    These are some of the aprons I've made to sell at our QFK fundraiser in Saline, MI in December.

    If anyone would suggest what is an appropriate price, I'd appreciate the input. I have no idea what to charge, but I want to sell them to make $$ for our QFK chapter. What I've put into them (labor & materials) isn't the issue, just want to sell as many as possible.

    Thanks for looking

    those are really pretty. I would say maybe 15-20.00 each if you want to sell them as quickly as possible.

    I've seen some like these for $30.00-$35.00. Depends on your market and the if the customers want to make a donation to a worthy cause. Some of them have alot of work on them.

    How nice these aprons are! I really love the first one with the cute pockets and cutaway yolk. Very very cute!
    I have seen aprons go from between 25.00 to 95.00. ( The ones that were $95 were in Los Angeles in a la te da shop) It all depends on what your market will bear and the amount of work that is in them.

    Darling Aprons ..... You did a fantastic job! If the goal is to sell as many as possible .... my thinking would be to price them $15 - $20 each ..... they would make 'GREAT' Christmas gifts.

    i'd say 1 and 3 could probably bring in a bit more cash if you find the right market, they are soooo awesome. well, they are all good. i just find those ones more girly and modern

    Your aprons are really cute and I think will sell...no problem. I would price them somewhere between $20-$25...closer to $25....if you think the market can handle that. Good Luck!

    These are beautiful! Really like the first one! Since this is for a fundraiser...could you ask for a minimum price of...(whatever you decide)...indicating that if someone wanted to give more for the worthy cause that that would be much appreciated? I think $25 as a minimum isn't too much to ask since it's for a worthy cause.

    I would think at least $20. You've put a lot of work in them not counting the fabric.

    I would say $20 easily

    How about making a tag on each saying
    FUNDRAISER TO SUPPORT QUILTS FOR KIDS
    MIMIMUM DONATION $20 . . . (or an amount you want)
    (Value of fabric $______ )

    By listing a dollar amount you have into the apron for fabric, the person *may be able* to use the difference as a tax deduction, if you're registered as a charitable organization. I'm not a tax person, but I believe this is how it works.

    Depending on your event - how about raffling them off. $1.00 a chance or $5.00 for six chances or $10 for 14. People involved can start selling chances now before the event. Make copies of the pictures to give to people selling the chances.
