Hello I will try to explain the project that I am working on in hopes that I can get an idea of what others that may do this type of work charges.I have a client that ask if I could make strips for her. She is a Physical Therapist and uses the strips for her work. She brought me 5 different types of fabric about 2 to 2 1/2 yards in length. I had to cut the fabrics into strips of 1", 1 1/2’" 1/2", but keep the length, after cutting them I had to serge all 275 pieces of them, then cut velcro and sew on the velcro. Some pieces reguired two strips of velcro and others required one piece of velcro, then 50 strips required about 25 pieces of velcro. I figured that I would charge her around $4.00 to $5.00 per piece. I have made strips for her before but it was on a much smaller scale and I feel that even then I under charged for the work.
I am wondering if this is a reasonable amount for piece work. My normal sewing jobs consist of making and altering clothing and my hourly rate is $20 per hour for labor and doesn’t include the cost of materials and supplies. I have been in business since 1997, but been sewing since the 8th grade.Any feedback I can get on this would be greatly appreciated.
