I mentioned about a month ago in this post that I'm trying to stock up for the upcoming market season, and make as much as I can now, while I have the time off from orchestra work. Market Season and the orchestra season begin within one week of each other in early October. My goal is to be well prepared for both!
I'm mass producing things that I can be pretty certain I'm going to need:
I'm always looking for ways to streamline my production process. A BIG time saver on these is to hot glue the yo-yos on, rather than sewing them on. They look better and are more durable too. (Just don't tell the Sewing Police.)
The little button embellishments on these are glued on, too.
And I've started a new project that I've been wanting to try for months. I found a tutorial way back in
December for embellished dish towels that I thought would be fantastic addition to my market inventory, as well as a lovely item to make for gifts. I mean, everyone needs dish towels, right?
I had some leftover applique pieces from another project that I used for this set of gray towels. I like how bits from Amy Butler's "Soul Blossoms" collection look against the gray background.
As with all new items, I can only create them, put them out on display, and cross my fingers!
