Default Kufi cap questions!

Got my caps in- love em! Ok, so couple of ?'s. . .

-how much do you charge for them
-diff. in prices for flowers/bows/threaded w/ ribbon
-do you always make the bows/flowers interchangable? Or sew?
-if you thread w/ ribbon, how tight do you make it b/c you want to make sure it will still stretch to fit diff sizes??
-which style sells better for you. ..
-do you ever sell them by themselves(undecorated)?

Thanks so much!!

no answers?? Well, my first craft show is Oct.11 and I'd like to hear your opinions on my questions, if possible!

I looked through etsy, and kufi caps w/ interchangable flowers ranged from $10-$25...talk about a large range, huh? I was thinking maybe $15 for a cap w/ a large flower clippie, w/ rhinestone center? Does that sound about right? I'll post pics tom. Thanks!

Well, I just ordered my first batch of Kufi hats(BTW, love them). I have my first craft show in Nov. I planned on pricing them at $15.00. I think that if I saw them from someone else that I would spend that. What ages are you selling them for?

Well, this is my first time using them- got them from a recent group buy, and they seem larger, as in for toddler on up. . .so they aren't for infants. . .do you think that would make them more expensive? I also think $15 sounds good. . .I guess if they all sell out, then I'll up the price.

How do you plan on embellishing yours? Thanks for the reply, btw!

You're welcome. I am going to put embellished gerber daisies on clips on them. I am also gearing them towards toddlers and little girls , even up to teens. I have different hats for infants, the one that has a knot on the top. Good luck! I will give you feedback if/when I sell some. Could you do the same?

I have a question - does anyone know where I can find instructions on how to make flowers into clips as well as weaving the ribbon through the cap?

Thanks

As for the flower clips. . .I take the flower apart and get rid of all the plastic pieces. Then I stack the layers of pedals back the way they were and glue them together. I usually use a rhinestone as a center. Then attach to a lined clippie! HTH!

As for threading the caps w/ ribbon- haven't done that yet.

ManicMittens- when you thread do you just glue the end of ribbon together then put the bow/clippe over that seam? Thanks a bunch!

I've been charging $15 for mine for quite awhile and that seems to work out pretty well. HTH!
