Bags of Bags

So, tomorrow's Christmas Fair day at school.  I think I'm all set to go.  Everything's packed up by the front door, and I'll be setting up my stall during lunch break.  Does anyone else feel stupidly nervous before craft fairs???

Here's another quick show-and-tell of what I've been making, in preparation for the fair.  Today's 'topic' is bags.....


A grey, yellow and white stripy one:
      



A white, red, turquoise and grey spotty one:




A green, yellow, brown and white spotty one:




A turquoise, blue, lime and brown stripy one:




And an orangey-red, lime and yellow one: 




My favourite's the turquoise, blue, lime and brown stripy one.  I want to keep it.  Is that bad?  I may have to sneak it off my stall and keep it for myself.  We'll see how the willpower goes tomorrow.....

These bags were all made from the 'Buttercup Bag' pattern, from Made by Rae.  You can download the (brilliant) pattern for free here, and you can buy a license to sell them if you wish to do so.  

I'll let you know how the fair goes..... 

Bye for now!

  2. Good luck Carly. I always feel really nervous before a craft fair and never sleep well in the days beforehand! I'm not good at selling face to face - I feel awkward promoting my goods. Your bags are gorgeous and look really well made, I can't believe they won't sell. Let us know how you get on XX

  17. Well, the bag is really attractive and beautiful. There are several types of artisans availing the world with great and highly beautiful creations. I love to look for new artworks over web and wooden craft are most lovely creations. I prefer wooden handicrafts very much. Recently I came to visit website of one of the leading wooden handicrafts suppliers and found a great collection of attractive creations there.
