    100+ tissue covers later...............

    I've not counted the tissue covers yet-----------but I bet I'm getting close to 100. I keep finding more bits of fabric--------today did some Christmas, a couple Valentines, a couple flags.

    AND THEN found the zip lock bag where I had started some very simple gift baggies a couple years ago.

    I've got to get back to the quilt for a gal at church-----------she lost a leg in a motorcycle accident and I'm making a personal sized quilt for her. 80% done.

    Don't ask me about money, most of my stuff is given away! I have seen them on the net for $4-5 which is way too high in my opinion. Some gals said they were charging $2 which seems logical. I'm taking some to my club and will sell them for $1.25 with the quarter going to the club. THE FABRIC IS ALL SCRAP! I don't intend to get rich, but I am saving up for a lap-top so the cash will help. AND, I've got a couple chance auctions to donate to, as well as I've given some to family and friends so far.

    I did the easy tissue holder from QB last year for a craft show last year and sold about 15 at $1.50 ea. This year I will be doing the ones from the little shirt pattern. They are so cute but they will be more money so I will see how many I sell.

    $1.50 seems quite reasonable for the easy ones!

    Depends where you are. I think that $1.50 is away too low for anywhere these days. Don't undervalue your work. It takes time to cut, press, sew.

    Little shirt pattern????? Sounds interesting...is it a pattern you bought? if so where...is it hard or really time consuming to make. I do craft sales in fall and this might be of interest.
