So I eventually find something wrong with every purse i make for myself.

This is the newest addition of the collection. I like this one because it has a pocket for everything specifically.
A pocket for pens, camera, pda, cell phone, and keys... everything else just floats in the bottom.

I also notice that the more purses i make the bigger they seem to get. I think i just draw stuff in there.

I like to have stuff to keep me occupied if im out and get bored. A friend of mine said i reminded her of the girl in  the breakfast club who just dumped all the stuff in her purse out on the table. Well, yea i've done that before to break up the silence at a dull moment or two.

Without further ado, the pictures!

I think 20$ is low, but I have never sold anything in etsy so I don't know what comparable things go for. Just judging by how long it would take me to make that, it seems low. For a big purse like that with all the pockets, I would say at least 30$.

id say... from start to finish it was probably right at 2 hours. That was drawing the pattern and everything.

Fabric was $1 yard deal at walmart... im out now, wish i had bought more of both the exterior and interior.

I wish i could find great fabrics like i see in lost of other peoples shops, but i have no clue where tehy get them, and it kills me to pay more than a few dollars a yard for fabric.

That was about my guess on the time, but I was estimating more for materials. $1 a yard is a great deal for that cute fabric! But I don't think you should pay yourself less than $10 an hour on labor so I still think $25-30 is a very fair price for it. Maybe the people who sell things will have a better idea. Do alot of people low-ball their prices on etsy? That can make it hard for the ones who want to pay themselves a living wage on their own labor.

not that i try to low ball, i just enjoy doing it alot and i just dont want to cheat anyone.

plus im a cheapskate myself and never pay full retail for anything, so i assume other people are poor college folks like me and need a deal, lol.

I'm in awe of all of you who are so fast sewing bags and other things. It would take me at least two hours to draw a pattern and to cut out the fabric,then at least 3 hours more to sew it together. I guess I can never hope to make stuff to sell. Undecided I think your bag looks great and it will sell fast at $20.

Oh I never like to pay full retail either in stores, but mass produced stuff is a whole nother ballgame. For handmade stuff I expect to pay more and I don't think 10$ an hour for your time is cheating anyone, you can barely live on that here! Don't cheat youself either. People who just want the cheapest price will go to wallmart, but people who want something unique I *think* will be willing to pay for it. Maybe I am unrealistic though- I have never sold anything!

etsy's commission is hardly anything though, Maybe $1 on a $25 bag.  I think 25 is a good deal, I personally am low-balling it on my etsy shop for now, at least until I gain more confidence from buyers.
