Celbridge Market

I'm all ready for the food and craft market in Castletown House in Celbridge tomorrow Sunday 17th July,but it looks like the weather is against us,rain,rain and more rain is forecast.This is my first time to attend this market and was really looking forward to it so here's hoping! As the song goes "my bags are packed and I'm readt to go".
I have changed direction in my crafts and am now making some lovely Flannel Baby Blankets (if I may say so myself),hope I get a good reaction for them at the market,that's if anyone shows up!!!!!

I saw this Tutorials and thought you might like to give it a try. Great for a night out or even to the beach. Love your comments.

Note: This type of design works best with chiffon, jersey, or material that drapes well.

And also you need to know a little about sewing.

1. The length and width depend on you. Fold it in half and find the center.

2. The neckline measurements I gave are a good basic guideline but there are so many different variations you can try. Usually the front has a style variation but the back should be just an inch deep, if you want it to sit behind your neck.

3. This one is more similar to the picture.
4. If you want your arms to have more stability this design is more appropriate.
5. This is another variation that a friend of mine saw in BCBG.

Busy Sewing

All this week I have so busy sewing not only for my alteration business but making some new crafts.
Yes! my first craft fair in quite a long time is happening this coming Sunday 3rd July in Dublin,so wish me luck.
I have made some new Satchel Bags and lovely Baby flannel blankets, a first for me,  and I'm really pleased how they look and are so soft, I'll post some photos of them next time. I must say I'm really looking forward to the fair,I love meeting new people and having a "chat".
Bye for now
