all of them

Some favorites:







I have been hand sewing these for about a while, and was wondering if they are etsy worthy, and if so, how much should they cost?
Any advice in this area would be greatly appreciated!

Cuteness! I dig pincushions even though I already have too many, and I especially like really brightly colored ones like these. In my personal experience, Etsy is pretty overloaded with things like pincushions, so to sell them you have to make them really stand out. Try finding a niche that isn't being filled with these, like pincushions shaped like dinosaurs etc... or maybe use some really odd fabric like coffee bean bags or something. Its the odd stuff that sets products apart and makes it more likely to sell.

If you are really nervous about selling on Etsy in general, set these at a couple of dollars just to get the ball rolling, and see what happens from there.

Thank you very much for your advice. I think that I will now go and make a dinosaur. Smiley

i agree with rangerbeth.
your pincushions are adorable, but i think something different will definitely set you apart.
try some stars, or characters with faces, cute little things and weird things. (even hearts, skulls and four leaf clovers would be neat!)

good luck!

Thank you for more ideas. I will be making more fun shaped ones super soon. I think that pics will follow, because I like this posting pictures. (this is my first post with pics.)
