I spent time last night piecing together some of my hoarded fabric for this brilliant idea I have for a patchwork totebag. I guess I just need to get over the idea that if I sell this at a reasonable price point for me, it will cost $150, and if I price it with the intention of actually selling it, I will get paid $5 per hour, less if you include materials.
Ah, the joys of being a hand-crafter. Oh well. Maybe I'll just put it in my etsy shop at the price i want and see what happens. Sometimes you have to price things higher to get them respected. I know that if I see an item on etsy that I know took forever to make, and the seller is charging a pittance, I wonder what's wrong with it.
I hope to have some significant time to craft this weekend, although it's already stacking up to be super busy. And my kitchen floor really needs to be scrubbed. I mean really. Maybe that's what I'll do on my oh-so-exciting Friday night.
