    Default Need ideas for a Spring Craft Auction

    I am in a sorority and we do a spring craft auction. I need some ideas on what to make that doesn't cost a ton but will sell for a lot, kwim? I can do pretty much anything crafty but paint or draw detailed. I can knit and crochet and sew a small amount. TIA

    Hmmm. . . .

    The milk jug squeeze bunnies are a good choice ---

    Shawls are poplular right now-- even just fabric ones with ribbon or fringe trim.

    If you have an inexpensive source of garden or flower seeds in bulk, you can print up seed packets and sell those.

    Hmm. . . I'll keep looking through my files to see what I might have saved, that would work.

    insulated lunch bags? these can be for children, teens, adults-- just by varying the fabrics used.

    How about pot holders. Quick and easy to make.

    I'm not sure of the health codes/regulations where you are, but can you make up drink mixes? I did flavored coffees and Chai tea mixes for my coworkers for Christmas -- they were a huge hit.

    I made up big batches, and packaged them individually in tiny ziplock baggies (Hobby Lobby sells them) . Then I added my own labels (made them on the computer - on address labels).

    If you have a decent camera -- you can take pictures of local interest sites, and make up sets of post cards or note cards for sale.

    I also did pictures on bookmarks with inspirational quotes.
