And that's what stops me most days. I'm not a horribly creative person. I can use other people's ideas marvelously, and I'm pretty good at cutting corners on projects to make something easier. But I don't very often have an original idea of something to create.
And these are not original:
See that? That's my big idea. A washcloth. HOWEVER, this washcloth is made from upcycled onsies, hand embroidered, and trimmed with handmade bias tape.
This is a proto-type. I already have 3 things I would do differently to make it nicer. And I have four other sayings.
But the question is - would it sell?
So I put it out to you - Would you buy this? Let's say you have a friend having a baby and you want to get them something useful. Kids are messy, washcloths are useful. But it needs to be useful and handmade so that they know you put thought into it, so you head to etsy.
Out of the 58 results given by searching "washcloth" - would a set of, say, 5 of these, appeal to you? And what would you be willing to pay?
Let me know what you think. Brutal honesty is appreciated. :)
