I am in big-time production mode for the craft fair October 2nd. Before last week, I had ever only made a few children's clothing items at once so it's really exciting to see all these creations together!!
My studio is a bit messy now but that's a good thing!
Colorful serger scraps in the trash can along with serger cones.
I have about 20 dresses made and am now working on girl's shirts.
It's hard to know how many items to make for my very first craft fair. If you have any suggestions, I'd love to hear them! thanks!

I have a love affair with vintage chairs and I can't seem to stop buying them! When they are only about $5 at the thrift store, they are hard to pass up.
I picked this one up about a year ago and still haven't replaced the fabric. But I totally love this chair from Thonet!! (behind the chair is a gorgeous easel and a stool my dad made for us).
This bentwood chair came next-it's a beauty but needs a little reinforcement underneath to be stable and maybe a new fabric top.
This blue vinyl and chrome chair from the 50's is now my sewing chair!
My recent addition is this Heywood Wakefield chair!
We have our house on the market and will hopefully be moving soon (within the same area) so I had better stop buying chairs (for now).
have a great day!
