First Outing!!

I decided to make a Santa Workshop with the Fairy Door
I had in my stash.

I took it to the Craft Fayre today for its first outing and sold it!!
I didn't expect it to sell straight away and wasn't bothered
if it took a few Fayres to sell it.

I made the Elf and his Toadstool seat from Air Dry Clay.
I had great fun making him and it took me quite a time to
get him as I wanted him. The body was easy but 
I spent a couple of days to get his head right. Especially
his tiny, pointy ears!!

He has a friend, who was peeking out to see who opened the door!
There are two wooden Unicorns and some parcels, that
he is keeping his eye on!! Lol!!

It was quite funny, as I bought the Fairy Door from The Works
in Lowestoft. One of the ladies that works there, 
came to the Fayre and saw it on my stand and couldn't
believe what I had done with it.

I have used 90 pieces of fabric and 184 pins to make this bauble.
I have topped it with greenery, ribbon, small cones and berries. 
I also have a hole in my thumb!! Lol!! 
I now use a lolly stick to push the tiny pins in!
I have already sold 4 of them!

Just a couple more with different colour mix.

We are back to the Fayre tomorrow and hope it
stays dry for the day.

Thank you for your kind messages on my last post.

I hope to get around to all my lovely bloggers tomorrow
when I get home.

Big hugs,

It is so creative, no wonder you sold it. You know I make fairy doors, well I was going to stop doing them but after Prima Rosa sold 3 in 2 weeks I am making more. Love your material bauble. The pins do hurt a bit but I found the tartan fabric I used much softer and easier. Good luck today

Your Santa Workshop is fabulous Carol, I'm not surprised that you sold it so quickly - the little elf is adorable. Your baubles are stunning, they sound very time consuming to make but well worth the effort.

Wow! this is just fantastic wonder it sold so best get cracking with Santas elves and make some more! Also love the pins cones..I have done the same but with paper rather than fabric...yes it does hurt your fingers...good idea with the lolly stick. These are stunning in the fabrics you have chosen.

Goodness me what a wonderful project, I’m not surprised it sold straight away - it will have pride of place in someone’s home at Christmas. The ornaments are beautiful, people have no idea what goes into them when they see them on your stall, lovely fabric choices.
