Put your creativity into a profitable use by selling colorful, beaded women’s handbags. Get ready with your sewing machine, beading materials and sewing skills as we show you instructions on how to come up with bags people can’t resist!
To price your beaded bag, add 30 to 50 percent to your total cost and get your markup. It is possible to recover your investment quickly with your first customer, but your success will depend on how you market your bags.
