Re: Crochet Baby Doll - Thoughts Needed - New Pics Added

I appreciate all the feedback.

I can always make these babies or anything in my store out of just about any kind of yarn: wool, cotton, acrylic, etc. The main thing is I mostly get request for acrylic because people like to just toss the item in the wash and they are good to go. So most of the yarn I have is acrylic or acrylic blend.

Because of that, I would need to charge people for the skeins of cotton (or whatever other type) and it would make it more expensive. So let's say the baby is normally $20.00. If we use the cotton yarn instead and let's say I buy I Love This Cotton Yarn in two colors, I would have to charge for each color ($2.50 each) plus $5.00 for gas because I live 40 minutes from the nearest yarn store (yeah I'm out in the country). So definitely $30.00 for a basic cotton baby.

But like I said, if someone here is interested in a specific baby doll like that I can certainly do it for you and would be more than happy to!!!
