Among other things...such as pillows, purses, animals, and liknesses of people...and was wondering if anyone has suggestions as to how I should market them, if I decide to sell. Right now, I do detailed, custom jobs for myself, friends, and family, but I'm hoping to go public and create custom jobbies for the masses. I live in a college town and would prefer to not have to sew Greek symbols for all the local frat and sorority kids, but I'm willing to do it if I must. I've tried talking to local DIY-type shops but they haven't seemed too interested in softgoods. Help? Thanks!

In your area see if there are any craft faires. Try applying to be in them and then try selling there. That is how I started.

Another thing to do is to take pictures of your work and make little promo packs and shop your goods around, not just in your area, but hunt places down on the internet and mail/e-mail stuff off to them.

Give it a shot!

Got any pictures you could post of your creations?
