Made by Mom: Would You Buy It?



  Tuesday, May 3, 2011 at 8:00 AM   |    Post a Comment     Tagged:, 
Hey girlies! I have a favor to ask of you all today.  As some of you may know my mom is a great sewer, she used to make tons of my clothes when I was little, she alters some of the clothes I get if they don't fit and she also makes TONS of quilts. Recently she has been getting into making bags, she started out making quilted bags as gifts and last month she made a bag out of felt.

What I want to know is, would you guys buy this if I set up a shop for her on etsy? If so, how much would you be willing to pay for it?  She would even be able to do custom bags if there was enough demand. It is made of felt, with some beads and felt flowers hand sewn on. It is also fully lined with 3 inner pockets so you can fit tons of your bag essentials inside.  It has wooden handles with a snap closure. Click the photos to see the images larger.

My mom was a bit nervous about me posting this, but I think that its great and people would be interested in buying them, as well as other things she has sewn. So yea...haha...what do you think?!

  4. I think the bag is adorable, though i probably wouldn't buy it to use as a purse.

    If it were larger, tote sized and perhaps made of canvas with felt accents I would be much more likely to buy it.

    But that is just me, I'm really a leather bag kinda girl - i'm sure there would be tons of people who would adore it, because the design is super pretty and the craftsmanship looks impeccable.

  5. Cute! She is clearly very talented. It's not my personal style, but I have no doubt that other people would be interested in buying them!

  6. This is SO cute. I actually really like the inside pattern of the bag. If your mom made that into those tiny cross body bags that are in this season (like this: http://canada.forever21.com/product.asp?catalog_name=FOREVER21&category_name=acc_handbags&product_id=1070220533&Page=1 )and added her own touches to it (maybe add some embroidery over the flowers with thread in those colour, kinda making it stand out if this makes sense? haha); I would definitely go crazy and buy one or two (for me and a friend!).

    So beautiful! I can't wait to see some more bagss! :) Pricing wise, i honestly thing it depends on how long it took her to make it and what she had to buy to make it. If it's a small purse like I suggested- probably 15-20 dollars? A bigger bag like this could go for 20-25 dollars?

  13. i think you should definitely set up an etsy shop... one thing i do before i start to sell a new design is research to see if similar things are selling... so i think you should go to etsy and take a look around... it would give you an idea of price range, etc :) good luck!

  17. I think it's pretty cute for a fun, casual tote. And Etsy is a great way to find a niche, I say you go for it. I think you could price them around $30-35.

    Let us know how it goes!

    xo, Ashley

  27. The craftsmanship looks impeccable! In Vancouver, I've seen handmade bags like this selling for around $60-$65. Given the work that must go into them, I'm not sure I'd sell them for less!
