I make plush dolls by hand as gifts for people sometimes, and people often approach me asking if I can make one for them. Here’s a recent potential client.
Client: That doll is so cute, can you make me one for $20?
Me: Well, it took me 25 hours of work and is all done by hand so the lowest I could possibly go is $200, if you don’t want a fancy outfit. But I’d be willing to make another at that price.
Client: How about $35?
Me: You can have the felt and thread for that. The sewing will be $165 more.
Client: Okay, so like $50?
