Project One Hundred and One: Craft Market Apron

November 21, 2011

With only 5 days to go until I have my stall at the Made-It market in Cambridge, I am busily completing all the last minute preparations. Now all the stock has been made, I keep finding other excuses to keep sewing! Oh dear. This being my first time at a craft fair, I don’t really know what to expect, but I figured I needed somewhere safe and handy to keep my money, and especially change for customers. So tonight I  grabbed some fabrics from my (still large, why?!) fabric stash and got to work.

My money apron has two separate front pockets as well as a large zippered pocket. The photos were taken with a lot of coins in those pockets, and yet it was still not bulked out, so that is good.

I better get back to preparations. I’m really looking forward to the Made-It market, but am also at the stage where I am looking forward to it being over so I can get back to normality. The house is a tip, laundry is exploding all over the place, the ever-suffering Mr. B and boy are constantly covered in little threads and fabric scraps, and have to step over the obstacle course that is the ironing board, iron, piles of fabric, baubles, rotary cutters, scissors, tape, and other paraphernalia that has made its home on our sitting room floor for the last few weeks (not to mention having to put up with the continual clattering noise of the sewing machine). I shall be taking them out for a celebratory meal on Saturday night, to say a big thank you to them for all their support and patience.
