We are at the beginning of the holiday crafting season. I am so excited to share some of the new items I've added to The Molly Patch catalog! I just found out that I am confirmed for the Vienna Woman's Club Holiday Bazaar in November. I am still waiting on information for two additional shows, also in Northern Virginia. November seems a ways off still, but it's just a little over two months away. That will sneak up on us in no time!

I love wearing an apron. Not only does it protect my clothes from the inevitable spills in life, but they can be a stylish accessory. At the Holiday Bazaar this coming Saturday, I'll have several to choose from.For those who want an apron to wear at times other than Christmas, I have this lovely green and blue apron. I'll also have a couple of pink apple aprons, which aren't finished as of today.
This cute apron matches my pillowcases, and there will also be a coordinating table runner. If this makes you happy, then come early! I would hate for someone to buy what you have your heart set on.
I think this one is my favorite. It reminds me of a time when you took off the apron you had been wearing all day and put on a fresh one for your husbands arrival.
Lastly, here we have my mom modeling her apron. The ruffle on the bottom and the yolk top create a flattering look that will last for years to come.

I recently became an authorized seller of the Buttercup Bag (pattern by Rae Hoekstra). These delightful little bags add a punch of style and personality. Flower carries one to church. To give you an idea on space, she can fit her scriptures and her notebook in it.I think this one might be my favorite. I love the swirling lines and the polka dots surrounding the paisley motifs.
Then I look at this one, and I think it might be my favorite. Love the graphic flowers!
Inside there is a small pocket, perfect for keys or your cell phone, and it's closed with a magnetic closure.
Come November 13 to the Vienna Community Center and see which one is your favorite!

I am busily sewing for the November 13 Vienna Woman's Club Holiday Bazaar. I have a lot of fun things I'll be selling at my booth. I hope you'll come! One of my offerings will be Christmas pillow cases. Sold in sets of two, these pillowcases are guaranteed to bring on visions of sugarplums.I'm using a new technique for these. The main difference from my previous pillowcases is the cute accent strip below the band. It just makes them that much more special.
The seams, zey are French.
While most of the fabrics feature bright colors that invoke a "marshmallow world" feeling, I also have some more traditional offerings.
Here are 15 finished sets (please pay no attention to the mess). All told there will be nearly 25 sets of pillowcases to choose from. Who are you buying for? Yourself? A friend? Anyone of any age would love these this Christmas time!
