, but I so love the result! And you can see my little “helper” there too..he never wants his picture taken unless I’m trying to take shop pictures.
So that’s what I’ve been making, how about you, what have YOU been making this week? Go and check out Everything Etsy, you won’t regret it!
