I would quite like to do stall at DS's school Fayre in a couple of weeks, I am really keen on sewing - usually large cushions, quilts and bags but as it is school children (primary age) I want to do pocket money things that will be cheap to make and therefore cheap to sell, they need to be items that I can make a lot of in a short amount of time.

Any ideas??? One thing I did think of was stuffed lovehearts for pin cushions or just to hang for about £2.00 or £2.50...

A tiny stocking with a mini chocolate bar in?

Or even sell kits for these that the children can make themselves as pressies.

Little Xmas tree ornaments - eg felt snowmen, robins, angels, Santa etc? I love to buy a new handmade ornament every year so I'd be looking for something like that.

Great ideas!

Think I will do the felt stocking with a mini choc bar or sweetie in and do little felt kits so that the children can make them at home.

My dd (6) would love a stuffed loveheart to hang from a door handle etc.

I used the mini dairy milk bars when I did it with my class I'm sure yours will look much better for some reason they seem Christmassy to me!

Little felt Christmas trees/ snowmen/ penguins with a few sequins on and a safety pin on the back , sell as a Christmas badge/ brooch. suits both boys and girls.

these are really easy to make and involve no sewing, cut cutting. If you google candy cane mice you should be able to get a free template.

Bunting in Christmas colours, or in white/silver, glue on some sequins!

Ojos de dios make super tree decorations, just do simple ones as time is short.

You could stuff some of the hearts with dried lavender, a fab present for a Mum or Gran.
