Pretty Row Markers / Beauties Pageant 29

I’m in charge of purchasing items for my guild’s monthly raffles. It’s a good gig—I get to enjoy the process of buying fun stuff without growing my own stash.

To keep things interesting, I’ve been trying to come up with ideas other than books, patterns, and fabric to use as raffle prizes. For the May meeting, I’m assembling a collection of notions to raffle off and decided a set of handmade row markers might go over well with the group.

These markers are super easy to make with the tutorial at Leland Ave Studios. I ordered the number stickers and laminating pouches on Amazon and used Art Gallery’s Bundle Up: Geometrical Edition for the background fabrics. A set of stickers and a packet of laminating pieces produce two sets of 10 row markers, with some numbers left over.

I am hoping these will be a hit at the next meeting, but I need to pair them with other interesting notions. Got any ideas? Let me know in the comments!

  1. Fun idea, I like those row markers! Pairing them with a mini portable design wall?

  2. Pair them with cut pins or clover clips (to hold them in place in use)?

  3. Cute and fun row markers. I'd pair with pins to attach them. The portable design wall is a good idea too. MelvaLovesScraps(at)NolanQualityCustoms(dot)com

  4. I'd have said pins/ clover clips, too. I love that you have both options. It took me a second but then I saw the two holes in the laminate where you can easily pin through :)

    For other extras I am a bit stumped. I am a touch minimalist - lol. But how about a small pouch/ zipper bag to keep them in that has a fun quote or something on the side?
