Okay, guys. So after months of sewing, giving things away, then sewing some more, I finally feel like I have enough product to actually start my own Etsy shop. That, and summer vacation starts for me tomorrow when I finish tying up loose ends at school so I'll have lots of time to sew and knit.
So, I was all ready, today, to put some items up for sale when it occurred to me that I'm not sure how to price them! I looked at similar items selling on Etsy to see what they sell for but the prices varied from $10-$35 and I just don't know what would be best!
Here are samples of the things I'm currently selling (in various sizes).
Top row--two different wool soaker patterns.
* The one on the left is a triangle that is sewn into a cover once it's completed. It's the simpler and easier of the two patterns I currently use. I'd say it takes me about 2 hours to knit if I were to knit it in one sitting. It's hard to really know, though, since I never sit down and knit continuously.
*The one on the right with the leg cuffs is knit as a whole piece--there is no sewing that takes place--and it's slightly more difficult to knit and more time consuming. I'd say it takes me about 4 hours to knit if I were to knit it in one sitting. Again, it's hard to know since I never sit down and knit continuously.
I don't think a single soaker will pass by me without some adorable applique added to the butt. Here I've added a simple smiley face and some ruffles. I also have some with polka dots and one with stripes.
Then, there's the matter of different sizes. Should I vary the price from S-M-L?
Bottom Row--two fitted diapers with different closures.
*The diaper on the left has velcro closures with laundry flaps so they will never catch in the wash due to tired laundry tabs.
*The diaper on the right has snap closures (thanks to Kamsnaps.com!)
Should I vary the price between velcro and snaps?
Should I vary the price from S-M-L?
So, I need to know what price you think I should ask for each:
1) Triangle soaker
2) Circular soaker
3) Velcro fitted
4) snapping fitted
Thanks for your time!
And yes, I will probably do a giveaway soon. I'll probably give away one of my fitteds. Maybe after the Kamsnaps giveaway ends. I don't like to do more than one giveaway at a time :-D.
