1  CRAFTING FOR GOOD AND NOT EVIL / Crafty Charitable/Social Causes / Quick cheap crafted prizes? on: July 05, 2011 02:26:49 PM
Wow, I haven't been here in a looong time!  Missed you guys!

Anyway, I'm participating in our local Relay For Life, and will be running a game (a quarter toss, like at the fair) at our site.  I'm desperately seeking some quick and cheap (crafted?) prizes.  (I'm buying a bunch of imprinted rubber bracelets, but need more stuff.)  I've only got a month left, and my funds are running low, but my ambition is not!

No idea is a dumb idea, but I need ideas FAST!

Since I'm snowed in today (yay blizzard!) I'm working on my 2nd batch for a cookie exchange at work this week.  Though how I'll be able to leave these alone until the exchange I have NO idea.  LOVE this recipe, I've used yours since you posted it!  Thanks bunches!

I'm so sorry for posting so late!  Here is the wonderful dottee I got from dragonslair, along with the beautiful notecard and note.

I was going for creepy cute with him, but having no experience, I think he may have just turned out plain creepy.  And I'm sorry that I couldn't finish off the edges better, I over-estimated my sewing abilities by a LONG shot and kind of had to make do. I hope you like him at least a little.   Smiley

Hee, I'm glad you like the kitty, mamarose.  It's kinda supposed to be a tiger striped kitty dreaming that he's a real tiger, but it's hard to put that much into felt and buttons.   Roll Eyes  Oh well.

I finally sent.  I'm a little sad because I wasn't able to come up with much, and my sewing skills were sorely lacking, so I had to figure out other methods.  They may not really be strictly dottees, but I hope they're okay.  But they're all on their way east at least.

I have to apologize to my partners, I will not be sending until Wednesday, as that's when my unemployment check comes in.  (I was hoping to have found a job by this time, guess I was a little too ambitious in that respect?)

Anyway, sorry for the delay.   Sad

Sorry I'm so late in posting, I received this adorable little Native American princess from mamarose over the weekend.

We love her, and I've already had to retrieve her from my daughter's stash about 3 different times!

I'm so relieved that you liked what I sent, jexxican!!!  I'll totally send you a link for the video on making those knotted tug toys, you just make them with old jeans, and they're pretty easy, but seem pretty durable?  You'll have to let me know how long they last with your pup.   Grin

Sorry I didn't post sooner, I got my awesome loot from jexxican yesterday, and only just now found time to post pics.

First off is this awesome (felt?) catnip kitty toy and a little bag of catnip.  I didn't get a fantastic picture of the toy, because Squish was too busy going nuts. 

Here's what I got before she took off with the mouse:


That was for love your pets day.

Then, for National Bird Feeding Month, I got this very cute (and recycled!  bonus!) birdfeeder.  I may have to make more of these and decorate them with my daughter as gifts for the grandparents!



And finally, my favorite item was for children's authors and illustrators day.  It's a fantastic sewn book bag with the Very Hungry Caterpillar on it.  We've already been playing with the different textures on the fabric swatches.  It's so great!  We love it!




Thanks so much, jexxican!

Hey guys!  I'm actually a little freaked out that sendouts are tomorrow, my last item is giving me all kids of fits.  But my first two are pretty much in the bag and ready to go.  Hopefully I'll be able to settle myself and have everything finished today.  Sorry for the delay!
