Off to Auction

Back in the fall I committed to whip up a few things to go to an auction for my old high school. It’s a Christian school, so they do a big auction every year to help raise money and all.

Pretty Crocheted Hairbows

I finished it all up and got it in the mail this weekend! It feels good to finish something. Especially when it’s been on the to do list for a while. I made a bunch of colorful bows using this tutorial.

I also just had fun making a bunch of different headbands with things I had in the craft room.

A Pretty Necklace

And my most favorite thing, this pretty necklace. I was so tempted to keep this. I love the whimsical fabric necklaces that one can create. It was very fun to put together. Maybe I should go make one right now? Hmmmmmm…….

    What a great gift for your old school. I had trouble sending an item I sent out in a Valentine’s package. There is always one that wants to stay.

    Ooh, such pretty things! I wonder if I could knit some hair bows; I can’t crochet very well. I made my daughter a knit headband and a flower clip, but she doesn’t like to wear ‘em. :( Maybe if they were smaller…
