As most of you know I sew. I was thinking of doing a craft fair but I need ideas on what to make and sell. I currently have aprons, coasters, headbands, handbags, quilts, eyeglass cases, dolls, quilted Christmas wall hangings. I have Halloween fabric but idk what to do with it. Maybe coasters and candy bags. Not sure though. I have no idea what to make and sell so for those of you who sew and have done successful craft fairs, what should I be making?

Doll clothes...  Preferably a captains haori.  Two of them.  Before I throw my sewing machine across the room.

Candy bags would be neat for the halloween fabric.  What about receiving blankets, burp cloths and cloth diapers?  Seems to be the latest rage. 

Ignore my other post.  I can't sew my way out of a paper bag...

I don't sew but I have been to a few craft fairs as a seller. When walking around, the sewers usually have a large number of things. I would do some kid blankets, small receiving blankets or burp cloths. I know children's things always sell fast!

Halloween fabric. Make haul bags (candy tote bag) with a matching water bottle carrier for mom or dad.

I like the eye glass case cause i dont see those. I would also make some that would fit sunglasses.

We do craft fairs and one of our good friends sells only stuff she sews. She sells like crazy (like $1000 a show) and the only things she has to sell is pot holders, placemats, microwave potato bags, those towels with the buttons on them and in the winter she makes snowman ornaments.

Oh, curling iron holders to put your irons in when they are still warm. Those are big sellers at the shows we've been in.

 Also have a few kid items. Little girl purses, crayon rolls, capes for the boys, things like that. Put them in the front. If you can get the kids in, the parents will follow!

Maybe blankets with matching pillows or pillowcases, kitchen towels
