Things To Make And Sell For Money: Making Doll Clothes Is A Great Way to Make Extra Money From Home

Something that is great to make and sell for extra money is doll clothes. What little girl does not love beautiful doll clothes to dress their beautiful dolls in. Your imagination is the limit. Little girls around the world will love the little creations that you bring. Not to mention the joy and reward you can gain from this wonderful niche market.

Doll clothes making can truly be addicting (a good addiction for sure). With so many different types of patterns and styles out there you have no worry of running out of ideas. Search online for “doll clothes patterns” and there should be a host of sites that come up. Don’t be afraid to venture out of the normal/usual styles that you like or your comfort zone. Tastes and styles are many and varying out there. The ones that you think are not very popular may just be the ones that sell the most. So let your guard down and go for it.

Quality will be very important in this market. If the doll clothes you make are not up to par, you will see that reflected in your bottom line. Your customers will not always let you know that they are not satisfied, they will simply not buy anymore of your product and they surely will not recommend your doll clothes to any of their fellow doll lovers. Make sure that you do put the time and effort into what you are doing. Detail is everything when it comes to doll clothes. Just as in “real people” clothes, poor quality is a no-no. No matter how good the price is, quality is what is most important. Show that you care, put some effort into it. It will pay off in the end.

With this in mind, you will need to invest in a good sewing machine, if you do not already have one. A baby lock machine (a type of sewing machine) also will come in handy for those finishing touches. Make sure that you have all the tools readily available to you as you work on each individual project. You do not want to have to look for items you need or have to stop in the middle of a good rhythm to get up to get an item you need. That should all be within reach to you. Make sure that you are in a location that will allow you to concentrate. No disturbances from family or pets if possible so that you can make sure to give the attention needed to your work. The lighting in your work space should also be the best it can be.

All these factors are important to being successful at doll making. You will want this to be something you enjoy and can maintain for the long hall. Make sure that you set yourself up for success!
