I'm co-ordinating the craft stall at my sons school fair this year. It's my first time and it's a big job.
I received a couple of giant bags full of this fleecy type fabric (tracksuit fabric) and decided to make some wheat bags.

What other items would you suggest I make? There is fabric of all colours and sizes.

I blogged about it here ( http://www.sameliasmum.com/2011/08/s...ns-please.html ) and have had a few suggestions of soft toys and capes etc...

Here is a picture of the wheat bag I've made.

The snappy bags are cute and quick too.

Not sure if this is what you are looking for but bags for marbles. You can get marbles really cheaply online and can write directions to a marble game.

How about some scarfs ? just cut the ends to fringe them. I used to be in charge of the raffle quilt (also, made it) for my sons elementary for 4 years. I also made "Bag bags" but not with fleece (you know the bags that hold plastic bags, I know there are other names for them), with fleece maybe doll blankets ?? Good luck
