1  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Discussion and Questions / Divider in a gussetted bag?? on: June 13, 2007 12:36:47 PM
My friend has requested a big bag to carry all her stuff in... laptop, appointment book, etc., etc. She likes the style I make of a really wide gusset; 5 to 6 inches. She would like a divider in the bag to separate where she puts her laptop, book, and then just regular purse stuff. She asked for 2 dividers.

My questions are, is this possible and how would I go about it? Should I maybe do a Jordy style bag and just make the squares really wide? I would prefer to do the gusset. I have been thinking about this for a while and just cant seem to wrap my brain around how to do it.

Help... lol
2  CRAFTY BUSINESS ADVICE / Tips for Participating in Craft Fairs / Re: Pictures of craft fair setup - Please post! on: March 06, 2007 08:54:03 PM
I finally had my first big show this past saturday (3/3/07).

My dad found three sets of tall, thin, bi-fold doors and we put them to good use. He anchored them on a 3'x3' piece of thin plywoodmaking one set stationary in the center with a set flanking each side. The end door was not secured so it could be pushed out or pulled in depending on the size of bag that would be hanging. We then got all of the metal hangers from our workshed that hold up our non-exsistant tools on a pegboard and just drilled holes to put them in.

It worked really well and is easy to take apart and transport.

I also had a small table for stationary, mailing list sign up and my business card. On an old record player table I had a wash tub with hats and a small tv stand with zippered pouches. My main colors were green & orange and it seems to bring people in despite me being stuck behind a pillar. It was an akward space. Instead of 8'x8' like most spaces were, mine was closer to 7'x14'. But we made it work.

I am preparing for my first major fair being put on by the Nashville Craft Mafia on March 3rd. It's called the Revolution of Craft and I am so friggin excited! My daughter started going to Mommy's Day Out at the local church just so I can sew. I also sew while she naps and after she goes to bed at night.

I am not quite half way to where I want to be yet as far as inventory, but I am getting there. I decided to sew all the bags of one style now, then when I am done, sew my next style and so on. Here is my first installment... totes!

Thanks Everyone! What a nice thing to wake up to.

I got the fabric at Joann's. They had just gotten it in 3 days ago. But, I have seen it online on other people's projects in the past couple of months. It is an Alexander Henry print called "inked"  It is a little pricey, but once I saw it I just HAD to have it.

Thanks again everyone!
