so i've involved myself in a couple of charity auctions that are being run over on facebook. the first one i better tell you about is happening on the Luellabella page. i have donated this lovely little summer outfit....

Luellabella Facebook Charity Auction donation

the baby knickers are completely reversible (how cool is that?) so it's kinda like getting two outfits in one. the winning bidder can choose from newborn to size 2. the auction ends 8pm this sunday night and all proceeds are going to SA Dog rescue and Flick's cat rescue. there's all kinds of great things in the auction album to have a bid on, i've got my eye on a few things.

the second auction is being held over on the Funky Fabrix page. i have donated this special guy...

Gaz standing

i don't usually name the monkeys that are bound for new homes but i've made an exception for gareth, he likes to be called gaz. i made this foxy playsuit for him....

and here's the back...

foxy playsuit back

i made the pattern up myself (high five to me) and it took about 5 times longer to make that i anticipated. i have a few dodgy pairs laying about but i got there in the end!

Martin rides at the rear

i was staring at the little scrap of sock i had left and it seemed such a shame to toss it so i made martin the sock koala to be a little cuddle toy for gaz. i'm actually quite fond of little martin the sock koala, i could easily keep him for myself. it's nice to put in the little extra touch when it's for charity because nice people bid on charity auctions and nice people look after special handmade toys. all the proceeds of this auction go to Camp Autism and the bidding opens on monday, 10th october. i'm not very consistent with my use of capital letters am i? i really don't like them much if you hadn't noticed!
