So, I'm planning on opening up an etsy shop to sell fandom quilts. Or at least that's the hope. There's a few things I need to work out first. First of all, what's the legality of selling fandom quilts on Etsy, if anyone knows? I sort of recall that selling fanworks is sort of a grey area, with it being easier to sell stuff that's obviously a new creative work that isn't infringing on the company's profits. (For example: selling Pokemon knitwear, probably fine and Nintendo won't care. Selling fanart is iffier.) I mostly just don't want to get my shop shut down or get fined or anything, and since some of the stuff I'm considering is Harry Potter fan quilts, I really don't want to get sued. Second, what should I know about setting up an etsy shop? Is it even the best venue for selling quilts? Should I have a redbubble or something? Should I set up a whole website of my own, to sell from? Third, how do I go about advertising my wares, once I have stuff to sell? Fourth, what's a reasonable price to set for these? I've got a few patterns figured out, and the first one I'm thinking of doing is a Four Card Trick quilt as part of what could be a whole line of Weasley quilts (since that'd be easy to do several of). I could get a few fat quarters, maybe do some embroidery on the cards to make them look like they're sparking ("Exploding Snap Quilt") and make a whole quilt. I don't know how long it'll take me, since this would be the first time I'm making a quilt from scratch on my own; I do have a sewing machine and a walking foot for it. Fifth, if anyone has suggestions for this: how big should I limit myself to? Should I not make anything bigger than a bedspread for a double bed, if it's for sale? Should I limit it to queen-sized beds? (I am absolutely not doing king-sized beds unless specifically commissioned for it, those fuckers are stupidly huge.) Should I go with baby-sized quilts intended for hanging on the wall?
