(Cricut) Cat Lover Mugs

Since it is already August, I thought I had better start thinking about not only Christmas, but also the Christmas craft sale my mother-in-law has every year. I plan on making items to sell with both the Cricut and my Embroidery Sewing machine…. and all Cat/Cat Lover themed.

Again I found and downloaded these FREE patterns from www.lovesvg.com!

I loved how well the mugs below turned out. I have one of them running through my dishwasher right now to see if they are actually dishwasher safe like the permanent vinyl package stated.

I picked up these mugs at the dollar store. They were $1.25 each. I figured I used maybe 50 cents worth of permanent vinyl to make them, bringing me to a grand total of around $1.75 to make each one.

It took me about 25 – 40 minutes to download the designs, add the designs to my Cricut app, cut the vinyl and apply it to the mugs. Not too bad for that amount of time. I haven’t decided what I am going to price them at, but I think with what it cost me to make I have a pretty good profit margin.

My grand plan is to make items with both machines that will coordinate with each other to hopefully make multiple purchases of items that match!

I have so many ideas floating around in my head for both the craft sale and for Christmas itself to make and sell/gift. This weekend I plan to get one of my notebooks out and start to plan what I want to make, how many, who I want to make what for, pricing for items I want to sell and things like that. It will be nice to not only gift these items I am making, but to also make a few bucks selling them!

If anyone has any advice, suggestions or anything else regarding selling homemade items, please fill me in. It has been a long time since I made anything to sell!

(I am also thinking about trying to design and cut leather to make jewelry, again as gifts and possible to sell!
