Crocheted baby bonnets seem to go for $15-$30 on etsy, so that’s likely the range to consider. It can’t be both a 0-6month/old hat and a bridesmaid hat though… Unless of course it comes in multiple sizes.

It’s not a bad hat, but I think for it to be sellable, there needs to be more to it. It looks quite thin and delicate, like it’s too fragile to wear, and it looks homemade rather than handmade, not sure if I am explaining it right. A tighter weave, perhaps with some small embellishments (crocheted flowers or bows perhaps, or a more distinct pattern) along with a heavier grade if yarn might produce a hat with wider commercial appeal.

Whiteway:  I actually have no idea, like I said, I’m not religious so I’m not particularly clear on the practice of christenings.  I just thought that the hat looked very appropriate for the fancy gowns I’ve seen for these types of events.

Whiteway:  For the hat.  Babies spit up on things – I just don’t think you can charge more than $5 for an impractical hat that is going to get dirty in five seconds and doesn’t actually cover the baby’s head from the sun.

Whiteway:  If you knew they were between $15-$30 why would you make a post? This confuses me. 

I wouldn’t buy one of those for any of the babies in my life. I think they are out dated and kind of silly looking. Are you trying to make these and sell them? I think the market will be very small.
