Make it Colourful Challenge ~ {Black with a hint of red}



Make it Colourful challenge this week is Black with a hint of Red

So I had a dig about in my images that friends have sent me to see if I could find any inspiration & this one just jumped right out at me.
After I had coloured it I wasn't sure what to do next. I just couldn't see a busy card so I've gone for clean & simple using SU's vintage vogue flowers stamp.
I have coloured the image using promarkers.

Thank you for stopping by today, your comments always make me smile & I appreciate every one of them.
Hugs

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…
