    Cushion love..

    30/06/2010

    I showed my friends on facebook, twitter and at work my cushion that I made (as shown in my last post) and I had several ladies saying that they would love to buy a handmade cushion or quilt from me…so obviously this has got me thinking…. The fabric I used was quite expensive as it was Cath Kidston fabric and worked out at about £18 all in…Do you think that £25 per cushion is a bit too much to pay? Personally I think it is but would need to make some sort of profit from them in order to cover all my costs (electric and materials etc)..What are your thoughts? I’d love to hear from you {sig}
