Do you think there would be a real market fir this. I made it firy sister in law, but she thought it was too cute to take apart to use the socks. I've thought about making more and selling them, think i have a chance?

    Definitely! That would be adorable for baby showers or hospital gifts when visiting the new baby.

    I think it would sell better in a baby themed 'vase'. Like maybe a bottle (for shower center pieces), or in a baby style box like you would find long stem roses in. but yes, its cute and I'm sure you could find a market.

     sounds perfect for a craft fair or bazaar if you can make a profit (  price -( cost+time)

    instead of a vase, maybe you could use a small blanket or baby shower-themed paper and present it like this:

    obviously, you'd be using socks.

    You could definitely try! I would use a different vase or wrap them in paper, but it is definitely a unique idea!

    Thank you. I had them in that vase and I thought it would be cute to bring them to the hospital in for my sis in law. That way they just looked like normal flowers lol.
    It would be cuter in a baby themed vase for showers though. Or even in the baby blanket idea. Then pretty much all pieces could be used.

    This is the one I gave to my sister in law. And a dr in the elevator told me he would buy them. :)

    That is really cute as a baby shower decoration but nothing beyong that for me. Before I read the description I thought it was meant for actual decoration and I just thought of an old ladies craft project that would collect a lot of dust!

    I think some people would like that but I honestly don't know how large the market would be considering that pack of socks maybe cost $5-8 and then your additional cost for the flowers, filling, vase, ect. To make a profit off that would just make the buyer be wasting their money.

    Im wondering how iseable the socks would be after you take them out cuz floral tape can be pretty gross. Its a super cute idea otherwise. I agree the cost issue could be hard to work around but I say give it a shot:)
