It's absolutely gorgeous. I don't have the faintest idea about the price, but it looks very proffesional and beautiful; I'd say expensive.

Your purse is beautiful!  I love any material that is 100% wool! Price wise: at least $40.  But depending on how long it took to sew on all the beads etc.  you could charge more.

I would charge for the materials, and pay yourself at least $5 per hour you spent on it.  It's a really nice bag, i would pay, at the very least for it, $25 but you can afford to go up from there because it looks really nice.

I think some crafters sell themselves short.  Quality (and confidence in your work) counts for a lot.  If the craftstmanship is good (meaning, good sewing skills), and it appears to be, I wouldn't charge any less than $55.  Its a unique piece, with quality materials, and is artistic - also hand-beaded.  Do you have a shop?  If you do, and your other pieces are a lot less expensive, you'll have a harder time selling it for this price.  BUT, if you have confidence in your talent, and can stand behind your work, and if all of your pieces are this good, then I say you should put a true "art/boutique" price on it.

Sorry for rambling...

I usually add the cost of my supplies and double that to get my price.  However, I have never done any handsewing or beading.  So I would increase that by about at least $15.00 for the handbeading and sewing.

wow, and i thought i undercut myself.
cost of materials plus at least, at LEAST 20$/hour.
this is handmade we're talking about. not factory. it's worth a bundle. if not, then it's hardly worth it is it? i won't work for $5/hr doing anything.

I agree with all of you I put on my etsy shop 40 and I consider that is ship because as I said the material is terrible expensive and very high quality. Thank you so much for all your advices, I'm going to try to be more conceit about my work and give it more value (I'm not talking about money I'm talking about consideration on time, on creativity etc)

I hope my price is fine for people who like good crafts. Smiley

I'm glad you like it

Nice bag, looks really good. 40 is a good price, but I think I have to agree with crystal0901, you could have asked 55 for it.

When I looked at it, I thought $60.    I agree, don't sell yourself short.  Someone looking for a $20 purse won't appreciate the hard work and beautiful materials that went into that piece.

When I saw this I definitely thought that $50 would be the lowest asking price. I think you could ask for much more though. Honestly, if I had made this purse, I would have a hard time selling it. I would want to keep it!

Wow, this is really beautiful! I love trees and flowers and I absolutely love flowering trees (the jacarandas here are just about to burst into awesome purpleness!!) Anyway that was my random, roundabout way of telling you that I love the theme!

This looks really well made and incredibly neat! (And I love felt!)

I'm not sure a tutorial is needed, it looks pretty simple to figure out. The tree trunk is embroidered around the edges to tack it into place, the leaves are embroidered straight down the center so they are still 3 dimensional, and the flowers look like they have multiple french knots in the center of them.

No doubt about it though, it is a gorgeous bag!

Very nice attention to detail and an awesome choice of color. I have a simple felt purse pattern for little girls that I have made before but never thought to stich the pieces in this manner to get the 3D look. I have 3 to make for Christmas and I will definitely change my technique to this.
