Pay It Forward and a favour

I wandered into Laura Janes blog Dressup Bears the other day and saw she was doing a "Pay It Forward" on her blog. So I signed up and thought I would combine it with a favour that I need to ask you...

The rules are as follows:

- Anyone with a blog can join.

- First 3 people to leave a comment on this post will receive a handmade gift from me. The comment MUST include how much you would pay for a cute bear and the same for a bunny and bib set seen here please quote the price in US$ or Japanese yen, this is not a bid I just want an idea on how much to charge for them.
Both bears and bunnies are made of soft fleece, the bears are about 17cm high and all are unique. Machine sewn and features are hand sewn.

- I will send your gift within 365 days.

- In return, you have to pay it forward by making the same promise on your blog. (you don't have to demand posters give you prices though, that is just a bit of personal research since I need to price the bears/bunnies before they go to the shop).


  1. Jojo- I discovered your blog a couple weeks ago and I think I've read almost every post.. :) I can't even remember now how I found it, but I'm looking into how to set up a Montessori environment for our daughter, and I've loved all your ideas!! THANK YOU for sharing them. Anyways, about the bunny/bib set and bears, I would ask $15-$20 for both. But I'm new to the handmade world so maybe that is too low. I just recently started a blog (new to the blog world too) that I haven't even posted on yet (although maybe today's the day) so I'm sure that doesn't qualify me for the pay it forward. :) But at any rate just wanted to thank you and give some input for your research. GOOD LUCK!

  2. count yourself as the first Pay It Forward recipient!
    can you email your address to me at
    montessori.swapshop AT gmail DOT com
    please put pay it forward in the title bar.
    good luck with the blog, it is addictive once you get going.

  3. I think I can handle this. I'm not sure what gift I can give away on my blog. I will have to brainstorm.
    I would pay $10-$12 for the bears...I came very close to paying $15 for a little tiny hand-felted-all-natural-wool-stuffed pony I saw at a shop around here, but I talked myself out of it. I am a thrifty shopper so I encourage you to round up.
    For the bib I might say $14.

  4. Hi Jo! I would like to be part of your pay it forward and just like trfloor I'd just started my blog. Hopefully the Pay it forward would be able to carry on from there. I am not too good with handmade stuffs but hey the 365 days dateline is very generous!
    For the pricing of bib+bear: $20-25 and bear S$15-20.

  5. Great, that makes three.
    Could you all send me an email at
    montessori.swapshop AT gmail DOT com
    with your name and mailing address and I will send you something in the next year.



Thank you!
