I have done a couple of markets lately and although they were fun, they do come with a certain amount of uncertainty. Like what if nothing sells and I get stuck with everything?
So I decided that if I made things that I'd be happy to either give as a gift or to have in my house I can be happy that at least some of my unsold items will be put to use.
I do like these owls, I made some last year as Christmas pressies and my friends loved them
I sold quite a few bright owls, but not so many of the not -so-bright ones.
|My favourite is the brown one on the left, he has corduroy eyes|
I sold several of the driftwood Christmas trees I made and couldn't resist keeping this little one for myself
And I seem to have gone a bit bunting barmy.
I made some of the little Christmas stockings into a garland.
|I'll be keeping this one I think.|
I made some of Attic 24's crochet snowflakes and strung those onto a garland
I made some Christmas fabric bunting (I also made one with much bigger flags which is waiting to be put up by someone with much longer limbs than me)
I made some out of felt ornaments
It was a lot of work to get all these done and I was actually quite pleased to be able to keep some of the items for myself.
I'm glad I like what I make!
