Postby fay » Sat Aug 27, 2011 7:24 am

after my quilt i made for Ava (dd) and the one i made for my friend 2 people have asked for them and 3 for the taggie i made!

was talking to hubby and thinking of making a few to sell but not sure how good i have to be to sell them to strangers bit worried they'll think there no good lol.

have any of you sold things you've made? do you have to have fire regs on things like blankets?

I'm pretty sure taggie blankets/toys are copyrighted, regardless of how you make them or what you call them, or who you sell them to. If you were going to sell to strangers then you'd want to look into public liability insurance, in case a child pulled off a bit of ribbon and choked or something (it probably never happens but you just never know!) I don't think there are any regulations around blankets, although I have a couple of market-stall purchased blankets that have a label saying they are not to be used on a sleeping child! Hopefully someone more helpfulthen me will come along :giggle:

If people have asked for them, then they obviously don't think they're 'no good'! :wink:
That's my thought anyway. Good luck!

I would steer clear of taggie type blankets/comforters due to the copyright issues. Taggie actively look for and request for people to report infringements.
Take a look at what you make and work out ow much it costs you in materials etc and then try work out how much you would have to sell them for in order to make it worth your while.

I agree with the others regarding taggies. I am not sure what the regulations are regarding blankets but all baby sleepwear needs to meet strict fire regulations so I'd assume it is the same for blankets.

I could have made a fortune when Sasha was small :giggle: She would go straight for the tags on any toy, and i ended up cutting them all off and stringing them onto a scrap of blanket for her as a comforter. Taggie wasn't invented then. If only eh :wink:

I would agree with steering clear of anything resembling their trademark though. They are extremely agressive in their stomping of anyone they perceive as treading on their toes :-?

Re the quilts/blankets. I think if you were to market them as decorative quilts rather than a cot blanket you'd be on safer ground. Your local Council Trading Standards service would be able to give you more advice.
