Selling Tori Ami...

Hey everyone, I want to open up my craft store on www.etsy.com soon. People have been expressing interest in buying Tori Ami and that has really encouraged me. I don't know if I would make the same doll over and over because that would be boring, so I was thinking of making different Tori dolls - like the previous Tori would be called Sessions Tori Ami. I could make Tori Ami's by different eras, photo shoots. Tori has such great iconic moments and there's so many different things I could choose from. I hope my ambition isn't too great tho, but I would like to give it a try. What do you guys think?

Also, I wanted feedback as to pricing. These do take some time to make, but I want it to be reasonable price for the customer as well as fair to me. I was thinking somewhere around the range of $40 to $50. Next time I make one, I'm going to count the hours I spend on it. It usually takes me a day to make one of these.

I think I will try and sell the crochet pattern for Sessions Tori Ami on etsy as well. I've never written an official pattern yet so I must do research on it. I might need a few pattern testers. I guess their incentive would be they would get the pattern for free. :)

Here is my Tori Amos amigurumi, otherwise known as Tori Ami. She took a while to make because I was working on her on and off, but I'm really satisfied the way she came out.

Height: 19 inces from head to foot. 12 inches, sitting up.
Outfit: from Sessions on West 54th. Altered to give her a dress and I also made it sleeveless.
Shoes: Black heels, because she wouldn't be Tori without fabulous shoes!
Mouth: She has two different mouths that can be attached by velcro. One cute looking heart mouth, and one for singing in her Tori demon mode.

Demon Tori. yessaid.
