Hi all, I had to make 12 tie backs, and it took me 6 hours. They are like a belt with a loop. The loop is made of leather and they are piped in leather. Some are 70 long and some are 140 long and wre a nightmare to turn through once stitched as long narrow tubes and didn't want stitching to show on outside. I feel I have put lots of work into these and want to charge £120 for job, although to look at them finished it seems lots. But they are bespoke in a way, not something you would find in a shop. Do you think that is an excessive amount to charge, basically £10 each.
