How much should I charge? NikkiLeAnne 4 kids; Illinois 3589 posts

I made one of those messy bun/pony tail hats and all my friends on Facebook are freaking out wanting me to make one for them. I was thinking $15 and if I have to ship it $20. Does that sound fair For an adult size crocheted hat? I don't really know.

What's the cost of materials and how long do they take to make?

two days. And yarn here is like $3. I was comparing prices with other places I've seen selling them and some places are selling them for $30 so I thought $15 was a good price.

Exclamation I do think $15 is very reasonable.

Exclamation Don't underprice yourself, if you're good. You might end up with a crapload of orders.  I'd start with $20 and drop to $15, like a New Year discount if people aren't buying them.

it takes you 48 hours to make a hat? 

You have to think of it as how many hours, does it take you 2 hours one day and 2 hours the next? that would be 4 hours labor.

I'm thinking of it as I'll be done in two days. But yes, about four hours all together.

If it takes more than a couple hours I'd up the price, if not, $15 sounds good.  just don't sell yourself too short.  I generally check out prices for similar items and stick about the same price on my work depending on the time I spend on it

I've seen them in facebook sell groups for $15-$20 each so I'd say it's fair.
