I am going to be a filler here and there, I have a 8 ft spot this Saturday! YAHOOO!! A little tricky though for bags on a 8 ft counter, but I am sure I can make they display look pretty.

Fun At the Pictou Market!

My first Market was lots of fun! It was such great trip and and fun experience. Even though I did not sell enough to cover admission fee and hotel, meals and travel. I thoroughly enjoyed my experience as a vendor at the Pictou Weekend Market this past weekend. I had lots and lots of interested people and that is all I hoped for. My hope for this past weekend was to get my products seen and hear comments from others hoping that my products are sellable. I brought my hubby along and he said that lots of people were very impressed and that my work was beautiful (Blushing). With the economy being what it is and being in a small community, I did not get the sales I had hoped for but I did make alot of contacts with people and handed out some business cards. So with that I made sure I wrote down lots of notes from comments people made and I will plug away and continue to do what I love! Creating and Designing wonderful handbags and accessories and to continue to get into markets and just having lots of fun meeting new people and friends! I am so glad I got to meet the wonderful people and Vendors of the Pictou Market! What a friendly Maritime place to visit!

Have a super week everyone!

Spring Is Here! Finally

Wow, this week has been a mix of cold and milder weather, the post few days have been mild but rainy. This weekend they are announcing warm above seasonal temps! Finally, Spring has Sprung! There are a few signs of spring here and there...crocus, tulips etc.. But where I find spring, is in my sewing totes are being created with lovely flower patterns and soft colors. I have been sewing every free moment to get stock ready for a market that I will be attending this summer..I am going on the road to Pictou, Nova Scotia. They have a wonderful market that they hold all summer. I will be a vendor for two weekends No No's Sew Hip Creations will be on the road: July 4,5 and August 8,9. I am very excited it will be my first time selling my creations in person!

Fabric Flower Tutorial

Here is the following easy tutorial on how to make these great flowers that you can use on any of your creations such as Handbags, Totes, Wallets etc. And even on your scrapbook pages and cards! So dig into your scrap bin and have fun!

Here are the supplies you need:

Scrap pieces of Fabric
Needle and Thread

Step 1: Cut your fabric into 5 - 2" x 2" squares.

Step 2: Fold each square into triangle pieces and iron.
Step 3: Thread your needle with enough thread to go through all your pieces. Sewing with a very loose stitch weave your needle through the two raw edges.
Pull the thread tight creating a petal and continuing onto the next 4 petals doing the same.
Step 4: When you have finished all 5 petals, sew the two end petals together creating the flower.
Step 5: Flip the flower over and sew on your button making sure to catch any loose fabric and making sure to catch a piece of each petal from underneath making sure of a even center of the button.
And whaa laa! There you have it..a cute little fabric flower to use on your layouts, cards or on mini albums. You can create these flowers any size from adjusting the squares you cut out from the fabric..just as long as you keep the measurements square you can use 1" x 1", 2" x 2", 4" x 4" etc....
Here is a sample of one I used on a tote that I created.

Sad and Happy Days!

A Sad day indeed...on Thursday my good old Saturn SL Kicked the bucket! It is was a mixed emotion day for sure..can we afford to get a new car?? Humm....well I think we have to anyway right? So off to the dealers we go in search of a new car (well not brand new..but newer than what we had) The salesman comes right over and we say we need to get a car and we describe what our needs are..he says well guys there are two 2008 Pontiac G6 that arrived here a few hours ago and they are priced to go!!! HUH?? The ticket price $12,450.00...????? What is the dealio? These cars are usually priced for approximately $14,000.00 and UP! So we go for a test drive and I am automatically in love..I am feeling the power of a V6..wowzers and smooth..
It is Midnight Blue and soooooo roomy..
