    Bunko? Isn't that a dice game? Maybe little zipper pouches to put game pieces in? Or go another way and get little photo albums, cover them with great fabric and insert a couple of recipes for snacks. If you all get together to play games, there must be snacks!

    Do you have to make a gift for every participant or just for the big winner?

    In my Bunko group charges $5 to play and at the end the $$ is divided among the winners depending on the # of players:

    Most wins
    Most looses
    Equal wins and looses
    Most Bunkos

    The person holding the bunko stone last gets the final Bunko gift, put together by the hostess.

    When I hosted at my house I made a qlap quilt. They didn't know but they syspected it would be a quilt and the competition was amazing. Thank God I had no neighbors at the time because the scraming, yelling and laughing could be heard miles away. It was Halloween and we were all dressed up. I magine the screamming when at he end I was holding the bunko stone. I gave the gift to the person holding it before me. I also made two totes to be raffled among people who had never won anything before.

    It was described as the best Bunko ever in our group. That may have had something to do with the fact that before he left, DH made a pitcher of Mango Mojitos. Nobody was drunk, but very tipsy for a while. We made sure every one was safe to drive and ended up taking two girls home that day and one stayed overnight. It was so much fun.

    Ever since DH lost his job I lost my interest nad haven't gone back to play. I do miss it.

    Yes we get kind of crazy too! I need:
    1 $25 prize
    1 $20 pize
    2 $15 prizes
    8 $5 prizes

    We all pitch in $10 and the person hosting makes the dinner and comes up with the prizes.

    I thought of a quilt for the big prize but making a quilt for only $25 is a little hard. Or I just can't think of a way. The $5 prizes are my hardest to figure out.

    The only quilt I would do for $25 would be a small wallhanging. I have sold some wholecloth for that amount, because I make them in one day.

    For your $5 I suggest fabric wallets: I make the one on the pic and sell for that price. The pattern was at my LQS for $5.00.

    How much time do you have?

    How about an ironing board caddy. Made one for a drawing in my quilt guild and it was a hit. Found a free pattern on line.

    I'm working on a set of Criss-Cross Coasters to go with a table runner I'm making for a wedding gift. The coasters are fun to make and everyone I've given a set really likes them. I think they would make a fun (and inexpensive) bunko gift. Here's the link:
