My favorite time of year is back again! Fall and Halloween!! I have began making my fall creations including new Trick-or-treat bags, and I even made a new reversible quilted table runner…one side is Halloween and the other side is fall pumpkins!
September has been a pretty busy month for me…I have participated in two craft fairs/farmers market this month. One of the markets was behind the apartment buildings we previously lived in. The Markets were a lot of fun, and I hope I’ll be able to participate in some Christmas shows.
I have made several other bags the past two months, some examples are below! I have also finally updated my etsy site with several new listings!
It is the holidays in Colorado, and it has been cold and snowy! The past few weeks, I have been super busy with sewing and craft fairs. I have participated in two holiday craft fairs that took place in the suburbs outside of Denver including Aurora and Castle Rock. I made a whole new banner for my booth and I sold more of the CO tote bags that I began to make, and I continue to make more of the CO flag tote bags, and sell them at future craft fairs!
For the past few months I have been spending a lot of time making custom orders, sewing little Christmas bags, and preparing for the holiday shows, now I am taking a break to enjoy the holidays. Last week we went up to Keystone to go skiing, and this week I started a new position at my company. The view of the mountains from my office building is beautiful. The week before Christmas, I will be flying into Virginia to visit with my family, and for Christmas I will be here in Colorado. After the holidays, I will continue to sew and begin to prepare for future local spring craft shows!
I hope everyone has a safe/happy holiday and New Year, and check out my new listings on my Etsy site!
I have been living in Denver, Colorado for about a month now, and I have already participated in my first craft fair here last week! It took place during a first Friday at an art walk in the Santa Fe Art District in Denver. I only sold a few things, but I made a few connections and met some other great crafters. There was a big turn out at the art and craft show, and there were other great and unique vendors. This was a night market, the first one I have ever participated in. The weather was a little drizzly, but most of the rain stayed away, and it was not too hot and not too cold.
The past few weeks, I have made several new bags and I also began to sew little zippered coin pouches.
I have also visited several small business owned fabric stores in the City and outside of the City including “Fancy Tiger Crafts” and “Colorado Fabrics.” I love the fabric I located in these stores. There very unique looking and it is good quality fabric. I have began to sew crossbody bags and more cosmetic bags. I am also sewing with other material such as canvas.
I have also began to make little collar flowers for my dog! I loved how the skull flower turned out. Colorado is a very dog friendly place, and Lilly has received many compliments on her flower collars!
I have included more of my creations on my Etsy site!
