Hello fellow crocheters! I have a question regarding selling homemade crochet items. I have a hard time pricing items for sale. I usually make things for free or just the cost of the yarn for friends and family and I have a hard time charging them for what I think the item is worth. I have checked out etsy and other sites where people sell homemade crochet items so I have an idea of what people charge but often items are undercharged. For example, it could cost approximately $70 for the yarn to make a blanket and it takes many, many hours to make. I would think that the cost of the blanket should be at least $125- $150 but not a lot of people seem to want to pay that for a blanket from comments I am hearing. I am making a hat and a scarf for a friend right now and I am only charging for the yarn which cost almost $20 but I have had a few comments that they could buy a hat and scarf from a store for less. I agree that is true but it wouldn’t be handmade or the same quality. I tried explaining that I use a more expensive yarn to achieve a nice quality but I feel like they think I am just overcharging, yet I am not making anything on it. How do you deal with pricing your items and those comments? I feel bad to charge a lot for anything I make but I am almost always only getting the money for the yarn if I do charge.
