I went to a craft show yesterday and tried marking the price down to $14. I sold the most I've ever sold, so I guess that's my answer!

I'll be marking them down on the website too, altough they have to be a bit higher there to cover the etsy fees, paypal fees, fees, fees fees!! lol

thanks for the help.

The bag is so cute! Did you draw the skull yourself or get a pattern somewhere? Great job! Cheesy

Well, I have them listed as $20 each or 3 for $50, but I haven't sold any online, and I only sell them at craft fairs if someone absolutely freaks out about how much they love one. But lots of people comment on how cute they are. So if people like them but aren't buying them, I guess maybe I have them priced too high. I tried dropping the price to $15 at a couple of fairs, but still didn't sell many. I don't know what I'm doing wrong. This isn't very modest, I know, but I think all the stuff I make is so awesome, and my friends say they love it too, but I'm not doing a very good job of selling anything. I'm really trying to make enough money by selling stuff that I don't have to work a "normal" job (I know, so is everyone else!), and it's getting a little frustrating. I've been paying for advertising on sites like this one, Creepy Queen, Shop Handmade, etc. People are looking but not buying. Have any tips for me?

I live in Athens! Well, in Millfield, which is only about 10 minutes away. I would love to get involved in some group craftiness. Any suggestions? I, like everyone else, will shamelessly plug The Donkey, because the Donkey rocks!
15  SEWING IN GENERAL / Sewing in General: Discussion and Questions / Questions about applique and fabric paint or markers on: July 09, 2009 06:03:39 AM
Hello, everyone! I have a whole bag of cool skirts I got at the thrift store that I want to sew some skull appliques on, but I've never done an applique before. I bought a bunch of felt, but then I thought that might not be good to use because it might ball up in the wash. Has anyone done applique before? I tried searching for a tutorial and found a nice link to a video on YouTube, but the woman didn't discuss what kind of fabric to use and how to keep it from fraying. I've heard some people say to use Lite Steam a Seam, and some Wonder Under fusible webbing. Any thoughts?

Also, when you zigzag around the applique, do you want most of the thread to be over the applique with just a little bit on the background fabric, or try to get it exactly half and half?

Maybe I should try to find a book....

I'm also wanting to try fabric painting or markers, does anyone have a favorite brand or any tips before I start?

Thanks in advance for your help!

This is too funny.....you should do a whole line of these, with lots of different angry phrases and hang them all over your house, and then invite random strangers in for tea. A hidden camera would let us all enjoy their reactions.

This is so cute! I love the flannel deer. How do you keep the applique from unravelling at the edges? I want to try doing some appliques on skirts, but I'm afraid they'll fall apart after a few washes.
