The only real suggestion I have is "don't under-price your product". Your friend should charge at least minimum wage for her time as well as the full cost of materials and P&P.

Seriously, so many people only consider the cost of materials and don't consider how long it took to make something. As a result, crafts such as knitting and quilting are very undervalued in our society and don't get the recognition (and $$) that they deserve.
