and made both of them look great.
A few weeks ago two of my friends came over and told me about a vest pattern that they had seen on a woman. The vest had a long "V shape collar type, hood type thing" going down the back. One of my friends even drew a picture of it. I had some extra felt that I
didn't have plans for so I decided to try making a vest with this v shape collar hood type thing on it. Why not? So I made 3 of them.
The body of the vests was made of very soft merino wool that was multicolored in plums, pinks and blacks. The collars were made of whatever I had on hand that looked okay with the felt. Rachael made them look great.
She also modeled a couple of the purses that I had been playing with. They were the ones that had the silk metallic fabric in them. I used Heather's idea for purse handles, and felted over cotton cording. It made a great, secure handle.
Now, I have no idea what to charge people for my goods as a vendor at the fair. We are in a recession and I know that folks don't have as much money on hand as they did. Any ideas out there?
