Crochet with plastic bags? Pretty thrifty! What a great idea. Smiley
2  CRAFTY BUSINESS ADVICE / Get Product and Website Opinions / Beautiful coathangers for lovely ladies on: July 26, 2009 04:19:33 AM
Hello everyone!

I'm extremely new to the crafting world although i feel i'm already addicted! I'm an illustration student and need to make some cash ( ah i'm such a cliche! ) and although my prints sell nicely in a few shops i wanted to make something more practical aswell as something nice to look at! And so...these coathangers are born! I've only done 4 so far and haven't tried to sell any of them yet. I would dearly appreciate your professional opinions in the matter. I absolutely love them so if they don't sell i'll have a wonderful looking wardrobe with or without clothes! Haha  Grin
They take quite a while to make and design so i'm a bit concerned about actually pricing themas it may hit the 15-20 mark which could put buyers off. I'm thinking about doing some quickly with stamps and paint and sell them cheaply and then do the more detailed, unique ones at a higher price. Sound good?

I apologise for the photo quality, i need to redo them but i was so excited that i wanted to show people!

I have more detailed photos of the design but i didn't want to totally spam my first post with pictures!  Cheesy

Oooh i'm so jealous!! Thankyou thankyou thankyou for the inspiration! I'm currently sorting my work area out and this was just the visual inspiration i needed! I've always loved the picture washing line idea. Cheesy

Very nice, i'm loving the colour scheme, that only word i can come up with is refreshing which i know is a kinda odd to describe a bedroom! My favourite item has got to be the lamp!

I've only just signed up and i'm quite looking forward to networking with other people there aswell as ridding myself of a load of items hopefully!
I also need a loooad of wooden coathangers but i'm hesitant to ask since they don't like people using it for commercial gain and i'd like to use them in my art to sell. I've read the rules and know that if you explain what you want them for and both parties accept it then its allowed but i'm still nervous about it, i don't want to get banned before i've even begun!

I'm looking into other places to get the hangers, if i can avoid asking freecycle for them then i'll be alot happier! Cheesy

Have you guys heard any horror stories about people using the sites? I'd like to be prepared for the worst ...

I'm currently studying in Derby! It'd be nice to meet up with some craftsters for tea and cake! Cheesy

I like the idea, its got a lovely quirky charm to it! I think they might appeal more with a stronger theme to each of them. So instance the plate you've posted has a flower theme, maybe try adding a few dried flowers to something. Or it could be a particular food? For me personally i'd prefer more ornate cutlery and maybe a fabric background, so the piece looks more like decoration. But then again i'm a sucker for anything ornate. I do like the colour of the background however, its got a very calming feel to it. Smiley
