As part of our ongoing fundraising efforts we have been attending community events and having a stall selling various items. Now that we are coming into Winter we have lots more events coming up and need more things for our stall. By far the best selling items are those that are handmade -toys, jewellery, cards, tea cosies and baby clothing have all done well. But do you have any other ideas? what does well at events local to you?
As the weather is getting colder and people are wrapping up in coats I thought about brooches- they can be made up quite quickly and use just scraps of yarn or fabric.
The one above is just a pattern I made up but, lots can be found on the web.

Fabric brooch patterns
If you would like to help us fill our stall with hand-crafted treats that would be a huge help or if you can offer tips and ideas on what we could sell please do share!

    I’ll have a look at what I can do. Idid a millinery course last year and we were taught how to make fabric flowers, I’m sure I could make them into brooches.

    I can always do more of the bead and charm jewellery I’ve sent before. I love to buy cakes and other eats at a stall but I’m hopeless at making them ‘pretty’ enough to sell!
