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

Very nice! Love the girl ones. Stamping is a good idea if you're looking to offer a less expensive line. If you have any money to invest (I know, I know, investing is hard when your goal is to make cold hard cash!) you could draw up a few favorite things and send them out to http://www.polyclay.com/ready.htm and they'll make you a sheet of stamps. You cut them out and attach to your own block. $37 for a 9x7 sheet full of your custom art in stamp form.

For some reason I couldn't picture clothing on them simply because they're so gorgeous! I could see myself maybe hanging a scarf or something around it, or even just putting it on the wall.
