1  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / sakura kanzashi bag on: June 27, 2007 01:41:48 PM
excuse the crap pics, I'm working on getting a new cam!  I made some sakura kanzashi, used a pink bead for the center along with silver jewelry pins as the stamens or whatever they are called!  I made the bag, lined it with pink polkadot material, and added a lighter pink polkadot belt ribbon.  My husband painted the tree branch on, as me and fabric paint are not on speaking terms!  It has a cell phone and wallet pocket on the inside.  I am in my annoying colors phase right now, according to dear husband, where I like to use several different shades of the same color.  Hope you like!

2  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / sewing collars on: June 23, 2007 10:18:23 PM
I am on the verge of wearing v-necks for the rest of my life!!!  I have been making a few dresses for work and I am totally miffed at the collars.  I can't seem to make the collars look nice and stay round.  Can anyone tell me a fairly simple way to make a round collar?

This is my first picture post on craftster!  After going through tons of graph paper to come up with a design I liked (I love graph paper!), I finally came up with one I liked!

This is a pic of the top flaps tied, or you can leave them down like this

I am so happy to finally come up with a simple pattern I liked!
4  CRAFTY BUSINESS ADVICE / Tips for Participating in Craft Fairs / Need advice on a specific fair on: March 16, 2007 09:23:51 AM
This is not really a craft fair, more of a flea market/swap meet.  They have spaces for antique's, crafts, farmer's market, and flea market.  It appears that it will be huge judging by its location.    They have the grounds divided up so all the handmade items will be in one place, all the antique's in another, etc.  I spoke with the promotor's and their definition of getting a hand made space is at least 51% of your items would be something you would take to a juried craft show.  The only way of enforcing it is complaints will be looked into and the offender's will be moved to the proper category space permitting or will not be able to sell the next day.

I try to frequent shows 2 weekends a month.  I took last year off because I had recently moved from out of state and it took me awhile to find the shows out here.  I have a few free weekends this summer and this could be a what I'm looking for.  I know they are advertising, though not to heavy yet.  They are putting an emphasis on the farmers market and crafts is what advertising I have seen.  What do you guys think?


here's a link to the website and the fair lay out.

5  CRAFTY BUSINESS ADVICE / Selling Crafts on Etsy.com / Do you have a best selling price point? on: March 06, 2007 01:37:33 PM
After lurking for ever, I've finally decided to join and post  Grin  I've been thinking of opening an Etsy shop for awhile, and finally am ready to take the plunge!  My question: Does anybody notice that certain priced items sell better than others? Say you have items ranging from $5-25, do the $5-15 sell more than the $15-25?  Do you prefer to list items in a certain price range because it is difficult to find customers willing to pay higher prices?
I make items in  variety of price ranges and am wondering if I should focus more on the lower cost/less time consuming items, or the higher cost/more work for me items.
