I have made a few baby hats that I am wanting to sell either on eBay or Etsy. I am wanting to at least get my money for the yarn and a little for my time. The yarn is a good quality cotton/cotton blend yarn from my LYS.
I have shown them to my Mom and she told me that I should sell them for $25.00. I just don't know if I can get that out of them. I know that some people are willing to pay for hand made items and the work that you have put into it, but there are so many that won't.
This is where I need your help. I am wondering what you think? What would you sell them for? What would you be willing to pay for them?
I didn't use a full skein for a hat, but I don't have nearly enough to make another one. I might get 1/4 of a hat from what is left, so unless I make one that is striped out of all the left overs I can only get one hat per skein. I was hoping to get 2, but that was not the case.
Please leave me any and all comments and advice that you might have for me in this venture. I am looking to just make some money to support my yarn addiction. I appreciate all of your advice.
Thanks for all your help!!
