How I price my toys ....

.....I thought I would share with you today how I price my knitted Monsters.
I spent a long time researching how to price them and looking at how much other people charge for their toys (which are often not CE tested which they should be!)
Pricing ingredients: Cost of the products: wool, stuffing Use of equipment & other: Knitting needles, scissors, electricity for lights  My time: Designing the toy, knitting the toy, testing the toy CE Test: Making sure my toy is to CE standards
Now you have to decided how much you want to pay yourself an hour and any extra profit
How much do you get paid an hour? Shall we say minimum wage £7.50 per hour
The largest toy I make is Pookiechu (the pink one) she takes me 16 hours to make 16 x 7.50 = 120
so that makes Pookiechu £120 before I've even added on the cost of any wool etc!
I therefore decided to pay myself a lot less and she became £65 However even though I know you are paying for a quality toy made with quality products and to the CE stand…

I over do things because keeping busy takes me away from the anxiety and depression, but the truth is all I am doing is running straight into the arms of my fatigue monster when I do it! This picture is something I thought of the other day to explain this feeling. 
I try to meditate and I am starting to do small amounts of stretching and yoga, but the one thing that helps keep relaxed and sane, and has done for many years now is my crafting. I love all kinds of crafts. My latest makes are my CE tested Sensory Monsters "The Peepos" they are great to touch and cuddle when you're feeling blue. 
I have also found my online friends in the crafting communities and chronic fatigue groups very helpful and comforting. Stops you feeling so isolated. 
Something that brings me happiness is helping others which I hope to do with my sensory to…
