1  CRAFTY BUSINESS ADVICE / Selling Crafts on Etsy.com / Re: The (new) Etsy critique thread! on: December 14, 2012 07:05:15 PM
thanks, I appreciate the advice! I've had a hard time deciding on prices because I'm basically doing crafts that I've been doing for fun for a while and trying to sell them. It's so hard for me to look at something I've been doing for friends and family as something that has monetary value. I had the prices a little higher and my husband told me that he thought it was too high (but then again he's a guy and thinks everything on Etsy is overpriced LOL). I'll talk to some local crafters and reconsider the prices.

I just started my shop about a week ago after a lot of encouragement from friends. I read the top part of this thread and will work on getting mor pictures of my items and find out info on international shipping. Apart from that, does anyone have any advice to improve my chances for success?
Any advice would help  Smiley

Ok, last Christmas present related post (for now  Wink
my friends asked me to make her a bantha for christmas. This was my attempt. I'm not 100 percent happy with the face, but I think it looks cute, despite not being totally Bantha-like...for those of you who don't know, Banthas are from star wars  Grin

this last picture is him without his fur on yet. He has a full wire skeleton, including a kind of rib cage, to give him a stable form. I filled him with polyfill and then wrapped him with thread to keep it all inside the skeleton. Then, I wrapped with white wool batting before putting on the higher quality brown roving for fur.
