Project Cost Sheet





Here is the cost sheet that I talked about on the Dollmakers List; this sheet can be modified to meet your particular needs. As I said, there is definitely a lot of work involved in keeping track of this information; however, you must know your costs to determine if you are pricing your dolls appropriately.
If you have any questions, please feel free to email me.


COST SHEET INFORMATION

(1) Each item I make is given an inventory number upon completion


(2) Each store receipt generally has a SKU # for each item; if there is no SKU #, I make up a number which I use every time I buy that item.

(3) I like to put a check mark in whichever column applies - either I bought the item on sale or paid full price. That way if I see that most of the items were purchased on sale, I can adjust my selling price if I feel that the chances are great that I would not be able to get the sale again. However some items are usually on sale and I stock up on the item when they are.

Every time I make a purchase, I mark the package with the price and circle the SKU # if it printed on the package or write the SKU # on the package. All my material is marked in price per inch; when I list my material used, I put it down in inches.
