March Booth...Baskets, Bunnies, Bags and Libby LuLa
For the last few years, March has been 'Beginning Booth' month. The first Saturday of March was this weekend, and what a beautiful day it was. A light jacket for the early morning setting up was all I needed for the rest of the day...except for a wide brimmed hat...it was warm and sunny.
With Easter falling on the last Sunday of March, it was the perfect time to feature the Tulip quilts, crocheted baskets and bunnies. The shoppers weren't thinking Easter yet, so they all got to come home with me. I was not too disappointed. I so enjoyed making them and am happy to keep them for awhile longer. Besides I may need those baskets for egg hunting.
Although I didn't blog about making bags during the month of February, you can see that I did a bunch of bag sewing and weaving. In total, 20 Totes and 10 Bags/Purses made up the group I call 'PieceMaker' Totes and Bags. The Totes are designed for carrying Books, Projects, Laptops and Crafting Projects with inside pockets, fully lined and padded, and straps that allow for shoulder or hand carrying. The larger 'Piecemaker' Bags are designed with the Quilter in mind with the outside pocket made for carrying Quilt Rulers and the inside pockets for tools and sewing notions. The bags are perfect for carrying to a Quilt Retreat with room for fabric, patterns and books.
The only thing that occupied my pink chair was my Big Bag. I stayed busy all day demonstrating the Art of Twinning. It drew lots of interest and my Libby LuLa Loom was all the envy.
It was a Fun First Saturday at The Chicken Farm Art Center!
