How much would you pay?

 I know many of you don't have babies and don't have a need for a sling but IF you did---and you were interested in buying one like this...how much do you think you would be willing to pay? I made this one and I have an acquaintance that is interested in purchasing one from me. I'm having a hard time with a price. I want to charge enough that I'm not doing free labor but I don't want to charge so much that it seems unreasonable. Any opinions? Thanks a bunch!

 I'm cheapy so I'd probably pay $20-$25.

My best advice is to search etsy & ebay for homemade slings and see what they are charging. Then charge similar pricing - just dont forget shipping & handling if you plan on sending them to people or selling them online.

I think 25 is a fair price.

What did the material cost you?  How long does it take for you to put it together?  I would think $20 -$25 is good but if she's a really good friend and it only cost me $10 to make I would probably charge a FRIEND $15-$20..  I prefer to do things for friends CHEAPER than people who aren't my friends..  That's all.

The cost for me to make it is going to depend on how cheep I can find fabric. It's 4 yards of fabric (Im hoping I can find some cute on clearance for less than $5/yard) the rings cost $4. So that would be $24 (@ $5/yard) I was thinking about asking $35.

$25-30...but I'm on a tight budget so I have to keep that in mind when looking for things to purchase.
