Put a Poppy On It!
It's Shameless Commerce Tuesday, but instead of promoting a new listing, I'm sharing the inspiration for a new product line for craft fairs where I'll be vending this Fall. This beautiful red chiffon poppy applique arrived in my mailbox today from Bucharest, Romania!
LoraDesign makes beautiful handmade appliques in a wide variety of colors. I just love these gorgeous chiffon red poppies.
At less than $1.00 a piece, I am looking forward to adding these to a new line of zip pouches. I have plenty of red, gray and navy chevron scraps -- and I think these will provide an extra bit of bling to grab the attention of craft fair holiday shoppers. At least for now, I'll be planning to market the bags at craft fairs, where my zip pouches have done reasonably well in the past.
It's a happy combination -- oven mitts for Etsy, scraps in craft fair projects. Minimal waste. Maximum use of fabric.
