I love Christmas, I always get so excited and now the clocks have changed its really winter so I can start planning with gusto! I love thinking about the entertaining that I want to do and organise the food menus, think about what and when to decorate. I even have a special notebook where I write my menu plans, shopping list and top tips. Its actually good to look back on as well to see what I cooked and for how many people! And this year I'm going to be wearing my new Christmas Apron!

So I've been loving making my Christmas Aprons, Tea Towels and Napkins ready for the Christmas Craft show season! My first one is a my nephew's school with several others in the following few weekends.

My Christmas Aprons and Tea Towels are ready

I've also made up gift sets, complete with gift tag to write your message on and mini peg to attach to your gift!

just the napkins to make now!

Monday, 26 August 2013

I've been getting ready for this craft show in the last few days. I know its a few weeks away but I want to make sure I have plenty of stock. So I've made more cards, tea towels & napkins. I should be getting some more fabric tomorrow so next weekend I'll be making more aprons.

I've also been planing some Christmas craft fairs. I'm hoping to do one at Radley College in aid of the Sobell Hospice Charity on saturday 23rd & sunday 24th November. Also Felsted School Christmas craft fair and another one in Witney on the 7th December.

So I'll be busy sewing as fast as I can and making Christmas cards too. My first 2 Christmas cards...

...and many more to come!

After my last craft stall back in June, I decided to make more cards, as these seemed to sell the best.
I've gone for a patchwork style. I also used some other fabric to make the pink cards. I found a couple of old tops to cut up. I'm pleased with the results.

I've been working out how to display them. My Dad made me a couple of lovely display racks but I need more space, so I've made these ones out of card. I hope they will be strong enough.

I also ordered a Coat Stand to hang my Aprons on. I'm hoping it will be more obvious what they are now!

I've got a wedding coming up and I know my friends are both into cooking so I've done  His & Hers label for my Aprons. I hope they like them!

And just as I was about to wrap them I realised I should have put their names on the labels! So I re-did the labels... much better.

I'm now going to offer personalised tags when I sell my Aprons!

Have spent this morning photographing my aprons so I can put them in my shop.

I've also been experimenting with new colours and scales.

I've just received the colour swatch for this and I'm really pleased. I think its a great kitchen colour!

Christmas is coming!

Wow, what amazing weather we are having at the moment! So this weekend in a bid not to miss out on the sunshine I set myself up in the garden in a nice shady spot and got to work designing for Christmas! Robins and holly, would you believe. 

Tricky to get fully into the Christmas spirit in 30 degree heat.

And this is the end result!

Just sent off for a swatch to see how the colours will print. Fingers crossed!

Chipping Norton Craft Fair

What a great day on saturday.
I did my first Craft Fair and loved it. I sold a few things and I got some lovely feed back from people.

Packing up ready to go...

Car loaded!

 Stall set up

All ready to go, just need customers!


I want to do another one now. Will have to see if I can find one soon! 

I had a few more people sign up to my mailing list. So if you want to know when I'm doing my next craft fair, have new products or have a promotion on sign up to my mailing list via my facebook page

So I've been busy preparing for my first craft stall. Only 2 weeks away now.
I've designed my price labels.

Made up some bags of loose lavender.

And I've been working out the layout of my stall.

Just a bit of time now to make some extra stock, incase I sell loads!

I've been busy making more cards for my collection. These are my two new designs.
To go with my original two designs.

I've also been making more Aprons. These are proving rather hard to photograph well so when I've done that I'll show you. 

I have a bunch of lavender hearts also coming along nicely.

They just need the lavender and then they are ready to sew up!

I've been busy making aprons the past couple of weeks.

All cut out, now the sewing.

And finally sewing on the pocket.

The finished Apron!
