A pretty pink bunny gift bag

By heck its dark here already. Had rubbish light all day for pics!
I am joining in with a new challenge with this called
Crafty Creations - "Textures" (fluffy feet, card, ribbon, buttons)
I'm also entering it into
Tuesday Morning Sketchers - "buttons & bows"
& (updated)
Kaboodle doodles - "anything but a card"

Got a bit stuck with this because I did the bunny (Joanna Sheen image) with her Fluffy feet, (check out her feet!!) & then couldnt decide on a layout for a card so I went blog hopping for inspiration & remembered Angie had done a fab tutorial for a gift bag for
Character Cafe Tuesday Tutorial....problem solved!!

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…
