    potato bags

    HI everyone,

    I know not everyone likes them, but I have a friend at work who wanted some baked potato bags. Once I found the warm tater batting, I said I would and made sure everything I used was 100% cotton. I took them to her at work today, and someone saw them and wants some. How much would you charge? The friend paid me for some batting, and then I just used what I had in my stash. Good stash buster project. Anyway, I am not sure what to charge. She said she would even buy everything I need for them, and they only take a few minutes to whip out.
    Any help is appreciated.

    Thanks

    Kathy

    I see them on etsy for anywhere from $5 to $10. Make sure you charge enough to cover your materials and labor.

    $8-10 sounds fair...

    or $5-6 for just your time if they buy all the materials

    I've made 32 of them but have used them for gifts. I got the tater batting and hit my stash. I typed the baking instructions from the batting bag and enclosed it with the bag. They are fun and I love mine ♥

    my MIL made a ton of these- she passed away in 2009 - I know some on the QB stated they had issues with them causing fires.. Moms baking bags are still going strong and these were made before the tater batting came out... I recently located a stash of her last 10 she ever made... I love them..

    $5-$6 is the price I've seen at craft shows, and at an Amish Craft store.
