|Oh good grief - why can't I see the chaos when I'm there, it is only in the photos that I spot it!|
On Saturday Polly Polkadot jewellery will be at RSPB Ynys-hirs annual craft fair. It runs for a fortnight, and I just have to set up my stall and then the staff run the shop and take a commission at the end.
So what am I doing with all that fabric? Well, I thought I would make a few bags to go on my stall. But then I realised the shoulder bags are too big. So now I have two stalls at the craft fair: Polly Polkadot jewellery and Polly Polkadot Textiles!
Did I buy the cloth labels for the bags? No I decided not to make more than a few bags, and then immediately set about making hundreds!
Poor light sewing at night? I don't start sewing until the children go to bed (7pm), so I just have to cope with the lighting!
The Pfaff machine? I could probably dedicate a whole blog to my Pfaff machine. My parents bought it when I started my GCSE Textiles at 14 (yep, I am qualified to make a bag!), and when I left home, they gave the machine to me.
Last night saw me with the instruction manual as I could not remember how to make the needle sit on the left hand side of the foot - no doubt tonight I will have to read it again to put it back.
Not too long? Well certainly an earlier post than usual for me (OH home sick, so he can look after the youngest whilst I sit at the computer).
