    I just finished this cute diaper bag for a customer. It is actually a modified bow tuck which I added a zippered pocket on the back and made it alot bigger. The fabric is Bugaboo which I bought a JoAnns.

    I am thinking about selling these and wondered if you all thought $60 would be too much to ask. it is 17" wide x 14" long x 5" deep. Handles are 10" tall.
    Thanks for looking!

    Good looking bag! Lots of features, and it looks well done. I wouldn’t go anything less than $60 for it.

    We sell patterns in our little fabric shop. Bear (my wife) made samples of some shopping bags (not diaper bags, but close to the same size) using TOL fabrics to give the “crafters” an example of what can be made from today’s fabrics, and hung them up in the shop as “samples”. Many, many customers just LOVED THEM when they were shown as samples and wanted to know how much they were (at that time, they were un-priced store samples). Finally, after all of the rave reviews, she calculated the time and materials to make them, and put a price of $75 on them. Boy! Did the rave reviews come to a screeching halt! Not a problem, but if they want it made for them by Bear, that’s what it will cost.

    Folks that don’t make handmade items generally don’t have a clue what it takes to make one. If they do, they’re probably here on the Quilting Board and know what it takes to make something like your bag.

    Very pretty fabric. I don't know anything about the price. If you want to make a little extra money they will have to be cheap enough for peple to pay it.

    It's beautiful!!! I've been making them too. I charge $50 for mine. If I make them 20" or bigger or monogram them, I charge $60.

    Where I live $75.00 seems good.
