Last weekend I finished knitting, washing and generally preparing for sale three sweaters for Ball Jointed Dolls SD13 girl sizes. This is the beginning of my shop content knitted from 6 balls of each 50 gram of Debbie Bliss merino lace wool. The knitting is very fine but fortunately I can do it while listening to audiobooks purchased on Audible.co.uk.
this is one of my favourite pastimes in winter, sitting knitting creating gorgeous wooly’s and listening to a story.
Will they sell?
I find myself wondering of course if my carefully created jumpers will sell on Etsy and possibly on eBay. I spend so much time and energy creating these and also I want other BJD doll lovers to enjoy my creations.
I checked what other BJD wool sweaters sellers have in their Etsy shop and they are quite different from mine. The wool that I use is finer and there are more stitches to the centimeter in my creations. Also I make jumpers that are tight fitting to the dolls body, the kind of jumper that young women would wear themselves.
Proportionally Knit Sweaters
The jumpers, sweaters or pullovers that I knit have stitches that are proportional to the doll’s size, in the real scale of things the stitch is a similar size to a double knit for a human adult. I need to sell my jumpers with that in mind and promote their scaled down feature as an important sale pitch.
My son-in-law gave me that idea to promote them from that point of view.
Between its colour scheme, tight fitting and proportional stitches it makes for a very different product than is for sale now on Etsy. I wish to make my brand products recognizable on Etsy and I am sure I will realise that in the years to come.
