Smelly Cat, Smelly Cat, it's not your fault.
They won't take you to the vet,
You're probably not their favorite pet.
You may not be a bed of roses
And you're no friend to those with noses

What I do is charge by the yard, since I tend to work on things in fits and starts. For me, it's supplies + $0.25 a yard Smiley This brings your average 100-yard hat to supplies + $25

That's really cool... I've never seen a pricing way like that, I may try that. I'm starting to sell a few things and originally I simply did supplied x2, but that doesn't amount to much if I make something smaller.
