    $10 - $12.
    How long does it take to make one? I'm guessing more than an hour. For $4, figure at least $1 for materials. Do you really want to work for $3/ hour? I think baby sitters get more!

    Those are really cute. And you did a lovely job on them.

    $4 sounds like a steal...why not just give it to them. I really don't know what to tell you, but right off the top of my head I think at least $8 - $10 each. They're really pretty.

    They are really cute and I know they we not too easy and fast to make. Nothing less that $10.00 with the price of fabric now. Some times you can get rements cheaper but your fabric is special. Good luck.

    I agree with $12.00. Remember they take time to sew. I Made some quilted tote bags years ago for a co-worker. I charged her for the fabric. I later found out she was selling them, not gifting them. lesson learned for me! Isn't it terrible to have to be so cynical about everything these days. Now I charge for my time and if it is to much for someone, they don't have to buy.

    If they were a lawyer or beautician they would not work for free.

    Wow! Hard to believe that someone would actually do that. She must have thought that she had a sewing slave. Did you stop making them for her or increase the price?
