Re: Would you be annoyed?

5 yards seems just insane for a bag, even one with lots of pockets.

There is more of a risk for accepting the customer's fabric. WAHMs are not machines, we are not perfect. I'm always very afraid I will mess something up.

That being said, I would find a different seller.

Re: Would you be annoyed?

I would ask her specifically, like "Because I am sending my own fabric will you discount me $__ for the cost you would normally incur by using your fabric?" Maybe she thinks you want your cost of the fabric off and doesn't understand that your only asking for the cost of her fabric? And if she says no, I agree, I'd probably move on.

I agree with the above. Tell her exactly what you want as far as a discount for the fabbrc and then see what she has to say. Maybe she hasn't had anyone use all their own fabric before and doesn't know what to offer? Also, if you want the scraps back you need to clearly tell her that, don't assume she knows and will just send them.

5/6 yards us a lot of fabric. That is 15 feet in length plus a ton in width since yardage opens up to double the width after being cut. That is enough fabric for a sleeping bag

As to the topic at hand, I would tell her that when you asked about the custom you were fine with paying for the bag and sending in the 3/4 a yard but since you are now sending in all the fabric, you wish to adjust the price accordingly. If she pays $3 a yard for fabric (which she may if she catches sales) that should be a $15 discount.

Honestly I would be turned off from getting the bag at all. Seems shady to me to ask for all the fabric and not lower the price AT ALL when all she does is customs with cheaper fabric selections.

Re: Would you be annoyed?

yeah 6 yards of fabric is WAYYYYYYY too much for a bag!

I use 3 tops for the biggest bag I've ever made. And that was HUGE with a ton of different lined pockets

I agree with others. Tell this wahm that you are going to go elsewhere

I keep trying to figure out how she needs 6 yds! Even matching up prints/lined pockets ...that seems like a ridiculous amount. For the price she is charging... she should give a discount for you sending your own material!
