Spring Events, New Logo & Bags of Fortune
I am proud to present to you my new banner and logo. I originally had a small banner made for my Etsy shop and it was much smaller and just had Becky's pillow shop written on it. Then I decided I liked it so much I wanted a new sign/banner to hand up at events so this is what it will look like when it arrives! I was a volunteer missionary in Togo, West Africa for over a year so I love the African theme items and especially the Safari animals! This pattern was taken from the fabric I used to make some beautiful place mats for Lion's Lair.
I have been busy sewing some new bags and aprons for spring. I am getting ready for the Earth Day Celebration in Shepherdstown on April 26, and possibly the Berryville Main Street Yard Sale on April 12. Also I was asked by someone on the " board" of the Purcellville Town Farmer's Market to be a vendor at this summer, which is exciting. Whoo-Hoo! I think he liked my wares, and even gave me ideas of what to concentrate on making . Apparently, you have to be approved by the board to participate! I met him at a vendor event I participated at recently in Charles Town, WV. My Aunt Shirley was visiting from North Carolina that weekend. She recycles sweaters and makes beautiful handbags from them, all different & very unique, so she went with me to the event and took her bags. They are called " Bags of Fortune". "Unfortunately" no pun intended- they don't come with great fortune, but with lots of love from Shirley Fortune. My Uncle Mac, her brother, jokes and says she has had lots of "mis-fortune" which is actually pretty true. Check out some pictures of the bags below. They are only $25 each. They are all lined with pockets inside and magnet closure (magnets are under lining) . There are a few that aren't made from sweaters, but I posted pictures of a few of the spring/summer bags. I kept them and am going to try and sell them for her, so if you are interested please e-mail me and I can give more details and send more pictures.
I have lots of new spring items on my Etsy store, and adding things daily . I am trying to get 100 items listed so check out my new items.
