I’m heading out to Quilt Market today…I’m nervous but happily excited at the same time. Since I won’t have any booth photos until later in the week I thought I’d share a little more pre-market sewing. All of these projects will work as booth props but will also be used a lot after market!
Kait came to the rescue and had this ready in no time!
She was even able to use some of the new bag hardware Annie sells which I love.
I love the zipper pocket on the inside of the bag. This is such a great pattern–it’s not too big and not too small…a couple of years ago I even used my Carry On! bag to take my sewing machine as my carry on to Wisconsin!
Kait was also able to stitch up a Catch all Caddy. We will use this in the booth to keep brochures and our Bright Sun buttons contained…
There are great pockets inside, too.
One end has a slip pocket,
and the other end has a handy zipper pocket. After market I’ll make good use of this in my sewing room!
Every booth needs a pillow…so I stitched up a Dresden and applique’d it to some wonderful Moda Mochi Linen. I love how it turned out (I used 5 ½″ Dresden blades on a 15 ½″ background).
Finally…we thought a cute doll would be a lot of fun…wearing a Bright Sun dress, of course, This adorable doll was made by a friend of ours who has a wonderful Etsy shop, Sew Darling.
Thanks so much for all of the wonderful comments and terrific support. I won’t be able to reply to emails until next week, but I’ll definitely be reading comments.
I’ll try to get a post up here this weekend, but you can for sure find my market photos beginning tomorrow on my Instagram @AQuiltingLife.
Thanks so much for stopping by!
