My First Christmas Fair Stall

4 December 2011

My first sale went really well at my school's Christmas Fair. My daughter was there to sell her wares too and man the table for the first hour, whilst I worked. It was a lovely atmosphere and quite a busy two and a half hours. 
I was quite nervous about pricing and whether anyone would actually buy my makes.
I needn't have worried because there was lots of interest and lots of lovely compliments. I also made a decent amount of cash, which will be going towards Christmas. I am a very happy bunny!

 On top of that, I am thrilled that a few friends have placed orders for a selection of custom made Christmas decorations and lavender hearts. I will show these in later posts as well as gifts I've made for friends and family.
I made this lavender bag for one of my older male cousins. He was quite impressed with my work and finger's crossed I might be able to sell my makes at Portobello market next year. This is quite exciting for me and has really boosted my confidence in my sewing skills. So in the meantime I'd better get myself off down to the fabric market and get sewing. But, first I must get on with completing my Christmas orders...

Have a fab week!
