The Littlest Art & Craft Fair 2014

The Littlest is a week earlier this year. I'm looking forward to it and to having no craft fairs of my own in December. Hoping that means I will be more organized and relaxed for Christmas. We'll see if that actually happens.  I'm having some supersoft, fine wale corduroy skirts at the sale this year for the first time.  Here are some photos of the colour options. Also one woodland print in cotton that I debate keeping for myself...!  I had many requests for my little zipper change purses at the Cranberry Fair last weekend so I've managed to whip up a few of those for tomorrow. Saturday the 29th, 10 to 5pm - see you there.

My Apron Makes a TV Debut!

The lovely and talented Miche Genest of The Boreal Gourmet was wearing one of my aprons on TV this morning! Here is the link to the show, I'm not sure how long it will be here but it's worth a try. She is a local chef (and my neighbour!) and is busy writing her second cookbook (see TV interview). The apron pattern is from one of my favourite sewing books Simple Sewing. A thank you to Laurel Perry, another local talent behind the super cute sketches in Miche's first cookbook, who I think is the one that gave Miche the apron as a gift!

Putting My Market Bags to Work!

Some oldies and some goodies. I love it when I remember to bring my market bags to the grocery store (and feel extra guilty when I forget them since I make the darn things!). I'm happy to have some Market Bags for sale locally at The Collective Good. Did you hear their big news? They've moved to a space 10 times as big as the old shop and are also carrying modern furniture from Canadian made EQ3. The new space is just down the hall from the old, you can't miss it. Windows, a plant wall, spacious change room and more await you!

The Voila Blouse

I found this pattern from CaliFaye Collection via this online magazine Stylo. Both excellent resources for modern children's wear patterns. I made 2 for some February Birthday girls and they wore them right away I'm told - but removed them during spaghetti supper!

Bike Skirts Coming Soon!

Feeling like I've hit the big time when I received bolts of Japanese cotton/linen by Echino! The fabrics are brown, pink and green, not quite this vivid as the camera was in vivid mode by accident!! See below for a skirt photo in pink. These prints are discontinued for now and will be made into a-line skirts for this year's Arts, Crafts and Vintage Trunk Show on May 4th. Hope to see you there!
