Teddy Stampers Love

I treated myself the other day to some Forever Friends Valentines stamps & papers.
Now I have a propper work station (sssh all will be revealed tomorrow on WOYWDW!!) it was easier for me to get inking them up & play around. I have used a past Just Magnloia sketch as my inspiration.
I am entering this into a new challenge for me called

Teddy Stampers - recipe 1 ribbon, 2 pattern papers & 3 brads or buttons

I have used 2 pattern papers from my new FF papers, pink ribbon from my stash & 3 mini pink brads for the flowers.

You may notice also on my side bar that I will be sponsoring them so watch out for that!

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…
