It seems a lot of people these days (not referring to you @Von Jones, just quoting you because you mentioned cost of making) are unaware of how expensive the equipment and supplies are that are needed to create handcrafted goods. Many expect to purchase handmade items for the same as what they'd spend on a sweat shop product (or something machine produced) from a third world country, and don't even take into account the time to create designs, select specific materials, etc. Also, supplies cost quite a bit more here in the US/UK/Canada. @Ina I. Wonder I think it's great that you are able to make and donate them, and I think they'll be very much appreciated by the vets. I can't wait to see your progress!
