Surprisingly it's been cold enough to wear the long grey scarf several days in a row, but I like the "cravat" better too.  Speaking of cravats, my mother-in-law gave my husband a beautiful one for Christmas--grey silk with a red pattern silk-screened on, by a local craftster--but he doesn't see himself wearing it.  I, on the other hand, have been eyeing it.

Very nice. I like what a scarf can do for an outfit. Once I figured out French seams, I was pretty happy with the result, too! So nice and clean, isn't it?

Yes, much nicer than zigzagging or even pinking.

Thanks for the feedback!

Awesome!  This appeals to me on a lot of levels.  I've always loved the colour dots on selvages and the "designer labels".  Recently I stopped throwing away all the scraps created on my rotary mat because they have such a nice texture--I've been thinking I could reuse them somehow, maybe as stuffing... Now that I've seen your chicken, I think there are some selvage pincushions in my future!  Great job and thanks for the inspiration.
3  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / yoga mat bag for Mother's Day on: May 04, 2009 08:53:13 PM
I was thrilled to hear my mom had taken up yoga and was loving it, so I made her this bag to encourage her to keep going to class.  She makes glass beads and has given me lots of bracelets lately, so I put some of her own beads at the end of the bag ties.
It has two large pockets on the outside (for towel and whatnot) and a loop for keys.
I was inspired by this free Amy Butler "Nigella" bag http://www.amybutlerdesign.com/pdfs/NigellaYogaBag.pdf but used a different construction method than she does.

Now I just have to get it to the post office!

I love the button flowers--so cute not not kitchy!

Thanks for the feedback!  The first one is my favourite too--one of those times I wish I'd bought more of a fabric.

Thanks for the comments and the help with the photos!  It's been a long time since I've posted and things look a bit different...

My first post in a long time!
I'm working in an office now and finding that sometimes I need something to drape around the neckline to make lower cut tops more work-appropriate (and more stylish).

This is the first time I've used French seams and I really like the result.

Love to hear your thoughts!

I made my husband get off the couch to see this--even he admitted that it's very cool!

Thanks both fellow Saskatooners for your replies.  I'm disappointed there aren't more venues...but then again, I don't know if crafting is often a real moneymaker anyway. 

For the record, I did find this link from the Government of Saskatchewan on "Starting a Craft Business."  It says that I can order a listing of craft fairs from Tourism Saskatchewan for $10.  It sounds like it's not worth it, though?

Just finished an apron for my aunt's birthday, and am thinking I'll just stick to the gifting for now.  I'm too busy to organize too!
Need some other way to fund my fabric addiction...
10  CANADA / Saskatchewan / Saskatoon craft fairs on: January 02, 2007 07:26:47 PM
Hi all,
In the aftermath of Christmas sewing and spending, I'm beginning to think about trying my hand at sewing for craft fairs.  I make handbags, aprons, lingerie bags, clothes...anything I think my family and friends would like.  With wedding season coming up, I'm thinking that anything wedding-themed would be good too. 

Does anyone have any comments about the Saskatoon craft fair scene, or feedback about selling these kinds of items?  Where do people sell besides the Fringe and the Saturday market?  I'm still relatively new to the province, so any suggestions about the craft fair scene here would be much appreciated!
