A really comfortable interjection to all which done it out to the Fuwa Fuwa : Soft Creations show.
We had the tiny extraordinary pieces…some of which have been still accessible in the online shop.
It’s infrequently the formidable thing to sell felted or plush pattern to the mainstream public. Many people do not assimilate the time as good as work concerned or the pattern process. For most, they do not see the disproportion in between these handmade equipment as good as something they competence see during K Mart. Which is the shame.
Just bargain which all the seams in the sold square have been painstakingly palm stitched instead of by machine…..should be sufficient for many to wish to squander an additional $20 upon something.
Let’s put it in perspective……a plush for the show…may take around 16-20 hours of sewing. Even if the pattern is comparatively simple. The some-more formidable the longer it would take, of course. At MINIMUM salary of $8 an hour, which would be $128 – $160. Just for labor. Add in cost of materials…and the artists contingency have the tiny to survive. That would have the object over $200 during the satisfactory price. Knowing this as good as seeking during the tiny of the pieces in the show..I cruise the single can right away see which many of the pattern is intensely affordable, even underpriced.
Keeping this in mind, greatfully demeanour during the extraordinary pieces in the webstore as good as cruise enjoying them in your homes..:)
