i have a huge craft show coming this friday and saturday after thanksgiving. finding time to really power through and get my inventory stocked has been really difficult lately. so my dear sweet kind thoughtful loving giving wonderful husband took the kids all day yesterday so i could shut myself up in the playroom at my sewing desk and sew like crazy. all. day. long. it was wonderful, not without its many interruptions, but wonderful nonetheless. here's what i was able to accomplish:
7 covered journals, with a pencil pocket in the inside flap and a ribbon tie closure. these fit perfectly over a standard composition notebook, and are refillable. great for students and anyone who likes to make lists, take notes and doodle (ummmm.... that would be me).
6 checkbook covers, with 2 inside pockets and an elastic band to hold it all shut. so much beter than the boring black one that came with my purse. i must keep one for myself.
4 colored pencil rolls with 10 pencils included, finished with a ribbon tie closure.
3 crayon rolls (so far). once i buy crayons each one will include 12 crayons. perfect in the car for a little artist.
and this was another fun project i thought i'd throw in here. i needed a sign of sorts to help set my booth space apart, so i pieced this banner (?) together with scraps of paper. its a little bigger than i anticipated, but i think it'll still work. sorry for the lousy pics!
and here's a close-up of some of the details - alittle fabric, buttons and tags add some fun embellishment.
if you're local, come see me at the vets hall friday and saturday from 10-4. its gonna be HUGE! i'll be offering an online coupon code to all my customers (oooh!) and you can get your hands on some of these items before someone else does. whatever doesn't sell at the show will be put in my shop on monday.
