What i got myself into this time!!!








Hey Gang, thanks for dropping by. I'm just here to share with you all what I've been making this past weekend. I saw these at a local craft show and the girl didn't have the size i needed for my granddaughter. I even asked if i could order one as she told me she was from North Bay...i couldn't believe what she told me...get this. It's a local craft show in Ontario Canada, and she gets ladies from USA to make them for her and she sells them..so my way of thinking is she is purchasing them and reselling at a craft show...What nerve. She was totally cheating the ladies who have knitting tables and everyone else...as she was the busiest table there. I'm not complaining because she did so well, i hope that for everyone but to buy and resell.....not cool...

Well enough grumbling, hope you like as they are not perfect but i hope one of them fits my sweet Avery. I had to guess at sizing as she lives 4 hours away...My hubby says the Elmo should have round ball eyes but i did them different...oh well I'll know for next time. Pattern was purchased here: http://www.etsy.com/shop/Simply2Irresistible?page=2 at a fabulous price of 2.99 each and i couldn't just purchase one i got the 5 for 10.00....i never can just stop at one:0) Elmo was made using her hat pattern and i just winged the eyes and nose...


Thanks for dropping by and see you this Friday for another DT day....take care.

These are so cute!!! You are very talented. I can't believe someone would resell someone else's product either. I'm Avery will love all of them. Very Sweet! Cathie

You did a great job. That is not fair doing that at a craft show. People assume it is your own work at a craft show. I was in one in Toronto 2 weeks ago and another this week.

Your hats are so cute. Your grandaughter will look adorable in these.
As for the craft fair lady....that just not right. She buys someone elses hand made items and then sells them. Thats just wrong.
