Busy Bees Sewing

witsand-xmas-marketIt has been quiet over here at Practical Pages this past month because we have been busy sewing and I put our homeschooling on the back burner.  We were given a last-minute spot at the fabulous Witsand Christmas Market to sell our handmade items this December.  Not having much time to prepare, we plunged in full-time!

My product line is called Birdie Bags and I am trying to generate enough stock to last the full month of Dec into the New Year.  I am sewing bags, mostly quilted drawstring bags and pencil and other zip bags.  These bags fold open to become a basket-tray, making it an ideal travel bag.  birdie-bags1

So, as this school year draws to a close and South Africans plan for their long-awaited summer December break, I trust you are finding your end of year flow and rhythm.

Much grace, Nadene

  2. WOW, these are so beautiful! What fun:) What an incredible life training moment. I actually felt emotional looking at all those beautiful things and thinking of the fun family moments you must have had in making them! My 3 boys have been requesting sewing lessons recently and having fun making little money pouches and a protective camera cover. Quite fun to watch them playing wildly outside climbing trees and getting full of mud, then next minute sitting quietly sewing away!
