Pricing for a particular job

Could somebody please help me price a job already done? I have made a pair of lined curtains 2.5 widths each to fit a 10foot bay window, they were handstitched and weighted, not machine stitched...also a valance was made for the same width, but I had to make it to the customers design which included self covered buttons and rosettes and was a tricky design this was also lined. In addition to this they wanted boxed window seat cushions made to fit into a victorian style bay so it had to be made in 3 seperate peices at odd angles and were 8 inches deep.I supplied the foam, lining header tape, buttons etc and the customer supplied the main fabric. I appreciate that a price wasn't agreed as they just 'wanted it done' so really gives me a free range. I don't want to overprice but at the same time underprice as it took alot of work to do.I imagine a shop would charge a fair amount for the boxed seat and the custom made valance...I have no idea what to charge as a whole price ....can anyone help? Many thanks..Jean
