Some very good advice

Today I took a break from tidying out my corner cupboard and perused Facebook and I found a link to a blog I think is really valuable it's about pricing handmade items.   Now at the moment I don't sell what I make, but I am considering selling my hand-spun yarn at some point and when I get good enough my weaving.   I know a bit about pricing, but the main thing I know is that most people who sell their hand-made items undercharge "because it's just a hobby".
When I do start selling stuff I will be charging enough to cover my materials and a reasonable amount for my labour. 

In the meantime though I'm still working on my stays, at the moment there's the top to bind and the eyelets to add which I'm hoping to finish this weekend

Oooh - let me know if you start selling your handspun!

Pricing is always a hard thing, but you don't want to under sell yourself. I think trying not to compare your product to others is really hard. I'd work out what your costs are based on materials and the time spent making your product, work out your price and then do some research on similar products.

The worst thing is under pricing, because then everyone else in the handmade community loses out.

Good luck with it, I know it's not an easy thing :)
