How much...

would you pay for a "tie" blanket? I just made one for my SIL for my nephew due in December. It was much easier to make than I remembered. I might be able to make some extra money!

  • I also thought about selling them :) They are super cute, and everyone I know that has ever gotten one (from someone else, not me), has loved them. So I am going to make some for all the kids in the family at christmas using cute patterns they like, and see how well they go over. I found the fleece on sale for $5/yard which is great, and each blanket is 1.5-2 yards of fleece per side. I would start off selling to make a 25% profit and see if that works for you. I am looking into selling on Etsy but we'll see. Let me know if you get any good replies with suggestions or anything!

  • personally I wouldn't pay more than $20 for it since I know how to make it.

    BUT I know plenty of people would buy them at much higher price than that.

    I'd start at $40 and see if they sell.

  • The fabric I typically use runs about $7.00/yard. For this baby blanket I used 1 1/2 yards for each side so about $22.00 worth of fabric.
