Handmade Haven @ Mono

Sunday saw my second stall with Vegan by Nature at Handmade Haven and our first time at the one in Mono. We managed to end up with a pretty good variety of things we’d made.

For this stall Rachel came up with the idea of a book-theme as can be seen from her amazing peter pan and catcher in the rye cakes. I decided to make some more bookmarks with x-stitch quotes and x-stitch portraits. I swapped the Woody Allen portrait at the last market for an upcycled Joan of Arc journal. I whipped up another Woody for this market because it was a lot of fun to do. I also brought along a crochet blanket that my mum made. my corner by you.
The newest thing I tried was the linen bags with antique lace trims. I hadn’t used my sewing machine in a while and had a lot of linen lying around. I bought some old 70’s-style pillowcases from a secondhand shop near where I live, turned them inside out sewed them to the inside of the linen and sewed on the lace. They were really quick and easy to make but ended up looking really effective. I’m pretty chuffed with how they turned out.
