My children's school has a Christmas Bazaar every year just for the children. They each bring in a bit of money and we try to make lots of things that don't cost too much. Little crochet creatures and so on don't use up much yarn, so they're perfect. Here's what I made, using my own patterns.

Trolls with fuzzy hair (pattern: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=289504.msg3293862#msg3293862):

Ice cream cones (pattern: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=289504.msg3315182#msg3315182):

Tiny teddies (pattern: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=289504.msg3296032#msg3296032):

Eggs (pattern: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=378233.0):

Mice: (pattern: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=289504.msg3315125#msg3315125).

Snakes (pattern: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=289504.msg3294051#msg3294051):

Various other little things:

I also made lots of crocheted wristbands, about twice as many as here:

These are pendants made by crocheting thin cotton yarn round a marble, again I made about twice as many of these (Pattern: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=289504.msg3293632#msg3293632):

Using a similar method to the tiny teddies - using popcorn stitches to make the arms & legs - I also made these tiny Adipose creatures (from Doctor Who) for my little boys:

I hope that these will help anybody that is trying to make things for a similar event. I can try and sort out patterns if anyone is interested (though it may take a little time). I've also posted pictures of the non-crochet items I made over in the Toys, dolls & playthings forums (http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=289498.0), and I also posted items I made for a previous bazaar, with lots of patterns here: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=213278.msg2291126#msg2291126

wow! Did the bazaar happen yet? I'm wondering what the biggest seller is. Everything is so cute and well made! I've never seen crocheted trolls before; those are awesome! I'm loving the eggs, personally. I'd spend all my duckets on those.

Want to contribute to an art installation? Any help would be great-join the ball game! go to 6/29/2008 of this blog for details: http://cthulhucrochet.blogspot.com/
