I have had my eye on this hat since October of last year on Etsy. The hat still sits and sits problem is she wants 45.00 for the hat. Which mind you is not such a bad price but for me to buy it for a doll! Ok I know what most of you are thinking Cheryl has completely lost every single ounce of sanity that she once possessed. But I can't help it gosh just look at it. It has Miss Somebody written all over it. Now the most I have spent for a hat to place on a doll was *clears throat* 25.00 dollars. Ok ladies you can all get up from the floor now and stop laughing. This all goes to say I never cared what it cost to me to make a doll if that what it takes to make the spirit of that doll come alive for me.
Now I did contact the seller and asked her if she would consider negotiating the price with me and of course the answer was no.....sigh just think that hat has been sitting there since October. My question now to everyone is to what expense would you go to making a doll your dream? I had someone yesterday try to break it down to me that I am just give away dolls because I don't take in account the labor nor do I take in consideration how much money it cost to put the whole doll together. I just hate cutting corners, most of the fabric I use is reproduction colonial or civil war fabric which I spend anywhere between 8 - 11.00 a yard for which most of the skirts I use a yard in a half of fabric and around two yards for the dresses. Ok now let me stop rambling off I guess I am just a little down over a old Vintage Hat.
Peace and Blessings
