I finished it a like 2 weeks ago, but completely forgot to post.

It looks sort of weird on my Eeyore plushie, but really cute once worn (I'd modeled it myself, but I've been awake for more than 14 hours today, and I don't look really model-like right now!)

I've been thinking of opening an Etsy shop and sell my stuff for a while now.
Do you think hats like this would be marketable? I was thinking around $7/8, $10 max (shipping included), in many colors, I'm lucky enough to be able to get good fabric for a low price. And probably some crocheted one (same pattern, only crocheted).

very cute Grin
yes it think these are sellable, but the price seems a bit low. consider the cost of your materials as well as how long it took you to make, say 2 hours you need to pay yourself a reasonable wage at least 7 or 8 dollars an hour. i would think you could get at least 15 dollars for one, maybe you should look around at other shops and see how much hats are selling for.

I agree: charge more!

As a point of reference, I got a tweed newsboy hat at Target fro 5.99 (pre-tax) but it was on CLEARANCE.  The original price was 11.99, and it's a mass-produced overseas thingy.

That's really adorable.. I've been thinking about getting a hat like that.  You could definitely sell them, and I think $15 is a good price.
