market day and new makes

well market day was a big ball of fun and success!! i enjoyed sitting back in the cool surrounds out at petrie markets with my market buddy Renata and selling my hand made pretties. you can read a bit more about it over on my other blog agapanthas and goldsworthy.
and after the market day was over i promised myself a mini break from crafting and stitching...that lasted all of 2 HOURS as i put together another lavender dress and this....
YES it is my very first attempt at a gorgeous and useful heat wheat bag! i am finally using some of the corduroy i bought ages ago and made this segmented bag of therapy.
you simply fold it to fit in your microwave and heat it for approximately 2 and half minutes. i will be making many of these to sell at my next market stall on the 23rd of this month. i wont be adding these to my online stores as the cost to ship them would be too hefty, so the only way to get your hands on one is to come and visit me in person:) i am still not sure on a price yet but i am thinking between $20 $25, what do you think? is that a reasonable price? too much or too little? you know i just love your advice!!
plus i am finally back onto this little beauty...
i started it so very long ago that i cant even find the post about it...
i have progressed...
i have almost even finished it... there is one part that i absolutely HATE but i would have to unpick so much that my heart would break... i will show you one day and you might be able to help me overcome the problem.
anyhow, thanks for your support leading up to my first market day. we will be out again later this month and would just love to see you there. come and support local hand made, you wont be disappointed.
have a great Wednesday.


  1. You are one crafty chick!
    Our Local Lavender Farm sells the segmented bags with Lavender and wheat for $15,And they are pretty Up market,Bit of food for thought for you.
    Also A handy hint,My friend is a CFA fire safety officer and community FIRE educator and he was horrified to see me heat a weat bag bear in our microwave on it's own,Apparently wheat dries out over continually heating and can Set alight!!
    To solve this you should put a mug with alittle water in with it!!!
    Who would've thought!????

  2. I love the look of that wheat bag. I see them at craft fairs near here and they always sell really well.

  3. Hi Rosey,
    I'm glad to read all went well at the market.
    Well done on the Wheat/Lavander bags. Its a bit hard to price because I don't know the size. I recently saw some at local market. They ranged in size and price.
    Happy creating,

  4. Glad to hear your first market day was a good one. The wheat bags are great. There's one lady here who makes and sells them at all the bazaars -- your price is similar to what she charges. Good luck with the next one. Best wishes, Tammy

  5. Love the wheat bag! So glad that your market day was a success too. suzie xxx
