Now then, an explanation behind the blog title! No - there's not going to be a new addition to the family (not that I'm aware of!). But I'm doing a couple of craft fairs in the next couple of weeks and the first one is a baby & toddler fair, so I got busy with the hook & wool and crocheted up a few 'baby' things. They are sooooo cute! And I've really enjoyed doing them. The biggest problem is coming up with prices for them! I'm always the same - I make quite a few cards and crocheted things to order for people, but I have real difficulty in pricing things. It's so hard. You can't really charge for all the time you take to make something (goodness knows how much the price would be then lol!), and it's trying to find a balance between the cost of materials and a fair price on the time/skill it takes to make something. As I'm sure any crafters who make things can verify, non-crafters seem to think that if it's "handmade" that means it hasn't cost anything to make! Oh if only that were true!
Anyway, I just thought I'd share a few pics of the crocheted baby bits - and any suggestions for prices would be VERY welcome!
Some cute little hats to keep heads warm!
Some baby bibs for all the dribbles and spills (and there are plenty of those!)
And these are definitely high on the cute factor! Little shoes for baby feet!
I've enjoyed making these a lot and I've a sneaking feeling that when one of our gorgeous offspring announces that a new member of the family is on the way, they may get inundated with crocheted goodies! Well, that's what nannas are for isn't it? lol!
I hope that you have a good week, whatever you have planned. And thank you so much for all your lovely comments and support - it means such a lot to know that you take the time to have a look at my crafting efforts! And remember - any help you can offer with pricing ideas would be very welcome!
