Covered Composition Notebooks

The Holiday show, that I'm going to have a table at, is tomorrow.  Eeeek!

I've been stitching like crazy trying to get ready.  I have six quilts to bring.  I know, quilts never sell at shows.

Composition Notebooks

But my main goal has been to have a chance to show my stuff to others, and then put it out there in an etsy shop.  The shop keeps getting put off for other things.  When the call for vendors went out at the Home and School Holiday Brunch and Bazaar I jumped on it as a good deadline for myself.

Figuring I should bring along something that has a possibility of selling, I've made a bunch of fun crafty things to go along with the quilts.  I make as many as I feel like and what strikes me as fun for the day.

Composition Notebooks

This is a set of six covered composition notebooks.  Very fun to make.

The worst part is the anxiety that I'll be showing all these school moms my stuff - I'll see them again after tomorrow and what if they think it's all lame!  The teen-years-horror!

No way they will think they are lame! I love those covers- so, so cute and bright and fun. They are sure to be a hit. Here's some good luck and big sale wishes for you.

I don't think you need to worry about being lame. You are going be the prom queen of the sale! These are awesome!

Wow! Everything you make is AMAZING! I am so surprised to hear you say what I feel everytime I let someone see what I have made. I have to say, there is no chance that everyone won't love everything, even if it's not their "thing", they will, at the very least, recognize the talent and beauty in them. Relax and enjoy it!

Are you kidding me? You do amazing work!! Like UBee said, they will recognize the talent and beauty. I do 1 or 2 craft shows a year and I agree about the quilts- noone wants to pay what they're worth. I do the same thing, take a few items that I think they will enjoy and aren't too expensive. I'm sure they will love the notebook covers!! Good luck at the show and can't wait for you to open an Etsy shop!!:)

If they think that they're lame then they'd be totally wrong! These are awesome, and I fully expect you to sell every one of them!! :) And if they're really in the "know" they'd know just how much some of those bits of fabric are worth -- Out of print and all! Good luck!!

Julie said...

Beeeeauuuutiful! I love them a lot!

Can you please tell us how you did them?

amandajean said...

Hope your show went well! They certainly can be nerve wracking affairs. Your work is beautiful! Love your fabric choices!

Rene' said...

I am sure all your items were a big hit at the show Angela!!! I would have snatched up all those composition books myself!
