Default Fun day to get back in sewing

It been awhile since I been sewing due to back injury. Decided to kick myself in gear and make this purse and matching wallet. A friend wants to buy it. What to charge?

oh you did a great job!

i have no idea what to charge for stuff. i figure 2.5 times the price of materials, and then you end up usually in the expensive zone. but my time is worth it

That is a tough call when a friend wants to buy something. With really good friends, I would just charge for the fabric and an hour or so of labor. You might want to ask her what she thinks it is worth and take the lead from her. Friends don't always know what the cost of fabric and hours you put into the beautiful purse and wallet.
