    Default Spring Craft Fairs

    The high school has decided to do a second Craft Fair this year. It's in the Spring on April 6. I'm trying to decide if I should give it a try. Thing is I need to find Spring type of quilting/sewing project to do for it. Does anyone have any ideas of what are some Spring types of things to make for a show that time of year???

    Any fabric choice will be fine. Sometimes people are looking for birthday, Christmas, wedding presents, so it doesn't have to deal with one season of the year. Have fun. Pot holders always do well at craft fairs.

    Easter is April 21st, so you could do Easter themed items. Probably any of the projects you'd do for the winter craft fair would work by changing the fabrics toward spring/summer.

    Remember Spring is also a good time to start planning for Summer i.e. picnics and farmer's markets, so perhaps things like casserole cozies, quick and easy picnic blankets, and shopping totes.

    My gd ages 3,6, and 7 love picking up "treasures." We live a 5 minute walk from Lake Michigan and they love walking on the beach picking up pretty rocks, beach glass, interesting sticks, etc. They rarely have pockets in their clothes to haul stuff home. How many times have they said Grandma can you hold this for me?! I am going to make them each a bag a little smaller than a pillow case, with about a 2-3 inch strip of mesh at the bottom to drain out any sand or water, and the rest of the bag out of novelty fabric or something in their favorite color. This is on my to do list this spring. If you are located anywhere close to a beach this might be a seller.
    I am not a cross stitcher but I think you can buy plastic cross stitch grid by the sheet. Maybe you could cut in strips and just line the bottom of the bag with it. That is, if you can throw the bag in the dryer after making it without the plastic melting?

    You're very welcomed!
    Let's not forget that Father's Day is coming up in June. Here's a pattern for a tool roll up: http://christianhomekeeper.org/homemade-tool-roll-up/
    I made my DH a tool roll up for his motorcycle. I went to a discount fabric store and bought some black vinyl. Also bought black elastic to help hold each tool in. He loved it.
    Or one for Mom: https://www.joann.com/learn-how-to-s...tm_medium=cpc&[ADL]%20[Non-Brand]%20Dynamic%20Search%20Ads&gclid=Cj0KCQiAhKviBRCNAR IsAAGZ7CdjTTuGkGc9CstvDYLfY_V5nIcTccIboyoaueRVqVX6-W7ChwjtzTMaAuJjEALw_wcB

    Vonnie, the tool roll is cute. Scooter had sent me a storage case that she made. Inside was vinyl that you could see through and it had zippered sections (I use it for a lot of my sewing accessories). Anyway, between those two ideas I got another idea. Something similar but for storing the fishing accessories. Sections for various hook sizes, lures, weights etc. I'm thinking that might make a nice Father's Day present. You know with a fishing theme for the main fabric. We have a lot of people who fish around here. How much do you think you could sell something like that at a Craft Fair?

    I also really liked that gardening apron too. Have to make one for myself :-)
