Default Girls, how do you price your bows?

How does everyone decide to price their bows? I am sort of at a lost for pricing and people are starting to ask me for pricing. I don't want to price them to high (what, someone wouldn't want to pay $20 for the complicated little bow I just made?????) or too low. I would really appreciate some guidance here

I figured out the cost of my supplies and then set my hourly wage, figured out how many bows, clips, headbands, etc I can make in an hour then add that to your cost of supplies and you have your price.

cost of supplies + (hourly wage/how many you can make in an hour) = price
Did we have transaction? Leave feedback!

I also try to price mine similarly to what others are pricing theirs at. Although I am still spending a lot of time on each bow, I figure no one will buy them if they are priced higher than others that are the same. HTH.
