So I have been working like a crazy person, trying to get everything ready for the Colonel Crawford Fall Festival. This is only my second year as a vendor at the festival but it is one of the biggest shows that I participate in. Which means that I have a lot of prep work. This year I decided to make my own table cover and I found this great pin on Pinterest from zaaberry.blogspot.com where she used two flat twin sheets to make a table cover.
The cover that I made is for a 4 foot table. First, I laid one of the sheets on the table, wrong side up, then pinned the sides where I wanted the corners of the table to be fitted with the cover.
I cut the excess fabric off of the corners and sewed up the corner. I did this for the other corner on the same side as the first.
You can leave the back open for easy access underneath the table where you may store merchandise, or if the back of the table will be visible, you can stitch the other sheet to the back. Stitch both corners as you did with the opposite two corners and voila!
I decided that I would also drape some fabric that I had on top of the table for extra design and color.
In preparation for the show this weekend, I edited, had printed and matted a bunch of art prints. I also created a message to go inside of each print.
I dressed up my mannequin with some of my Redbubble merchandise.
And did a quick inventory and pricing of my artwork.
This year I tried something different and made a few ornaments.
I’m looking forward to the show and if you are looking for something to do Saturday, come see me at the Colonel Crawford High School in North Robinson, Ohio on October 2rd between 8:00a.m. and 4:00p.m. Thanks for visiting the blog 🙂
