I've got my sights set on being a wahm, I've already had a few orders for dolls nappies,and I am making fleece hats, tried one dolly sling, any other ideas for something that would be needed that I could make with fleece as I love working with this fabric? Also where's the best place to start advertising, preferably for free ?thankyou
Wow, £10 for a fleece hat, can't wait till I'm as well known as nippers, the hat on their site is almost the same as the one i'm planning to sell for £4,50 a time. I could easily adapt my patterns to do matching dolls and childs hats and scarves. All my wares would need to be posted so cushions might be a bit heavy, thankyou for the idea though, please keep them coming !
bensmum3, you could always just make the cushion cover and get people to buy their own inners - there are lots of places where you can buy them in various sizes (thursday market in FW for one!!!) Or offer them for sale with or without inners
(have you ever spoken to the other 2 Bens' mums? )
I saw a pattern for a funny cute pair of fleece booties on a nappy making group on Yahoo. This is the link to the group
sew your own diapers.
It's in the files, but you have to join the group first. They're pretty much all Americans, but it's quite an informative group (if you're not already a member)
These booties were like two little pasties with a tie bit that went right around the ankle of the bootie and held it on.
If you can't find the files I could forward them on to you?
Wow, some great ideas here, I've just finished another couple of hats and put 2 more nappies in the post yesterday, I'am away tommorrow for the weekend, but will be hard at work from Tuesday trying out some of these ideas.
look forward to your CAT Enid.
