The Start of Something Big

This tree is the start of a large storage bin of sorts. Anyone been reading long enough to remember this? I am attempting a few more... this time maybe with a bit more stiffness. I hope them to be able to at least sort of stand on their own, rather than just being HUGE (20"x20"x 25-30") floppy bags until filled.

I hope I can get it all figured out in a economical and timely fashion. I only have until November for these, and whatever oddities I decide upon, to be finished. I've been invited to sell them at a semi-local tag sale. Eeeeek!

I am completely UNconfident, but I am going to do it anyway. At Melissa's advice, I'm going to jump in with both feet and fake it until I feel it. If this goes well (or maybe even if it doesn't), I might consider etsy in the spring. I hardly know what to think of any of it. But here goes and please wish me luck!

I guess if nothing sells, I'll have a lot of Christmas gifts on hand.

If you have one left over I will buy it...Quinn has her own apartment and I can give it to her for Christmas as a magazine holder!
LOVE IT! You and your sister and your niece make me so envious with the sewing talent that you have. I only dream of being so creative!
