Oh, that sounds do-able. However, I don't have a breadmaker. Would mixing the dough with my stand mixer or by hand work? Does it need time to rise and then be knocked back before rolling out? Sorry for the barrage of questions, I'm kind of excited by how easy they sound (for some reason I'd always assumed they would be a complex little beastie to cook).
263  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Wicked cute infant hat version 1.0 on: February 01, 2012 06:52:54 PM
Everyone needs a collection of ridiculous hats. It's just a fact.
I've just rediscovered knitting, and found a fantastically soft, textured yarn in the box of weird and unloved yarns in the basement.
One of my best friends from high school is expecting her first baby any day now (in fact I think she reached term today).
Obviously, these three facts led me to knit a hat for Peanut when he or she arrives. I'm rather proud of how it turned out. I didn't use a pattern, I just had one of those eureka moments and knew how I could make it.
Sorry for the shoddy picture quality, I can't actually find my camera right now, I'll try and put better pics up tomorrow, but here we go...

I might pick up some more yarn and make a hat like this for myself. Who doesn't love them some tassels, I ask you?

Oh my god I love muffins! They're one of the foods from home I really miss. Would you make this English girl a very happy dinosaur and share your recipe? They look utterly perfect!

Just remember that the zig-zag stitch is your friend, and you shouldn't run into many gremlins.

Need. Dress. Now.

Holy bananas, batman. This is so stinkin' awesome in every conceivable way. And DINOSAURS! Oh my... Might need to get that pattern and the fan-freaking-tastic robot print fabric I found and make my own homage to your awesomeness. Also, your hair is making me miss my multicoloured days.. Sadly my job won't let me get away with anything so spectacular...

Holy cephalopod, Batman! I think I may have just figured out what to make the other half for Valentines day...

Ok, I'll admit it. I totally squeed when I saw him standing. He's fantastic! How old is your little dinosaur-wrangler? Also, hope that wrist heals nice and quickly for you.

SQUEEE! I might need to make one, being a professional viking tamer myself... Also, there's something marvelous about a plushie axe...

Afternoon fellow crafty bods.
My apologies if this has been addressed elsewhere, but I need to pick your brains.
Last year I made a plushy pillow monster based loosely on the Mystery Critter pattern for a friend's toddler. His mum and dad loved it (as did the small personage), and now they've come to me with a proposition. Small personage's dad is a camp director at the summer camp I used to work at. His co-directors (and the majority owners of the camp) have decided that they want to give teddybears to the youngest campers this summer, and have asked if I would be interested in making 100 plushies.  I'm beyond stoked at this prospect. However, I have no clue how to put a value on my time. The plushies are pretty easy to make, and the materials are fairly inexpensive (fleece, felt, thread, fiberfill and reclaimed cotton knit from camp T-shirts), however, they're fiddly and time consuming as I machine embroider and applique all the critter's features. I haven't figured out how much time is invested in each one, but I would estimate around 1 - 1 1/2 hours.
This is basically a long-winded way of saying, how much is my time worth? I really don't know how to put a number on that, and would be interested to hear from other craftsters how much they figure their time to be worth when working out selling prices.
Thanks for sharing your wisdom and experience!
