  • gifts for little girls

    Just wanted your opinon on my idea. Thought I might make some knitted bags for little girls for christmas, but not sure if they would sell, what do you think about this idea. Thought I might make them in the furry wool and line them,

    I am sure they would be a great thing - saw some recently at a craft fair that someone had made. They were fab. You will have to do one and post a picture on here.

      I think that if you made them nice and girly, then they would probably sell well, but you'd have to watch that your pricing wasn't too high.

        Put a card in there with Lucy Locket printed on it, and include a crocheted necklace with a locket??? Or just attach a little locket on the strap?

          Great idea! Little girls love trinkets and charms - they won't be able to resist

            I think they woudl sell. My daughters friend (age 6) went to a fair recently and bought a knitted bag and its never been off her back! Its one of those cross over the body ones and its knitted in really chunky multi coloured wool. It had a toggle fastening. She just loves it!!!

              gifts for little girls.

              thank you for all the positive feedback I have received. I will finish the scarves I have been knitting and will trythis out and see what happens. One more question what is the best place to sell them as I do not have a shop or website to display them. had a look at a website but found some very expensive can you help me.

                They'll be a hit

                Hi Ellen

                I'm sure they'd be a hit with any little girl; and the idea of putting a locket or something inside them is excellent.

                Let me know how you go on.

                    I am sure they would sell, my little grand daughter of 6 has a girlie bag she takes everywhere with her, likes to keep her special things in it

                        I think you need to have over 30 posts to be able to upload photos so you should be able to upload now. I use photobucket.
                        Or, you can upload photos into your album within the forum.

                          Great idea. Girly stuff seems to sell well, and little girls love little bags!!

                          Where to sell? The more outlets you have, the better. They feed each other, if you see what I mean. Craft fairs (especially in the run-up to xmas).

                          You can sell from a blog, which is free, if you put a paypal button on it (easy to do) and all you pay is the commission to paypal. Don't forget to set a postage rate on paypal.

                          You can also sell from a site like etsy, misi, etc.

                          Are there any small shops near you which may take some off you?

                          School fairs may be a good one for you. Primary schools all have Christmas fairs, and may let you have a table for a percentage of takings, or a small fee.

                          And don't forget to post a pic on here. We'd all love to see it, and someone off here may even want to buy one!!

                          Good luck!!

                              Gifts for Little Girls

                              At last I have managed to upload a photo of my bags for little girls also ideal for a flower girl

                              I thought they may sell for £7 each or am I being optimistic
