How much should I charge? Sewing related PIOG

A lady from my church asked me to make something for her for the babies in our nursery. I will be making 20 towel bibs. It is a hand towel with a hole for their head to go through to keep them clean when eating snacks/food.
She will be providing all the parts for it, but I will be sewing them up.
My dh said to charge somewhere between $30-$50. If I did $2/bib that would be $40.
Please give me some ideas. I have about 1.5 weeks to get them all done. They're pretty simple, so it shouldn't take too long.
TIA

I think that is the right price since she is providing the materials.

$2, per bib sounds fair.

It is a nonprofit organization. Good for you. You are buying the towels so you are doing more than your part. Sewing is the gift you are blessed with and you are using it for a great cause.

I sew as well. Let me know if you have any other questions about sewing and building your home business!

Take Care and God Bless!

If they are for the church nursery, I would donate my services.

Normally, I would charge for my time, plus the cost of materials (x2).

Have fun!

It's not a home business, but thanks for your input. I have been sewing for over 20 years, but rarely charge anyone. We can use the extra cash right now, so that's why the $2/bib.
