With Christmas postal deadlines looming and a market to prepare for I really should have stayed focussed, however having seen this lovely use of scraps and then linking to the tutorial I got distracted! The result? A 16″ quilted square to be used for … something! I loved doing it and what a great use of little scraps, and I have PLENTY of those!
I didn’t feel too guilty because I’ve managed to get lots done, see here, and, as you can see, the doll is almost done. It’s the first time I’ve made a doll and the face has been a sticking point – really all I need to do is the mouth but I seem to be stuck!
The two little notebooks were made from recyled paper with vintage picture book covers – an idea for the market.
So this is where I have my QUESTIONS. I have seen how willingly many of you give advice/info/tips and I’d really like to tap into that if I may. I know that a lot of you have done markets before and also that a lot of you go to craft markets.
I guess my questions are:
Do you have any tips for me or can you point me to a blog/website that could help?
Have any of you spent a lot of time doing something prior to a market only for it to be not be necessary?
Did you find at your first market that you really wish you did/had something that would have made your life easier?
Any practical tips for setting up a stall?
Would you tend to make lots of a couple of products or less of more products?
And so the list goes on. Really anything would help. I’m very excited about the prospect of doing a market but would truly welcome any advice!
And of course I couldn’t ask for something and not give in return because that just wouldn’t be fair! So as a BIG THANK YOU for any comments on this post EVERYONE will go into a hat and a person will be picked for a little something. That little something hasn’t been made yet but I’m thinking vintage fabric, buttons, linens, Christmas ……..
Many thanks in anticipation! xx
