My children's daycare is having their annual silent auction. All of the parents are encouraged to collect donations from local businesses - or just contribute gift cards, or whatever. Then there is a big silent auction night where all the families, friends and friends of families walk around and bid on items. This is the biggest fundraising event all year for their school and is quite a tradition. It's always a lot of fun and you never know what type of items will be available. Last year we somehow ended up with some Sea Monkeys. I'm hoping we fare a little better this year. Some families go all out and are able to contribute a condo for a weekend or some sports team tickets.
For our donations - I've got a call into Monkey's Treehouse hoping for a free family admission pack or something - and then I've made this! My daughter's classroom is putting together a whole gift basket with an Easter them, so this will be included in that. The puffy cottontail on the back was actually my son's idea. I gathered the edges of the little tail applique before sewing on - and then actually stuffed it with some poly-fill stuffing. How cute is that?!
I considered listing on Etsy because I have supplies to make more if needed but - I'm trying to steer away from the holiday wear. Any interest - just leave me a comment or email me. I'll be happy to do custom ones!
