So, here is what I got done over my weekend!  I made a sample of the pillows I want to make.  I have only used pins to put on the flowers so I can play with the designs I can make.  I still think it’d be a good idea to do coordinating, simpler pillows that use the same fabrics/colors, so that I could sell sets.  I’m not sure what a good price range would be for these.  It seems most pillows on etsy are in the $25-35 range.  What are your thoughts?

So, when I was up in the middle of the night thinking of random things instead of trying to get back to sleep, I was thinking about our theory that you should have a range of prices for your products on etsy.  I think what I might do is have the fancier pillows, and then have coordinating pillows that have matching solids/patterns but are much quicker to producer.  Then I can sell the coordinating pillows alone (lower price), the fancier pillows (moderate price), and then sell them as sets (higher price).  So, if someone was looking for cute accent pillow for their couch, they could buy say, one of the more intricate ones and two matching coordinates.  Thoughts?
