    What to charge for a quilters caddy?

    I made a quilters caddy and an acquaintance said she'd like one for her daughter who sews. But I don't know what to charge. The inside bucket costs $2.75 and there is about 1/2 yard of fabric and 1/4 yard screening. Since I've gotten the bugs out of the pattern, I think it will take me a bit over an hour to make. What do you think of $15.00? Too much, too little?

    I think $15 or even $20 would be ok. I love it by the way.

    Add up your material costs ... add in your time @ $/hour.

    What's your per hour rate?

    And of course, are you wanting to make a profit?
    Then add that in too.

    Add at least 10.00-15.00 to your material cost since you said it took an hour.

    If you sold them for $15.00 I think they would sell pretty fast....at 20.00 I would have to think twice...but that is me...of course they are worth more..but for me I would have to think if I really need it if I pay for anything over 20.00

    Golly, you're probably gonna clear $3. Isn't that something. Can't make a profit because everything is so high. Barny

    Why not market it as the major retailers do.....at $19.95. Or $21.95. Or $26.95.
    They're awfully cute and useful!
