Market goodies

Yesterday saw the first 'SewSofie' market / fete stall. All in all I think it was a very positive day. There were lots of positive comments and requests for my contact details. To say I was happy is an understatement. Its great to have hard work appreciated even if it didn't translate to too many purchases. I was, after all, at a school fete. Personally, when I've gone to fetes as a visitor, Ive never really taken much money (enough for rides and a snag etc). I did let alot of people know about this here blog as well as another 'market night / fundraiser' Miss G's kinder is putting on in November.

So what can be made in one and a half weeks? Well have a look below. I should mention that mum was by my side and helped enormously with getting all the cut pieces of fabric together as well as entertaining the kids when I was sewing. My mum is a champion!!

Some lovely little A line dresses...
Polka dot dresses size4 and green and orange dress size 5. All $30 each.

Some reversible pinafores (that grow as your girl does)...
Owls motif, size 1 ($35)
Bird & denim Size 1 ($35)

Cherry & denim size 2 ($35)

Some spinning skirts...
Little ladies size 2, owl motif size 3 & flowers & dots size 4, all $25

and some letter cushions.
Large letter cushions ($35)

Small love heart cushions with hand embroidery, for hanging over door handles or wherever else takes your fancy ($10) (also seen here).

I'd also made a rocket ship cushion and got a few comments on it.

So now I have some stock and a market in 5 weeks. Im hoping to meet a new bunch of lovely local people (as I did yesterday) and maybe sell a thing or two. Hope you are all well and Im planning on catching up on ALOT of blog reading in the next few days.


PS. Sorry about the font weirdness. Blogger isnt liking me much today!


  1. Do you have a little "sweat shop" at your house? I can't believe how many things you managed to make in just one and a half weeks (even with the help of mum). Good for you to get your name out there.

  2. Well, good for you! I'm impressed:)

  3. Good work love! Still don't know how you do it??!! Are you still thinking of an Etsy store or maybe madeit? I reckon you should..... :)

  4. Wow, you made so much in such a short space of time and it is all beautiful. Congrats on the first market!

  5. Ooh, the dresses and the pinafores are to die for!! If only I had a little girl! If you have the time to make one, I'd like to buy a large letter cushion (N) for my little man...

    Gee, you've done well to get all that done - did someone give you more than 24 hours in your day?? Congratulations on some excellent work, Sof!

  6. Congratulations. Your things look lovely and I'm glad you've feeling positive about how it went. Onwards and upwards.
