View Full Version : Baby's 1st Christmas

05-09-2007, 03:12 PM
I have just made my very first Baby's 1st Christmas ornament. To be honest, I'm chuffed with it and I have decided to make a load more in different poses and colours............can I have some opinions please if you think they may do okay at a christmas craft fair?

Excellent, they will fly off your table at Christmas fairs - if only my two were younger well 14 years younger but there you go.

They're great; anyone who doesn't buy them is daft.

Good luck with the sales.

Ooohhh! They are lovely!

And I think they will sell well! What bout making them into tree decorations? Would that work?

Tree decorations one's are just around the corner! I've been making plans for those and have this new extra light clay that wont make the branches bend!

Will post some when I've made them.

:DOh wow that is FAB, soooooooooo cute!! Well done

thank you all so much for your encouragement, I will certainly now try and build up a good stock towards a christmas fair.........trouble is, I really don't know what to charge for it........I dont want to overcharge but at the same time if I have to do this to pay the bills, I don't want to charge where I don't cover my costs!!

Anybody any suggestions?

Pauline :pc:

How long did it take you?
It's seriously cute!

06-09-2007, 02:48 PM
I have not worked it out yet because I kind of did it inbetween other models on the table...but I think if I sat and just did one outright, it would be in the region of about 40 min to an hour, and then there is the 35 mins cooking time on top, the 10 mins to coat it once its cooled!

I will have to time myself next time I make one!

Just to let you see the picture of the second one I've finished. I have broke from traditional christmas colours and gone for wine and white.......have a pink one half done and next on my list is a blue and white.

Wanted to see if there is a market out there, so have put them on EBay. I've not used Ebay for months now so lets see what happens!

I think it's fab and the price you've got it at was what I was thinking. Try them at the price and you can always reduce the price.

Don't use ebay as a judge though as to whether they are popular. I don't think I've sold any of my products through ebay.

Thanks for that JBJB! I was hoping it was the right price - its always hard to price something new!

As you say though, I wont judge them by EBay, because to be honest, I'm not too keen on it myself, just wanted to see if they would go down............think they are going to better shown in the flesh <so to speak> at craft shows!
