Crochet Artists, You Want HOW Much?
Ladies and gentlemen -- artists -- gather 'round, as we are going to discuss that hot-button topic nobody loves: How to price your crocheted goods. Aside from the obvious topics, such as materials cost, we will also be covering the subject of how you refer to your work, yourself, and your customers. It is my endeavor here to touch on all aspects of crochet creation, to enable you to accurately price your items and convey that the price is fair.
How do you, as a crocheter, define yourself? How do you refer to yourself to yourself and to others? Does it matter? Let me ass

To those who want pony plushes
I am a plush collector. I mainly own MLP plushes but hope to be expanding that. I'd love an Eleventh Doctor plush. Maybe a pokemon one. But that's not what this journal is about.
I've been seeing posts by plush makers about the rude comments they've been receiving on their prices. MagnaStorm has apparently been receiving ignorant comments on the cost of her life sized Pinkie Pie and Serenity-Sama has received rude comments at conventions. WhiteDove-Creations often has to put up with people questioning her prices too. I'm sure other plush makers have commenters making rude assumptions about the cost of their creations. This journal is addressed to the MLP community at large, specifically those wanting a pony plush.
Firstly there are plush makers at every price range. But you pay for what you get. The majority of well-known plush makers charge anywhere from USD$200-400 for a standard standing pony. You can of course get plushes for under $100. I've seen comments bemoaning

Red Panda Amigurumi Plush
Another little cutie to go with my panda and tanuki, here's a red panda! His little bamboo is a piece of wire wrapped with yarn and felt leaves glued on.

For those of you in Michigan, I'll be selling these at JAFAX from June 16th to the 18th this year as Moony's Plush Plaza, so come check out my table!

Tanuki Amigurumi Plush
Gosh, it's been a while since I put anything on here, haha. But I've been trying out new things and came up with this little tanuki friend! Isn't he cute? He's got a little jingle bell to ward off unfriendly spooks and a little leaf on his head.

So this was an interesting project, and took many hours. Figuring out how to do his neck fringe and still have the diamond open in the middle was a challenge. The mane and tail are just brushed out yarn, and the blue horn like thingies are needlefelted yarn fibers. All the yarn I used for this is 100% acrylic Red Heart brand, including the needlefelted fibers. I even added the details to the bottom of his little hooves. :la:

I don't see myself making another one of these anytime soon, if ever, so I'm selling it as an OOAK item in my etsy shop.
Check it out here! www.etsy.com/listing/472964623…

So, I know nobody probably even reads these, but for the few that might, I've been trying to find inspiration for new things to add to my shop. And I was thinking about things for the furries out there. My shop features crochet items, but I was thinking about expanding on that and featuring more yarn items, like tails made from yarn. But I wouldn't really know what would be considered a good price for something that apparently takes several days to complete and a lot of yarn.

I'd be taking commissions on things like this, too. So I guess if there is any interest, hit me up. Or if somebody has ideas for things that they would totally spend money on, for that matter. Because lately, I've been kind of discouraged by how hard it is to get attention and make sales for my "hobby jobby". So, yeah...comments much appreciated.

Hello! I hope you don't mind my posting on your page today! I'd like to invite you to a brand new group; Pop Culture Crochet. I'd love to make this group a hub for all things crochet with a pop culture spin and I think some of your items would find the perfect home there.
 :happybounce:  Please, help me get this group off the ground!

Your ponytas are so beautiful my fiance' even wants one.  Did you use felt for the flames or unraveled yarn?  If it's secret don't tell lol
