In a few short days I will go from being a lady of leisure, (or as close as I get to being one) to a violin playing, market vending whirlwind! The Hyde Park Market starts its fall season on Sunday, then Florida Orchestra rehearsals begin next Wednesday, then the Seminole Heights Market is on the following Sunday!
I feel like I'm as ready as I could be for all events!
To keep busy and out of trouble for the remaining few days, I have become obsessed with sewing some Little Things.
It's out of necessity:
But you can always find storage space for a few little things. And I think it's always a good idea to have a stock of inexpensive items on hand to sell at markets.
That cupcake fabric was in the remnant bin at Joann's, and I just couldn't resist it.
I used this tutorial but with one change: the instructions call for a 1/2" seam allowance, which I found made the finished product too small to hold the tissue pack. A standard 1/4" seam allowance worked just fine.
I think that's a great looking display for the market!
And I couldn't resist doing a selvage one for the "Other Selvage Items" section of my Etsy store.
