Are you selling it online? If so, price it at $15 + shipping. If it looks like it isn't going to go at that price, knock it down to $12 + shipping. I deffinetly wouldn't go any lower than $12, seeing as you need to consider material cost and the value of your time (priceless  Grin).

If you are selling it in a physical store, ask maybe $15 or $17, depending on the Ritz factor of the location.

It's beautifull, I bet the lining looks georgous with the copper lame!
Good luck!

that bag is hot stuff!  I think it could go for more than $15, personally.  It looks really neatly, nicely sewn, the design is really cool and unique, ditto for the fabric, and it just looks professional.  Especially with a silk lining.. I think it could go for $25-30, maybe more.  Crafty people think, gee, I might be able to make that... but non-crafty people would see it and just be impressed.  Don't shortchange yourself.  Smiley

Now accepting orders for custom handmade books.. treat yourself to a new handbound journal or sketchbook! 
PM me for details.

etsy shop coming soon!

Thank you amyshrugged & rockfullofawesome for you great advise & kind words about my little bag. I guess I will go with $15 (I always forget about postage on top), it is so hard to price things mostly for the US market being in the UK. Thanks again  Grin Grin Grin

I don't usually like clutches that much, nor sparkly fabrics, but the SHAPE of the bag is GORGEOUS..!  Roll Eyes
I'd totally love it if it was more of a brown fabric like it looks on the 2nd picture...  Grin
