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.

Oh, Gwen. This is gorgeous! I love the basket and all the crochet food. I hope your basket goes for a lot. Stash yarn or not, you put a lot of time into this project. Best wishes!
