knitted Bob the Builder

Evening! I hope you are all off doing your entries for this weeks challenge??!!!
No?.... well have a look at these then. I have finally finished Bob the Builder. He has been a royal pain in the rear end & there has been a few hysterical laughing fits whilst knitting him. I think I am finally happy with the finished toy. I'm pretty sure the little laddy he is for will love him!






Because he is for a little boy I have sewn everything on well. Didn't want any removable bits.
Back to my Fulham played which I first knitted as a Westham player so I'm now changing his kit.....sometimes I do wonder about my brain!!!

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
