Silent Auction Sewing

A member of our church will be leaving later this month for South Korea as part of the Presbyterian Church (USA) Young Adult Volunteer program. However he is responsible for raising the money necessary to get him there (and back). The church has been holding a variety of fundraising events for him, and one of the last ones is a talent show and silent auction. I don't have much to offer for the talent show portion of the evening, but I figured I could put together a few things for the silent auction.

Apron and Pot Holders

I decided to make an apron with matching pot holders. The apron is an Amy Butler pattern, made from a Michael Miller fabric I found in my stash. I can't seem to remember what it's called. I've made a few of these aprons already. I LOVE them. They pattern is pretty simple and I just think they're so cute!

Potholders are another quick, easy project. I thought it would be fun to make some to match the apron.

Taggy Cubes

Since I already had the fabric for these cute little baby toys already cut, it was nice and quick to just sew them up and stuff them for the auction.

I love the sock monkeys. As soon as I saw this fabric, I knew I had to make some baby toys out of them. They're nice and soft, and have bells in them for added fun. And as you can see, they are Baby Brother approved!
