Ellephantastic is going to be on TV!!!!!!

Ok here it is:
The other day CH5 contacted me after seeing my shop (website) & asked me if I would make them some commissioned knitted dolls. Its to do with the competition Harry Hill's doing
The K Factor.
My knitted doll is now on its way to FIVE & will be on The Gadget Show on
Monday 8th March
probably going to appear on the Harry Hill show but I don't know when & now I've been told The Sun paper might also want to cover it.

OMG!!!
I have to stop thinking & keep telling myself its just some knitting or I might stop breathing!!

I've got another doll to make for someone on TV who has requested one. Not sure if or when that will be on TV but I'll keep you posted when I find out more.

Exciting or what?!

Can't show you pictures till its been on TV so for now you'll have to be patient!!!

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…

Buttons Picture Gift

This week Murphy's friend's little sister turned one and I decided I would have a go at a buttons picture as a present for her. I'm really pleased with how it turned out. Very pretty for a very pretty little girly. She's my little smiley buddy when I do the school run. No matter how I feel she makes me smile.
If you would like to order a picture gift please contact me for more details
