Haha thank you. I know what you mean before I made my own yoshi I was looking for a pattern everywhere and oh.. well better if I give it a shot and it worked! xD I still don't know if I should sell the pattern or the finished product...
That's a tricky one. Are you already making amigurumi to sell? The way I see it is, people who can't crochet will be more likely to by the finished product, while people who can crochet will be more likely to buy the pattern. As a crocheter myself, I would never buy someone else's plush because I love the satisfaction of making it myself. I usually end up taking the risk and selling both the plush and the pattern (though I sell more patterns than plushes because I tend to underprice my plushes and tire myself out). Or you can just keep it yourself as a trophy of being awesome.
Lol! xD Yoshi has been my pride and joy xD! Well I've been selling the plushes amongst my friends and family and some other people but I haven't sold any patterns, I'm not sure how to price them. How do you do it? I guess that's why I haven't gotten around to start this business xD
Well I sell all of my things through Etsy. There's a small percentage (I think 3%) that Etsy takes from every sale, but it's really an easy site to use. I browse around and see what other people sell there patterns for. I think around $4.00 USD or $5.00 is pretty standard for a good pattern, while some extremely detailed ones are priced higher and simpler ones lower. It's good to browse around different websites and see what other people are doing!
