Howdy y'all,

I'm looking about maybe getting some feedback, if you've got a minute.  I'm experimenting with the idea of selling stuffed animals, but it's an arena I've never tried before, so I wanted to run a design by some people.  Check out this one I made today:






So, yeah...you think people would be into that kind of stuff, if I maybe did up a few different varieties?  I was thinking real cheap, like under $10, and in a variety of sizes...I figured they'd make real good baby toys/pillows or something.

Oh, and please let me know if this comes off as too spammy; I don't usually approach stuff from a purely businesslike standpoint, so I feel kind of weird using words like "sell" and "$".

Thanks!!

If you are planning on selling them, I would consider either doing a little applique on the front or beefing up the embroidery. The face kinda fades into the fabric. At least from the pictures.
Add a bit more contrast and it might be a little more interesting.

It is a cute idea though, and a cute shape.

Ditto on the contrast. Additional applique-like something on the front yes, but not if you want to keep it $10.

It's a cute shape, one I've seen much of, so you'll have to differentiate yourself from the crowds somehow or be a pretty masterful marketeer.
