It's Over!!

The Holly Fair is over (thank goodness)! The Holly Fair is a craft fair we went to last year over in Roosevelt and it is a pretty big venue. They had 3 different locations that were packed full of people and stuff. We did really well and we can't thank the Uintah Basin enough! They gave us so many great compliments and since the week leading up to the Holly Fair we called it the "darn Holly Fair" it makes it a little more worth all the work to get there and be prepared for it. We took pictures of the booth but they are in my mom's camera, I'll see if I can talk her through getting them posted.

Now that the Holly Fair is over I had to move onto those projects I should have said no to. All you crafters might get those projects I'm talking about. Someone finds out that you sew and they immediately have a job for you. Well JayLee's preschool asked me to do a Christmas Tree skirt. I hadn't ever done one but I said I would do it for her so here goes..... What do you think? If it were mine I would have had my quilter friend (mom) quilt on it for me but we were trying to keep the cost down and this will be fine for what it will be used for. If you are interested I could write up a tutorial for it I whipped it in a couple of hours.
One more little project. Except I had to have this done so my mom could take it home with her. I dreaded doing it but it actually turned out pretty cute. Even Trent said so, but we were glad to get Denver Broncos junk out of our house! (ha ha Go Colts!!) My sister Melissa and I saw one of these car seat canopies in Old Navy. Some cute little mom had one and so we tormented her with lots of questions until we figured out how to make it. Hers was out of flannel so it was lined but I couldn't find Denver Broncos material in anything but fleece. I just bound it and put some ric rac around it. Cute huh?

There is another apron giveaway coming up within the next month stay tuned. Kortnie

So I'll torment you just a tiny bit: What shape did you cut the canopy out in? Oval? I think from there I could figure it out. Thanks!

It kind of is an oval. I actually pinned my fabric to the handle of my car seat and then just cut the corners off so it didn't drag. This one is actually bigger than the ones I have seen.

Haha, sounds exactly like how I'd do it. :) Thanks!

Love the little canopy for the car seat carrier. Wish they had those when my kiddos were younger. I just used a blanket. Lol.

Loved the tree skirt too.
