I have made many thins in the past years, and many I would have liked to share, but the longer I went without posting, the more difficult it felt go get back into it.
|My mini quilts!|
So tomorrow, from 10-16 I will join the "Koffermarkt", a craft fair where everyone presents their handmades in a suitcase. The initial motivation came from my stash - I had (and still have) a lot of great fabric that I once loved, but I just don't find exciting anymore. In order to free up space and still use this material, I made drawstring bags, mini quilts and zipper pouches over the last few months. Since the same goes for my yarn stash, I also made armwarmers and fingerless mitts for the market.
|Fingerless Mittens! The black smudge is actually a pair of mitts, the same pattern as the pale green ones.|
I'm so excited for tomorrow, to see if anyone is interested in my stuff, and also what the other people are selling! I have no doubt that some of the money I will (hopefully) earn will go right back into handmades.
And if I sell nothing, I will have christmas and birthday presents for the next few years, haha.

So, off to market I go!
