Crochet/Amigurumi Sealife by Luherc Crochet/Amigurumi Sealife by Luherc
I accidentally got back into crochet and it's kinda eating up most of my drawing and painting time. I've made quite a few squids and octopi along with others not shown. The octopi are palm sized and the squids are about 12" including the tentacles. I plan on selling them at Animarathon! Unfortunately, these things aren't as cheap as stuffed animals to make. They require little in supplies, but plenty of time and hand cramps to make, and thus they tend to be more expensive. I'm probably going to sell the squids at 15$-20$ and the octopi at 10$. Thoughts?

About to upload a crap-load of amigurumi to my tumblr blog specifically for artisan crafts: ([link]) Check that out yo.

Just from someone who does and sells knit things for a living, don't undercharge. Check out Etsy's section on Amigurumi, that'll give you a good ballpark on what you should be charging! [link]

Thanks so much! Yeah, I figured 10$ for the octopi was reasonable on both ends, they're only 2" tall and take like 30-40 minutes to crochet. The squids are where I was still bouncing around on. I know when my Eeveelution amigurumi's are done, they'd be about 35$-40$.
