Need some ideas

February 5th, 2018 at 08:01 am

As you may have guessed, I'm pretty involved in my church. Two things our ladies guild does is have a rummage sale in June and a Christmas Bazaar in January.

Two Christmases ago I crocheted little crochet thread ornaments and put them on Christmas trees and donated them. The trees sold, but I think I paid more for the trees than what they got at the bazaar. I bought the trees at thrift stores and an estate sale, but I felt like I did a lot of work for nothing. I also found a candlewick stocking and did it and donated it and it sold.

This year with leftover yarn from the hats we make in the knitting group, I crocheted dish clothes. I think I donated over 30 and they all sold. So, I'm going to continue to make those.

But, I was wondering if you have some ideas on other easy things to make that I can try and donate to either the rummage sale or bazaar. Are there certain things you like?

Thanks in advance.

    You know, my aunts used to crochet hanger covers. They were really nice for hanging slippery items and knits. I haven't seen any in ages. Could you do that?

    Now, that's an idea. I will have to see if I can find a pattern, CB. Thanks for the suggestion!

    It's hard to know what will sell in a specific market. I'm seeing lots of women wearing pink or multi colored knit, ' Cat' slouch hats. I'm thinking they are making/wearing, so popular at rallies. Friends that went to friend's Super Bowl party commented on host having knit/crochet men's slippers for guests. If you live in a region with snow boots these are easily stuffed into pockets.

    Teen guys here wear 'traveller' scarves [long, block, dull colors, no fringe] . Teen girls have small 2" or so favorite/meaningful knit animal or Zodiac figure on a key ring/chain, attached to note books/cell phone/backpack, zip on puffy ski jacket etc.

    What will be cute accessory fall 2018?
