A drawstring bag ordered by a friend. I gave her one last Christmas and she wanted to order 6 more. Have not really sold before so not really sure what to charge. 😞. Hugs, Mary

If I make something for a friend, I only charge what the materials cost me. For anyone else, I triple the cost of materials. If the materials are cheap, but it takes me a very long time to make, I usually refuse to make it.

Thank you for your comment. Actually, I am not here for profit, just to get back my cost since I donate everything to a project where I come from. Hugs, Mary

The old guideline in sewing was triple the cost of your materials.

Thank you for your comment. I am not a professional and am only sewing as a hobby and sometimes, friends donate to my charitable project. Hugs, Mary

Thank you, Kim. Don't worry, I will let the buyer just give a price what she thinks is reasonable for her, I only sew for my piece of mind. Have sewn quite a few and forgot to take pictures. :( Hugs, Mary

Mary I love your fabric. Please may I suggest that you give a brief idea of where you are as I am in the UK so possibly my ideas are of no use. Just a hint of which bit of the world will be fine?

I think Mary is from Europe - maybe Germany possibly, not really sure on which country. This is according to my database names of all the Cuties, but I've got a ? next to her country name! Love Chris

Thank you for your comment, Moderator, I was probably just voicing out what I know will be difficult. Am not too worried about this, am just hoping to finish all these orders so that I can start with a memorial quilt for my Goddaughter who lost her father last Sept. to Colon cancer. Hugs, Mary
