Leeton Red Carpet Market Day

I am getting excited about this market, lots of great stall holders.
AND a giveaway as well - local participants only unfortunately.
It is getting close - I hope to see you there.  It means that I had better get organised.

Magnet Necklaces

Remember this pack from yesterday?  They are actually magnets!
Well look at them now?
They have been made up into the cutest little necklaces.  This is so easy to do, that it would be an ideal craft to organise for a child's party.
The magnets are already flat on the back, and sealed, so all you need to do, is glue a bail on the back of each magnet
Be patient, and wait for the glue to dry, and then  just thread a ball chain through
Did you happen to recognise the pictures on the front of all these magnets/pendants?
They are the symbols that you find on your "Apple" device, eg iPhone, iPad
I love how they turned out

Making a Start!

I have made a start on my handmade products for the upcoming Red Carpet Market in Leeton

I finished two little notepad holders .. yes that is all, however it is a start(!)

I especially love the colours of the blue and brown one.  Here is the inside, with a little pen already placed in the pocket
They are so quick and easy to make.  See original post here with link to instructions
I then made my sister Sue, a bag by recycling a pillowcase. 
There is no wastage in this bag, and it is quite strong as it is lined by doubling the fabric back inside.
The original post can be seen here
This is what I am working on now, can you guess what I am going to do with these?
A hint, it will be a great children's craft project.
Until tomorrow, when I have completed photos to show you

Fabulous weekend

I had a fabulous weekend away, visiting friends in Yass NSW.  The drive down was beautiful with the wattle trees giving a beautiful show of colour along the highway, and with the canola crops displaying fields of yellow.  A fabulous time of the year.

A lot of chatting, eating, laughing, crying, and a little bit of drinking was on the agenda for the weekend.
It is always nice to catch up with friends especially when they live away from you ...I know I came back home refreshed and ready to start a new week.

Not a lot on the craft side, however I hope to have some things to show you shortly.

Just a note about a couple of shows, markets that I will be participating in:-

Saturday, September 28th - Red Carpet Market Day - Leeton Visitors Centre - 9:00am - 2:00pm
Only handmade goodies for sale, this market will be featuring regional crafts and also the Junee     Licorice Factory will be visiting (yummy).  Is it too early to have some of my Christmas items for sale?

I will have my buttons, patterns and craft supplies for sale as well as some handmade items
