Weekend craft fair (and aprons and cushions!)

I did my second craft fair on Saturday.  It was in a lovely little town perched on the edge of the river Tay.  There was a steady stream of visitors and there was a really nice atmosphere, everyone was so friendly and it was great to be able to chat with customers and hear so many positive comments about my items.

Here is a pic of my stall on the morning, ready for action!


You can just see on the left of my table one of the little aprons I have been making recently.  Here are the two finished aprons that were ordered - 1 with a crayon pocket and 1 with a normal pocket (both personalised) -


Here's a close up of the crayon holder -


I think it turned out pretty cute!  I also added an applique heart to the dark pink apron as I think it looked a little bare...but I forgot to take a picture of this after I added it :(

I also made a couple of cushions for the craft fair, featuring a little elephant which you may recognise from some previous items I've made here and here.  It's just so sweet that I thought it would look really cute as a cushion perhaps for a nursery, so I've done a pink and a blue version -


I decided to also add a sweet little patchwork feature to the backs of these cushions -


I've put my name down to do some Christmas craft fairs so I'll get cracking on with the Christmassy items I've started to prepare.  While I was a the craft fair on Saturday I was also approached by a lady who asked if I'd be interested at having a stall at some other local events, to which my reply was a very definite 'yes'! Hopefully they'll work out and I'll have a few more craft events to attend and sell at....I'll keep you posted ;)
