DIY Decorative Pillows

I was asked to make some decorative pillows so I decided to sew on my Friday off.  She knew I can sew because I've gifted her a DIY pilllow in the past.  She provided the materials (i.e. fabric, thread, pillow forms, and polystuffing) so basically I am only charging her for the labor.  Problem is...I don't know how much to charge her! LOL! Help! Any ideas???
