    Quilted Wallet a big hit...but?

    Ever since I made my first quilted wallet, so many of my friends want one now...how much do I charge? I was thinking $5, but is that too little? It still takes a lot of time, as the fabric has to be quilted and the wallet is finished by binding it. It is so hard to charge for something that I love to do... anyone else have this problem?

    I would charge $10, you have fabric, velcro, time and quilting

    Very nice wallet! I think $5.00 is way too low...you cannot buy one for that amount and they are not hand made. I would go about $12.00. Better to start a little high and be able to come down.

    I agree with $10. It is low for all the work that goes into them but if they are for friends that's okay. You also want to charge enough that you don't end up having to sew wallets forever!

    Cute wallets. A company called Thirty One sells mass produced soft quilted wallets for $22.
