OK Craft Fair in Review

Well I survived! And had a great time! This past weekend I was honored to be included in a 50+ vendor craft fair. Unfortunately, I only got one, partial, bad, cell phone photo of my booth:

And I didn’t even get the part with the Dress Up Station housing all my clothes! For shame! I wanted to share with you some of the items that I didn’t have a chance to post to my Etsy Shop, and let you know what’s still available if you’d like to get some handmade Christmas gifts for anyone on your list.

As you can see, front and center in my booth photo, I had a great time making 6 different Pajama Eaters (Pattern by Sew Fearless). The first to go was the Super PJ Eater:

Then the Airplane Eater (not pictured) and the Cowboy Eater were next:

A little girl and her family came and snatched up the Collage PJ Eater with a bow:

I still have one available I hope to post to the shop this week.

Another item I have available is the Winter Holidays Lucy Tunic, available in sizes 12-18 months and 4T here in my shop. This 100% reversible tunic has classic in design, but is made modern with whimsical Christmas and Valentine’s prints. Both sides feature in-seam pockets and pleated cap sleeves. Buy a Christmas Tunic and you have Valentine’s covered too! Works great with a long sleeved shirt and jeans – comfy and festive.

Thanks to everyone who came by my booth to say hi – it really encouraged me to see some familiar faces! I hope you all have a wonderful Thanksgiving – there is so, so much to be thankful for! We’ll see you next week!

Olive Knolls Craft Fair

Olive Knolls Craft Fair

Every Saturday before Thanksgiving there is a 50+ vendor Craft Fair at Olive Knolls Church in Bakersfield, CA. It is by far one of the best craft fairs (if not the best) in town and if you follow me on facebook or instagram, you know I’ve been sewing like a crazy woman in preparation! Unfortunately, due to my sewing frenzy, I don’t have any better pictures than the few ipad pics I’ve snapped, so definitely plan to come on out to see it all in person! It’s at 6201 Fruitvale Ave from 8am – 2pm complete with pancake breakfast and/or soup or salad lunch (to benefit the school’s Washington DC trip) and a coffee bar (to benefit Olive Knolls Women’s Retreat)! Here’s what I’ve been working on:

To go along with the Super Happy Camper, I made a new pair of Coastal Cargos.

Here are a few pajama eaters, with hopes to make a few more this week

The Lucy Tunic (pattern by ShwinDesigns) in sizes 12 months to size 5. This pic shows it unfinished, but the Lucy Tunic is reversible with this Christmas Print on one side and a Valentine’s Print on the other – two shirts in one!

And fresh off the Longarm, a Batik Friendship Star Quilt

These are just the newest items I’ve been working on. I’ll also be bringing everything now active in my Etsy Shop and I’m so excited to be sharing a booth with Sarah Botts from Peanut Button. I will have special prices just for the craft fair so you won’t want to miss it!! Even part of my display will be up for grabs!

Can’t wait to see you there!
