My day didn’t go as planned as I hoped it’d go. I intended on taking down the Christmas decor, washing three loads of laundry including the bedding, and going grocery shopping. As I’m sure you’ve guessed by now, none of those things happened. How were they supposed to if I didn’t make a point of completing them? That just means that my “take it easy day” was today rather than tomorrow.
BUT, I did finish my 2nd scarf and surprisingly I’ve had two people ask what it’d cost to make one. Wow, huh!? I was surprised. I mean, yeah, down the road I think it’d be fun to make these and sell them at craft shows but I honestly didn’t think someone would approach me for one. Very cool!
So I’ll be meeting up with someone tomorrow to pick out yarn with my first customer and I’ll get to work on my first commissioned project. I plan on selling it to her pretty cheap just because she was one of the first to ask about it and quite honestly, I haven’t thought of a selling strategy or pricing scale yet. Either way, it’ll feel rewarding to know that someone is wearing something that I made. That I made! Who knows, maybe it’ll be a conversation starter. I could only hope!
So let me ask you, looking at this posts photos and the last, what would you realistically value these types of crocheted scarves at? If you’re like me, I’d prefer to see something with my hands first than make a split second decision but I do feel like these photos accurately show what the product is. The yarn costs about $5 total. Keep in mind that the yarn price varies depending on the type but I ultimately want to come to a universal cost that covers both the product supplies and the labor. Let me know!
