And I actually remembered to take pictures 🙂
Oh, I was suppose to blog about the stuff I made to wear there, right? Well you already saw the Apple Jack hat. Here’s the Apple Bloom & Big Mac
And I used fabric paint to put apples on shirts for my brother and me
And I also put balloons on a pink shirt so Yuji could be Pinkie Pie on a different day.
And for the third day Yuji wore this Gloomy Bear outfit, which everyone loved
It’s got a crocheted hat, fabric paint on the hat and shirt for blood, and felt claws sewn on some old pink mittens. I ended up not having time to use fabric paint to make blood on the mittens/claws, so I used permanent marker. Yuji kept smelling them… oops. But I guess it was just the boost she needed to help me with selling at the Swapmeet. I was nervous about taking her to that, but there was no time to take her home first. I didn’t have to be nervous though, as she is a natural salesman 🙂 She sang about the toys being awesome and made by her mom, danced, bought lots of attention to my stuff, talked to everyone, and whenever someone said they couldn’t or didn’t want to buy something right now, she gave them a business card and told them to buy something later 🙂
I was unsure if I was going to sign up for that fair on November 30th & December 1st, so I told myself that if I made the fee for that ($50) at Ramencon, I would sign up. And I was thinking that was a big if. But I made $105! So that pays for not only the craft fair, it also covers my Ramencon ticket and the gas I used going to Ramencon ^____^ So basically I had my fun weekend completely paid for.
Here’s all the pics!

Next weekend is the annual craft fair in my neighborhood, and while – as I said – there’s a lot of craft fairs in the area around this time, this is the one that is actually in my neighborhood, and where I know some of the crafters. So that should be fun 🙂
Anyway, between that craft fair in 9 weeks and my etsy shop still doing pretty darn good, I’ve got a lot of stuff to make! So off I go…
