First of all….those look VERY complicated to even think about doing. You are excellent at your craft. Those mitts should be worth about 80$ or more if someone were to purchase them.!!!
I do it all the time. Well, when someone asks me to knit something for them and then asks how much I would charge.
I had no problem coming up with a price for a crocheted item a friend of mine made for someone else. She asked me for my opinion and said with the time invested and cost of the yarn, I wouldn’t charge less than $35. And she did. And the person paid the price.
A friend commissioned me to make the Drinkers Mitts for her and I gave her a price. A very low price. It’s not high enough for the amount of work involved but I felt bad charging what I would charge a complete stranger.
Do you charge a flat fee? Do you use some type of formula to come up with a price? Or do you sell yourself short?
