I am having a bit of a dilemma that I need some input on. Now that spring is approaching and the need to change out some fabrics is coming on like a freight train, I have been searching for some fun new patterns to use for Nanny Goat. There are plenty of great new ones and even some old goodies……..but there are also some really, super-duper, totally butt kicking fabrics that are nearly double the price of what I regularly use.
The problem is that I sell pillow covers that are affordable. That is why I sell them. The whole purpose I started selling them. I don’t want to go up in price. But on the other hand, there are some really great fabrics that many people might want to have(including me). So this is what I need an opinion on, do I get them and sell limited quantities at the regular cover price so that it is somewhat absorbed by my other sales(I don’t do it to make billions of dollars)? Do I use the fabrics only on the front of the pillow with a coordinating color on the back to keep cost down? Do I sell certain fabrics for a little more? If I do that, then does it seem like I have tricked you with my great deals and now the fabric that you love is the “higher end” fabric, of course?? I bought some of these fabrics anyway because I wanted to sew a few covers out of them and because I totally LOVE them(and it’s almost Valentines so love matters:) I just can’t decide how to go about this.
On a side note…..I have long thought about making some crib/toddler bed sheets. Not a ton of them but there are so many super fun fabrics that are perfect for sheets. And how many times did I wish for sassy bedding for my girls?! So I think I will venture down that road a little. We’ll see after the first one is made, but aren’t these two patterns/colors way cool?? Please, let me know what you think. Should I or shouldn’t I, should I or shouldn’t I……………………….. Kiersten
