On my way

I started making patterns for my quite book on the computer last week. Yesterday I cut out all the paper patterns. Today I've got most of the felt cut out and wording stitched. I'm getting very excited about the results. This picture is with the felt all layed out, but not stitched on. It will bring the pages to life once I add all the buttons, snaps, and stitches. My plan is to write an easy pattern for it and sell the pattern, a kit(with all the letters and wording), and also sell the whole book put together. On Etsy a similar pattern is selling for $21.50, a kit for an 8 page book for $11, and an 8 page book for $38. I can't find the kit or the completed book for a 26 page book. What are your thoughts on pricing?

If this sells well, I've got other plans for quite books.
Trucks
Farm
Zoo animals
Bible stories
Book of Mormon stories
Colors
Numbers
Textures
Weather
Time
Money
Reptiles
Holidays

I'm getting excited about it just writing about it.

Those are cute! I wouldn't know what to charge, but I'm sure you could get it for a good price!

You are so creative! I would totally buy one because I don't want to make it myself. You amaze me!
