A friend of mine taught me Chinese Knotting just a couple days ago ... after a long while of being terribly confused, I managed to make a turtle keychain!

isn't it adorable! (both these pix are *ACTUAL* size)
 

"help me get up!"
 


**We're hoping to sell these to help pay for costumes, fans, props, etc. for a Chinese dance assembly @ our school ...so I need everyone's honest opinion--
1. Would you buy it?
2. How much should we sell them for?


Thanks a bundle!

That is so cute! I've always wanted to learn Chinese Knotting but it seems way too complicated. I would totally buy that but I really don't know about pricing.

super cute... i know you're going to be selling them, but if you're willing to, do you think you can post a tutorial? they're super cute.

i'd pay a minimum of $5 and a max of $10 for them

I hope you are not bored of heiring that your turtle is sweet because I'm going to say it again "It is best turtle I have ever seen".

Very cute.  Thinking of the price - how long did it take you to make?  That should be taken into account.

The turtle is adorable! great job!
About pricing: how long did it take you to make it?  I second the idea of something between 5-10 USD.  Maybe $5 for simple ones and then you can do some fancier ones, for example with some embellisments like adding some beads to the turtle or so, maybe even with a pin back and sell those ones for 8-10?
