When I started making stuffed animals, I had seen other makers creating their wonderful animals, bags and other items using wrap scrap. I had also seen their prices and their waiting list and was secretly hoping that I might one day be as successful as they were.
Well – to my surprise I have come to the point that my waiting list (in September 2020) is reaching all the way into June 2021! That requires a big THANK YOU to all of you who supported me and shared my creations everywhere. I love doing this and I’ll keep doing it as long as I can!
That said I may close the list for a while, because I don’t want to get too overwhelmed with a waiting list that reaches more than a year ahead. I haven’t decided yet, and who knows, maybe I won’t be getting any more inquiries for the next couple of months, allowing me to catch up a bit ;).
Regarding prices – well, I’ve had my share of ‘oh, that’s pretty expensive’ comments. And I understand that all too well. My lovely mom has referred a number of people to my website, but they were not babywearers and they were put off by the prices ;). I get that – why spend 30+ euros on something when you can get something similar at the store for half the price?
So I thought I’d maybe do another blog soon about what goes into the creation of a Tenshi Treasure. I realise that my work will stay exclusive to the babywearing world at this point but I’m fine with that – I feel at home there and ‘us babywearers’ know about the memories a piece of babywearing fabric can contain.
