    I will be selling these at the Tymeless Hearts carnival this Sat.

    These are so fun to make. I used the tut from missouri star quilt company.

    Just a question for you. I have some that I have sold and I have some left over. I'm sending them to Lauren for a craft fair that is coming up quickly. She has no clue what price to sell them for. I sold them on Guam for $25/pair. I could get that price for them, but have no clue what to have her price them for here.

    I actually asked someone who works in retail and runs her own business about pricing them and she suggested $8.50 each or 2/$15.00. It really depends on the economy in her area. If you think about it takes over a yard of fabric to make these so $8.50 for one is a reasaonable price, especially with a yard costing $5.00 or more.

    These are beautiful. Very colorful. I am a vendor at about twenty craft shows per year and have also made pillow cases. If you don't mind me asking, how much do you charge per p illow case.

    Very pretty. You did a great job of putting fabrics together.

    As for pricing, you should get double the price of the fabric. Will they sell in your area for $10? $7.50 is really low for such nice work.

    Does your WalMart have more of the Gerbera Daisy fabric? I haven't seen that except in fleece for several years.

    Thank you everyone!

    Irishrose- honestly I don't know if WM still has it. I've been on a fabric diet so I've stayed away from the fab department. I have to go in there today so I will look and see if they still have it.

    Your pillow cases are absolutely adorable! You did such a great job coordinating the fabrics and I am sure these will be a big hit at the carnival craft show! Thanks for sharing!

    Love them :) I have some of the same fabrics GMTA!

    I sell mine for 10 each or 15 if embroidered. I just finished some for someone that sent me her own fabric. I just had to make them and embroider her son's name, so I only charged her 50 for 6. I"ll post a picture later
