How Do You Calculate Amigurumi Cost

Fear not my fellow crochet enthusiasts, because we’ve got the scoop on how to calculate your amigurumi cost like a pro.

First things first, you need to determine your materials cost. This includes the cost of the yarn, stuffing, and any other materials you used to create your amigurumi. Don’t forget to factor in the cost of any embellishments, like buttons or beads.

Next, you need to calculate your labor cost. This is where things can get a little tricky. You need to determine how much time you spent creating your amigurumi and what your hourly rate is. Be honest with yourself about how long it took you to create your masterpiece

Now, add your materials cost and labor cost together. This is your total cost.

But wait, there’s more! You need to factor in your profit margin. After all, you’re not just creating amigurumi for fun; you’re also running a business. We recommend adding at least a 50% markup to your total cost to ensure you’re making a profit.

So, there you have it. Calculating amigurumi cost doesn’t have to be a daunting task. Just remember to factor in your materials cost, labor cost, and profit margin. And if all else fails, just charge what you think your amigurumi is worth. After all, it’s a work of art, and art is priceless.
