How Much Is a Fair Price for Tutus
I usually just make tutus for my children and was approached by someone who wants to buy a few of them. How much do you think is the fair pricing. 25 yard rolls are around $6 . I will need at least 2 to make one and 4 if she wants it super fluffy. What do you think is the standard percentage of cost that is fair for pricing?

I'd charge for the expense of the goods and minimum wage for however many hours it takes you to make it.

I saw a website listed in the Free Press this week. Here is the website. This mother makes tutus and other frilly things. You might want to check out her prices for ideas of what to charge.
Here is the news article if you are interested.

I would charge $20-25, plus your cost. Google TUTU-- there are lots for sale online.

Depending how many she wants if she wants one I would charge her half. But if she wants more than one charge her half for one and than maybe half off each one after so like charge 6 dollars for one and 3 dollars a piece for everyone after. I don't know. By the way what are tutus? Just curious to know I like different things and different stuff from a cultural expect. It sounds neat.

I know someone who sells things that he makes at arts and crafts fairs. Typically he adds 25% for something that is easy to make (less than one hour start to finish) and up to 50% for more labor intensive. Figure out how much you want to charge for labor (the minimum wage idea is good) and then find out how full she wants it before you quote her a price, that way you can adjust for your labor involved.
