The funniest thing happened today as I sewed all day trying to finish projects for the Peddlers Faire this weekend. That Deja Vu feeling, ya know like you have done something or been somewhere before.
It has been years since I have worked so hard at getting ready to sell my things at a park or boutique.
In fact the first time was in the early 70's, when my son's co-op nursery school had a fundraising sale.
My friend Suzanne and I made things and sold them to go towards tuition. It was so sucessful we started selling at local Arts and Crafts shows in the park. A customer named Carol first bought from us there and I sewed projects for her for her home for years after that.
Tonight I ran to Michael's for some last minute supplies and guess who I ran into. Yes, Carol. We talked for a while. Strangest feeling....Deja Vu.
Thought I'd show you some things I've worked on this week.
These shirts aren't to sell. I put some flowers on them for my friend Ruth.
I got the shabby flowers here. They come by the yard and are very
cheap resonable. You can get white, cream and black.
I saw a lot of pins at Remnants of the Past last week, so thought I'd try some with these flowers.
I raided all my button jars and tins, added a ruffle of tulle and a button.
Some are pins and some I put hair clips on.
I showed you a couple of these bags last week and said I wanted to add some embellishment.
Back to the button jar where I found some fun ones then added some ribbon and ric-rac.
I found this downloadable patten on line and made some of these. There is an apple bib too, but didn't get those made...cute though.
I don't have a lot, but it will be fun as 4 of my group of friends are sharing a booth. Two of them are selling jewelry they made, and two are selling antiques and collectibles.
It will be fun and I will get to walk around looking for treasures too.
Of course there will be pictures!!
