1  CRAFTY BUSINESS ADVICE / Crafty Business Discussion / Gifts for Crafting on: May 25, 2013 09:22:29 PM
Hi everyone! I've always been making things; jewelry, paintings, pillows, etc. I'm new to Craftster and I can't wait to start sharing all my work. I've stolen borrowed my mom's sewing machine and started making stuffed animals for friends. Recently I've been asked to sell some of my stuffed animals at a craft fair. I've decided for pricing I would just double/triple the price of the materials since I consider it fun to make the animals and my 'working hours' are so spastic some similar items would be the same price.
The animals range from 6" to 18", they are not incredibly detailed. Mostly monsters that are a simple shapes then I add character with various features and appendages. (I'd post pictures, but I don't have enough posts yet. Sad )
Now my problem is that a friend of mine recently gave me all her scrap material (four laundry baskets full!) as a birthday present. Mostly small pieces which I can use for stuffing, but some are big enough to make an animal or add details to ones I've started. Since I haven't paid anything for these materials (and she won't let me repay her), how am I supposed to price free things? Any ideas or advice?
