My First Craft Show

My First Craft Show

It is likely that I made too much, especially since I'm sharing the table with Sarah and Martha from The Chicagoland Craft Collective.

The show is tomorrow (Sunday, Nov. 4) at Durty Nellies in Palatine, IL.

I made crochet flowers:

Travel tissue holders. I know that a lot of people make and sell these, but mine have rick-rack and gussets:

Embroidered applique pouches:

And several felted sweater totes with embroidered applique:

Wish us luck!

Thanks! We had a fun day. The show had a steady trickle of customers but unfortunately was never very busy. The selection of vendors was excellent. We'll do it again next time!

I was wondering how you made your felt envelopes? I love making handmade cards and thought these were just perfect and would love to add them with my cards.

Sonya- I tried to email you, but I don't have your email address. The simple answer is that I got the pattern from an Aronzi Aronzo Japanese book. The book is coming out in an English language version from Amazon:
