I finished sewing a few things for the sale and I thought I’d pop in and show you. The bears are made from felted sweaters and printed cotton. I drew a simple bear then stitched, stuffed, and sewed on the features. Easy peasy. The denim and cashmere one is my favorite. I think it would be perfect for a little baby boy, but I have no idea if people will even buy these. I’m not much of a shopper (except for thrift stores and target) so I don’t really know what people buy or how much they pay for things. So how much would you pay for a bear like this ? They are a little under a foot tall (1 foot = 30 cm), machine washable, and super soft.

These are all the pillowcase dresses I’ve finished so far, but there are a few more cut and ready to go in my studio. I wasn’t going to make so many, but a showed a few to my friends and they were quite taken with them, so I whipped up some more. It doesn’t hurt that they are dead easy to make. And you can make them to fit girls from 6 months to 5 or 6 years old. For these I’m thinking 16 dollars a pop, what do you think? I haven’t sold stuff from a booth since my lemonade days, so I’m a little nervous about all of this. Tagging, pricing, talking up the things I’ve made. And this sale is the first of it’s kind so there could be a couple people there or hundreds. Nobody knows.

    $16 a POP, that is pretty good. I am not kidding you, I just got a dress that is the same design at a little place in San Francisco – it is for my god-daughter who turned two. It cost $60. EEEKKKSSSS! I have not looked at where you are from, but if you are located in a major city – you can get more than $16. Do you do mail order?

    These are adorable! I just found your site today but had to comment because I was interested to see how you booth went? Are you planning to do more? I ask because I have been thinking of quitting my job and becoming a craftster/booth lady myself. Just wondering how it went for you. Email me back at with details or just post about it here. I subscribed so I wouldn’t miss a thing.
