Because my daughter is also participating, I thought I would give it a go too! Nothing to lose!

What the heck should I offer? Quilts, not so much! Small. Something small. I thought long and hard and hard and long.
Pot Holders. I spent a couple days making half a dozen or so sets. They are unique, great for people who are looking for something different and unique, right? We'll see about that!

I pieced together a few front panels for those who like that look.
Rainbow and pencils go hand in hand.
Lined, zipper tabs...the kitchen sink!
I found a couple pieces of my hand dyed fabrics that I thought would work well. Plus, offering options in the way of designs and colors can't be a bad thing!

You can buy zipper pouches everywhere, I know. Hopefully there are people who appreciate handmade, love to support local, and want something that isn't mass produced!
I made a few...a few more than a few...coin purses, card holders, zipper pouches. Whatever you want to call them or use them for! Multipurpose might be a good description for these or any zipper pouch! I'm thinking stocking stuffer...
These are about as basic as it gets! No lining! I decided I would use Shape Flex Fusible Interfacing to give stability and the illusion of a lining. Do you think that was okay to do?
I had a lot of smaller pieces of hand dyed fabrics that were perfect for this project. Shibori, Itajime, stamped, low water and even a couple Anna Marie Horner wovens!
Whether or not these sell is another question! But that's okay. If nothing else they make great gifts!
I was actually very happy to sit and make something different for a little while. A nice change as always, we all can appreciate that sometimes!
I'm very appreciative that I was asked to participate in this event! Along with my things, there will be soap, art prints, greeting cards, jewelry, ceramics and much more!
