I had the opportunity in February of 2015 to sell some of my handmade items at a local craft fair/farmers market. You can read more about how I got the opportunity in my first post about it. And I talked about sewing everything else in post #2 and post #3. I wrapped it all up here.
Timeline: January and February 2015
Patterns Used: inspiration from Pinterest, but, other than that, this is all my personal patterning
Fabrics: my stash … so much of my stash
My Favorite Part: I really like the cloud coin purse. The blue lace cosmetics bag is my favorite hands down. I really love them all though.
Techniques and firsts: It was my first craft fair. A lot of the things I made were first-time things for me, but I wouldn’t really consider any of them firsts. I guess it was my first wallet. Most notably, though, this was my first time sewing specifically for selling and my first time sewing so many little projects in such a small time frame. It was definitely an exercise in time and money management.
Total Cost: $30 for notions and a few fabrics. Everything else was from my stash!
A few of these items are available on my etsy shop right now, by the way.
