    UMMMMM Might have to think about this. Thanks for the info. I usually sell most of the things I make for 3 X's the cost of the indegrediants and kind of adjust price with time and difficulty and if I like to make it. It usually ends up that I pay myself less than $1.00/ hr. but try to remember that making whatever has saved my from going to a head shrink. LOL. Then if I make a bunch of somethings and they don't sell within two years I end up donating them to worth causes.

    You are NOT alone in that.. I tried many many things and also paying myself like a $1 a product.. but I'm doing a bit better now. It takes a while before you cut a profit, but keep at it!! it WILL happen!!!!!!! I WILL find that niche that will bring in more $$$ !!! its a good thing my friends and family like my work, cause I have backups as gifts if things don't sell :) I have started a list of people and places to advertise through with minimal minimal expense... need that expense for possible more "ingredients" to make more!!! :)

    I think your teddy bear was much cuter than the one on that other website! If the people are willing to provide the material from baby items, that would cut down on expenses, but then you would also have stretchy, slinky, fuzzy and whatever other fabrics you would be forced to work with, too.

    I am in the process of making a large piece or 'crumb quilt material' and will be making some larger and softer bears than the little guy and will be making jointed arms and legs and maybe I will put in some squeekers left over from my fabric ball project. I just finished cleaning out my sewing room and discovered several boxes of scrapes and so I am having a ball revisiting materials I worked with over the last few years. I am glad I kept the scrapes. I tried to explain what i was doing to my DH, who is totally blind. He just doesn't get it. But he did feel a piece I was working on and just said "Gee" and then laughed. I told him I was saving a bunch of money by recycling and then he asked if that meant I didn't have to go to JoAnns. and I told him NO. I will still be using the nine patches but also use the scrapes.

    That's so funny that he wanted to know if you were still going to Joanns. Then much to his amazement I am guessing, your answer was no. LOL
