I was tired of trying to find dresses to fit my girls. They were either not cute enough, not appropriate for there age, or too expense so I decided to make them some. They turned out really well and the girls really like them. They like them so well in fact that they love to play dress up with them.
My friend Anny called me on Nov. 6th and said "I signed up for a booth at the Craft Fair at the Best Western next weekend and I won't have my stuff done. Do you want it?" I said Yes and spent the week making blankets and burp rags. I had enough in fabric in storage to make atleast 8 blanket fronts (it's all I have time for). I did buy fabric for a couple of the boarders and backs and the batting. I spent one day making burp rags and made 34.
I had a lot of fun even though it was kind of slow. The first day I only sold 1 burp rag. The second day I sold 7 burp rags. I made $34. Not one of my blankets sold but I had a lot of people comment about them being very nice and great colors. There is another Craft Fair coming up in a couple of weeks so I'm going to spend some time to increase and expand my inventory. At the next one I hope to have dresses, outfits and pajama's also available.
