Still getting ready for the We Make London fair on Sunday here. I think I've realised it's time to call a halt to making new things now, and to concentrate on finishing off all the half-made things! So last night I got the sewing machine out for the last time to make my craft fair apron, so as to create the illusion of being a bona-fide fully-fledged crafting stall holder.
I used a natural coloured linen fabric, lined in calico (repurposed from an Anglo-Saxon costume I once made, one of my many forays into costume-making - but that's a whole other blog post!) and using more of the Summer in the City cotton prints I love so much. My favourite is still the bird print - I have only one tiny fragment of this left now. It seems to have been really popular too, as I've had so many enquiries in my etsy shop as to whether I have any available to sell on the basis of a bag made from it in my shop - and I don't even sell fabric!
I'm especially pleased with my little sewing scissor holding clip - folding scissors, naturally, to avoid any terrible mishaps! I might do a tutorial for the apron once the fair is over, if anyone's interested. In the meantime though, I need to start filling those pockets with things I need for the fair.
