Crafting for a school fair?

(13 Posts)

I am supposed to be doing a craft stall at DD@s school fair this year, it is a Junior school so am making little amigurumi's, crayon rolls and possibly some tutus.
Any other ideas?!

I have no idea what your examples are grin, hope this doesn't disqualify me.

Do dcs still use pencils? Felt pencil toppers (e.g. horse head) were always a hit in my day (old timer emoticon).

Oh, dolls clothes for barbie/bratz?

Ooh, pencil toppers would work.
Amigurumi's are stuffed crochet or knitted toys, so am making little snowmen, father christmas's, christmas trees and stars (with faces)
Crayon rolls are justa fabric roll thing that have pockets you slot you crayons in, or a fold over book type thing with pockets for crayons and one for a pad as well.
Do I need to explain tutugrin

Dolls clothes good idea, but way too fiddly!

Thanks for explaining - the amigurumis sound cute smile.

You see, you're just not making the Effort, if you think dolls clothes are too fiddly. We had sindy nightdresses, action man pyjamas and KNITTED jumpers, all courtesy of the mums. Who said that parents didn't make more effort in the 70s?

But we don't have any sindies/barbies, and I'd have to go and buy one. Cheap as well as not making the Effortgrin

tbh, for school fairs, i would stick to items which you will sell cheaply, pocket money prices. what about decorated hair slides, key rings?

or another idea for larger items, christmas stocking?

Hair slides and keyrings are great.
I am planning on doing lots of sticking filler things as well as a few more expensive things (like nicer crayon rolls and tote bags, 'purses') but still under a fiver.

Sorry, thanks for ideas!
