    A friend just dropped by and I showed her the pillow cases I had just made for Christmas gifts and she asked if I could make her a couple she said she would pay me for them. How much would you charge for a pillow case?

    It depends on how much you pay for a yard of fabric. I would figure about a yard and a half for the fabric and add a couple of dollars to that for your time.

    Local Quilt Shops here sell the kits for $15.00 plus pattern. The kit is for ONE pillow case.
    A lot pricey for me, when you consider the amount of fabric
    needed to make one pillow case. I can make several sets for $15.00
    This will give a suggested price.
    I like your color choices. Saw the other post.

    A couple of dollars for your time? Just remember minimum wage in the US is $7.25 an hour. If you're trying to break even and do a favor for friend, factor in all the costs, including your time. Chances are your buddy will be thrilled that you are willing to make them something custom and handmade and will want to compensate you for your time and talent.
