Hair Bows

I know the marketplace is pretty saturated with these, but it is about the only thing I know how to make and am good at. I was hoping to price items fairly reasonably at $3/barrette, pin, or clip, $5/headband, and $5/pair of barrettes, pins, or clips. I would ship in a flat rate envelope or whatever method is cheapest so shipping would be about $5/max. The flower bows come in 2 sizes, both of which can be seen on the headbands. Thoughts or suggestions?

Here is the site with 2 sample pictures:

Thank you! I will be taking much better photos with my dh's photography equipment and models so I just wanted to make sure it was worth my time to do all that work. Also, are my prices reasonable? I wanted to make them as affordable as possible. Thank you for the feedback!

Very reasonable prices. I would love to see more pictures. I'm on the look out for hair bows for my 11month dd, who was born with a ton of hair. Most of the bows and corkies out there overwhelm her head.

Re: Hair Bows

Good prices. I also make some small ones too cause my lil 4 month old has a ton of hair and you can never find tiny hairbarettes..

The dimensions for the flowers are 3 inches in diameter for the large flower and just under 2 inches in diameter for the small flower. Is that a good size? Should I make one size smaller? I'm afraid they would be way too tiny.
