I have to agree with that. And if they don't want to pay that amount try to bargain with them, telling them them that YOU are putting your time and effort into them, and that you deserve this or that amount.

(BTW, I'm thinking that the oregon tote is huge?? )

I used to qualify by saying....Well, you know you can't REALLY put a price on anything hand made, so I charge X. Now I say, yeah, I can make that for you...it's 40.00 or what ever. On my yarnlandia blog(down the page a bit), is a tote that I made. WAY got jipped, my own fault, but what I learned from that, really made up for the amount of money I didn't get, so it sorta evened out.

I learned

a) if making something for someone else ALWAYS have a pattern, don't make it up as you go along
b)calculate yarn cost BEFORE giving a price.
c)try to have things to just sell....making "on demand" is HARD, because life gets in the way a lot for me, and if I don't have time, I dont' want them tapping their fingers waiting for it.
