Beanies for my 1st craft market

I made my first crochet beanie for Sasha, when I showed it to my friends they really liked it.YAY!  And my friend Claire was keep telling me that I must start selling them. At that time I just stop running mother and child workshop, so didn’t really feel like doing much.

 Then last April Lisa asked me if I would share craft market stole with her (she was doing t-shirts). I didn’t think to long, so there I was making my first stoke for the craft market.

Here is photos of my first beanies, I think I made about 11 of them and few pair of slippers. Didn’t have much time before market, so it was a bit of a rush. Don’t like presure. But I did it! I enjoyed doing it!

Oakhurst food and craft market was on Claire farm. It was beautiful and cold day which was great for my goodies(: Peter looked after boys, while I was selling my stuff and chatting (love chatting((:) It was long day for us, but loads of fun. I sold 90% of my beanies and one 1 pair of slippers, plus I got 5 order.  Its so nice to do what I love and also make a bit of money!!! Sooo grateful. Thank you. X

P.S. Thank you to my lovely models – friends: Yuliya, Rebecca, Sam, Joily&Marcel, Sasha and Max.
