Wow! He is just perfect! I'm really impressed.
You should make the little angry girl, next. Don't know what she's called in English but here in Sweden her name is Lilla My = tiny My. Smiley

Thank you for those links, I had already sold the bear when I read them unfortunately but I'm sure they'll be very usefull in the future. Smiley
In the end I got $85 for her but the look the buyer gave me when I told her the price made me believe it was much cheaper then she had expected, so I'll ask for more next time.
I really hope this part of the process will get easier with time. Undecided

Thanks again for your advices.

Thank you for all of your good calculations and nice comments Smiley

I'm going to add a big tag on the stomach with name and date as she is a gift for a baby girl how's getting baptised, I hope that will make the bear a little less of a toy. I just measured the bear and she is about 26 centimeters tall, so she is fairly big for an amigurumi.

Thesingingllamas - I only wish that this buyer was in the market for a specially ordered amigurumi Smiley , but since I live in Sweden most people have never heard that word and don't understand this "new big thing". Once I tried to explain what it is I do to a friend and about a week later he asked me how I was doing on the amibuchewinggums. Cheesy

Hello all of you lovely crafty people!
I've been working on a special order for awhile now and just finished it today, and now my new, least favourite part is here, pricing. I have never sold anything before and I now realised that I don't know how to price this girly bear. I don't want to feel like I'm not getting enough payed for my work but I don't want to feel like I'm robbing the buyer either. Undecided I'm sure some of you are dealing with the same problem and would really like to hear your thought on the matter. Smiley

Here's the bear. She took about 13 hours to make and the material cost was about $10

I'll be thankfull for any thoughts! Smiley

It's soooo great!  I want to make one!  How clear are the instructions in that book?  I don't know a lick of Japanese...would it still be possible for me to follow the instructions?  I ordered the book assuming I"d be able to follow, but now I'm worried...  I know how to crochet, is that enough???

Thank you!

I was very nervous when I spent the last of my money on a bunch of books from japan, I don't know a word of Japanese either, but when I received them I realized that I didn't have anything to worry about. The Amigurumi Collection-books are very easy to understand. You just have to know how to follow a chart and then it's the matter of figuring out what part you're making. It makes it all the more interesting when you have to guess what you're crocheting... Cheesy It's part of the charm I guess, although, I would really love to learn Japanese.

Thank you so much for all those nice words! I'm still kind of chocked that people here are soooo nice. Cheesy Seeing all crazy great projects here and reading all the nice and friendly things people write really makes me happy. I must say that Craftster is my favourite therapy. Wink

Moonoverbrooklyn- I hadn't crocheted anything in several years (10-15 maybe) when I found all of these amazing amigurumis on the net. I went to the library and borrowed some books since I didn't remember a thing about crocheting. The book Simple Crochet by Erika Knight was my favourite, it had good step by step pics and some fun projects for beginners. You should check it out! My first amigurumi was the very famous amineko Smiley It was a nice thing to start out with.

Wow! Those look soooo great. I just love the last one, the colors are amazing. I have never tried covering things with clay but this really inspired me. Is it hard to do?

Thank's you guys! Man you're fast at replying! Cheesy
Ambo- The little blue thingy is a mp3-player, but I think it's to small for him to controll, with the lack of fingers and all...  Smiley
Who is this Kipper-figure? Don't think we have him here in Sweden. I'll have to google him right away.

Just made some things to put in my new amigurumi's bag.
Here's the bag with the thingies...

and here are the thingies next to a match for scale.

Thingies are: cellphone, mp3-player, panda-mascot, wallet, lip balm, pen and notebook. The notebook is made of paper and the pen from a toothpick.
Here's the link to the giraffe if you want to look at it. Giraffy likes the stuff, altough they are a little small for him. Cheesy
