When I originally started selling handmade goods I focused on girls clothes and a bit of accessories- mainly hats and barrettes. I have come to change my focus a bit after doing a few of these markets to make and sell more gifts for children (and mom’s!). I have found it easier to whip up gifts such as banners, bags and home goods since I don’t have to make a large number of sizes and styles. You know how many dresses and skirts I made for the first market- a ton, and I ended up getting asked for all of the sizes I DIDN”T have- or for boys clothes, or baby stuff. Although I did pretty well that first year I learned that it is impossible to fit/size everyone- I am not a retail store- so I switched my focus last year to include for kids gift items- more unisex items…and it was great. I am planning on doing this again this year, but I couldn’t help but make SOME clothes- they are really what I love to sew!
I am focusing this week on leggings…who doesn’t like a pair of comfy leggings? My girls wear them pretty much every day and I have been bored by the options out there, so I chose to amp it up a bit and go trendy with my fabric choices. You can buy a basic pair of leggings anywhere- but where can you find a baby tribal print? So cute. I will have a range of sizes- from a few 12months up to 8 years, all sewn and professionally serged and in the most hip and soft knit fabrics. Prices will range from $12-18 depending on style and size. I have a feeling the girls are going to claim those grey/cream sweater ruffle leggings above…and I don’t blame them.
I am totally in love with these little fawn and feather leggings- so ridiculously cute. Here they are in a 6-12 month size. The baby sizes have a cuffed bottom, but larger sizes will not. They are all professionaly serged and finished on the inside, and even have small seams tags inside!
