376  CRAFTY BUSINESS ADVICE / Crafty Business Discussion / Re: How did you come up with your brand name? on: June 21, 2007 06:04:35 AM
My business name is Tattered Rags... my daughter came up with the name for me several years ago, and I think it fits perfectly since I like for my dolls to have tattered clothing.

wow, you've made tons of dolls!  They are all very cute!
The dolls that I have been sewing look similar to yours!

Thank you! I have made a ton of dolls... I guess you could say I'm a little obsessed with them... seriously I think I've made over a thousand dolls by now.

I looked at your website... your girls are lovely! I like the one with the striped stockings and pink tattered tutu Smiley She's a cutie!

380  CRAFTY BUSINESS ADVICE / Crafty Business Discussion / Re: How to cope with being too popular? Seriously! ;-) on: June 20, 2007 05:56:23 AM

I've had my doll business for 4 years now and I still get overwhelmed with custom orders often.The best way I have found to deal with it and keep everyone happy at the same time is this...

First I threw out the first come first serve idea and started filling my order book by intended purchase dates which helps ALOT!  And I keep a pretty good inventory of dolls for the times I'm booked up and need a doll to list on Ebay ( I like to keep a one doll a week presence there for marketing reasons)  I also almost always work on more than one doll at a time... I break down the process into steps... cutting bodies, making faces, stuffing bodies, clothing, hair, accessories.  I spend a whole day dedicated to each step... if it's cut bodies day, I cut 40 or so.  If it's make faces day I do about 10. Then I'll spend another day stuffing them all and so on. Did that make sense?
