Edging Pattern on a Hanky

I have been making edgings for several hankies and because the edge of the hanky is scallop I had trouble looking for a pattern. I started doing this one after some trial and errors. Another "here I am" design. It ruffles a little, because I like hanky's edgings to ruffle just a little so it looks more feminine. I have done already 3 out of 6 hankies and I think I'll keep doing this pattern.

How much does a person would pay for a hanky? $20? $30? Would like some input.

Wally my dear,
Love how the tatting thread coordinates with the embroidery on the handkerchief. What thread did you use?
If the handkerchief is at least 12 inches by 12 inches, you could charge $30. If it is smaller, perhaps not as much. If it is fine cotton or linen, perhaps more. If it is synthetic fabric, then less. If it is a vintage handkerchief in good to excellent condition, then more. But I would use the 12"x12", natural fibers, and vintage as the decision point.
