Bazaar items?

jackierookeOctober 19, 2008

I'm trying to find ideas that are relatively fast to sew for bazaar items. Been eons since I've even been to one so no idea what is popular today. Any help?

shopping bags? (to use at the store instead of those plastic ones) - tote bags, wallet, checkbook cover, aprons w/matching potholder, placemats w/matching napkins, table runner, tree skirt....think of the kind of things someone would purchase for a Christmas gift, especially if done in seasonal fabric if purchasing for personal use.

We used to do a big craft show each year and found the items worth $5.00 to $10.00 sold really well. Lots of people came each ear to buy teacher's gifts and such. I made homemade gift tags and I could have sold double what I made. I made 25 of the cloth jewelry bags. If you have a serger these make up fast. Other items were glass cases, casserole carriers, any type of angel or snowman sold like crazy. I made snowmen napkin rings and they were a big hit. I boxed them up with eight in a box. I took 50 orders for them.. Doll clothes and blankets..There were 15 of us ladies and we made $10,000 in 2 days..

Just have fun..
