Felted Flower Bouquet

Well I forgot to take a pictures of our students project before I took it to school and this is the picture I received from the winner. Each student picked a flower, and put it in a bag with dish soap to start felting, I took them home felted them and brought them back to school. Then everyone picked out a button, and a thread color and sewed the button and the other embellishments, and intro to embroidery for 3 year olds. This went for $120.00 and the picnic basket went for $75.00.

Picnic Anyone?

Our Preschool is having a silent auction tonight. All the teachers had to make an item for the auction, and one of the other teachers suggested I make a picnic for 4. So this is it. I would estimate my time at about 30 hours and I retail valued it at $125.00. I didn't have to buy any yarn it is all stash yarn. I used patterns from the Tasty Crochet book, and made them a smaller size to accommodate toddler hands. The basket was 50 cents and the fabric $4.
Anyway I will let you know how much a picnic for 4 is worth.
2 Salami, Swiss Cheese, Lettuce, Tomato on Whole Wheat

2 Peanut Butter and Jelly on White Bread

Apple Wedges, Pear and Apple (4 Carrot Sticks too)
4 Chocolate Chip Cookies

My next post will be, about my students and what they created for the auction.
