11  Pricing for baby hats in Crafty Business Discussion by MopTopStumptown on: September 21, 2006 09:20:47 AM
I've been making baby hats for ages now.  Mostly I give them as gifts to my friends or family as they add to the family.  But people want to buy them and I'm trying to think of a fair price to ask.  I'm using the following calculation:

cost of material + labor (based on min. wage) = minimum price

Here's a basic hat in 100% egyptian cotton (modeled by my adorable nephew).  I can make 3 hats with 1 skein of this particular yarn and it takes about an hour and a half.  So, it'd be $1.75 +  $11.25 = $13.  I thought maybe I could sell it for $15... opinion?


And the merino wool ones that I'm being asked a price on look like this:  http://www.flickr.com/photos/moptopstumptown/249045044/in/photostream/
I can make 2 hats per skein of this particular yarn (80% brushed merino wool, 20% nylon) and it takes about an hour to complete.  So, this is at least $4 + $7.50 = $11.50.  Is $15 too much?  

Help, feedback?

Last year for my sister's birthday I made her a gorgeous dark blue scarf... but she didn't think it was soft of fluffy enough for her.... So. This year I made this for her: .  If she doesn't like it I'll kick her in the shins.
