    I am hoping you could help me with some ideas for a little boutique our guild will be having at a local festival. Some items we already have are coasters, bibs, placemats, potato bags, small purses, cosmetic bags, potholders, totes, book covers, trivets, pin cushions, pins and ornaments. I am looking to do something a little different as my contribution. Any help you can offer will be great. Thanks

    Holiday wall hangings....I LOVE them and had no idea how easy they could be until I started learning about quilting. I won't even tell you how much I have spent on little home decor items for Christmas! Good Luck!

    The boutique at our quilt show sold many, many back issues of magazines.

    I made these for our guild table this last meeting and they sold fast. took about 10 minutes or less to make. One bath towel will make three. I made the spa pattern.

    Also I made two of these and they sold as soon as they were set on the table. I plan on making more. I got the link from this board for the free pattern but now they aren't free.

    I recently made coffee sleeves. Huh - what? Those little cardboard things you slip over the cup so it isn't too hot to hold. They sell well. Did you know that the average coffee-holic throws away 4.5 pounds of them each year? Mine are reversible for extra fun. Get a coffee sleeve at your local spot. Open it up and make a pattern. I used fusible fleece on the inside to make things move along quickly. Lots of info on the web ...

    I made and sold a bundle of yo-yo trees. I didn't decorate as this suggests. Just added a star on the top. Easy cute and fast.
