(Sorry if this is in the wrong place, I wasn't sure.)

My mum makes these little felt Christmas decorations for the tree and has sold them before for charity but doesn't know if they are good enough for selling online (Etsy, Ebay, not sure where yet). I told her I think they would sell, but she's not sure. I really need some help for her if they would sell and for what price. I haven't sold any of my crafts before so I'm not that much help to her. Embarrassed

She makes 5 different shapes, here they are:



Slightly more of a close-up at these links:

So, what does everyone here think? Before, she sold them for 2 for the 5. Are they too simple to sell online? I know it's too late to sell for this Christmas, but it could be a money making idea for next year. Thanks in advance. Smiley

Sometimes simple is best. The stitching appears to be VERY neat, which makes them much more desirable than if they appeared to be hastily done. I think selling them in a set is a great idea, that way you get some same-style ornaments in different shapes.

Not sure about the price. I'd go $4 each just for the hand stitching, and $3.50 each for a set of 6.
