I'm working on a bunch of these to go to my sister's husband and his troop in Iraq. No, I'm not taking orders for any others. I really don't think I can do them this year, mainly because I offered to give any extras I make to my sister's FRG to use as a fundraiser.
I want to use the remnant fabric to make some cute little stocking ornaments. Here is my prototype. I thought I would use a glitter gel pen to write "2008" on the cuff.
So, what do you think I should sell them for? Originally, I had thought $5. Now, looking at it, I think $3. If you saw them at a little kiosk and thought, "Hey, that's cute. I'd love to hang that on my tree. I wonder how much it is," what price would make you consider it, and at what point do you walk away?
And, you military wives out there, any suggestions for making it fancier? I could cut out tiny little velcro patches, but that would be tedious and nothing would fit on there anyway. A soldier could always pin his rank on there. Well, up to a one-star could. Two stars would be too big.
