Ellephantastic Design Team day & sneaky peak at a new digi!!

Good sunny morning!!
Today is Ellephantastic Design Team Day, doesn't it come round quick?!!
We have a couple changes this week. First we would like say farewell & goodluck to Linda who is starting her own new venture so has stepped down from Elle DT. We wish her all the luck in the world & know she will do a fantastic job. If you would like to catch up with Linda & her new venture click HERE

Now I would like to introduce you to 2 new Elle DT members
Michelle aka Thistle's Happy Place you may recognise Michelle as she has appeared on the Ellephantastic Showcase a few times HERE
I chose Michelle to be part of the team because she shows how versatile little Roger is. Here is her first DT project
isn't this lovely & I love how she's used the image twice, great idea!

Now I would like to itroduce our 2nd new DT member Vanja aka Vanja's Crafty Den. I have known Vanja for a while now I think she won my first ever blog candy!!
I have chosen Vanja to join our team because I have always been a huge fan of her gorgeous creations.
Here's Vanja's first DT project.

Now lets see what the lovely Angie has been up to!
Angie aka lilacanglia has gone for something a bit different this week & has done a scrap book page. What a fabby idea! 
Also can I just say Angie has been making some gorgeous necklaces & bracelets & they are available to buy on her blog, all proceeds go to her local RSPCA. I have bought one of her necklaces they are gorgeous!

Lets see what Jane's been up to?
Jane aka Whoopsie Daisy has also gone for something a bit different this week & has made a lovely little gift card holder.
I just love the colours & Roger looks so cuddly!!

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…
