Coffee Themed Basket & Other Donations for Camp

Posted on

Coffee Themed Gift BasketA few blog posts ago, I posted about making prizes & gift baskets for camp.

The golfing fundraiser was a success, apparently bringing in about $2000 for the camp after expenses.

My husband home-roasted coffee and I created these coffee cozies for our donation to the cause.

I found the basket at a second hand store, and we calculated the entire expense to us at about $15.  Not too shabby considering we could probably sell a basket like this for about $40.

I’ll be posting a future blog post for the coffee cozy pattern I used, but for now, I’ll just link you to Ravelry, where any number of amazing coffee cup patterns can be found: Coffee Cozy search on Ravelry.

I stitched a simple golf club and ball on the green-colored cotton yarn, and a simple white heart on the red cozy.  There are also French knots on the golf ball to create the textured look.

As I made up the patterns for the golf club and golf ball, I hope that this post inspires you to add embellishments to your crocheted coffee cozies!

The Starbucks re-useable cups were $2 each, and have made a great gift for teachers who love coffee.  I’ve given several of them away to our favorite teachers.

I also hand-stamped the coffee bags.  My hubby picked the bags up from Amazon, and we’ve been using them to give 1/2-pound bags of home-roasted coffee away as he roasts it.

One more thing I want to show off is the cute little hat I donated to the charities “for sale” table that they have up at events.  Its’ a beanie with ears.  I used a simple hat pattern from Ravelry, and stamped up a cute little tag to go with it using my Mason Row click stamps.
