depends on size but $5 would be a good price IMO as long as they are not super tiny. I would want them to be about sandwich baggy size.

if it's that size, $2 would be the max i would pay. Here's why- when it comes to homemade projects the price is higher for things that #1 use lots of materials(quilts for example),#2 take a lot of time(tutus cost because of time).#3 customization.(embroiderer names, pick own fabric, ect) This project also uses velcro. around food and crumbs it means it won't last too long. It would be worth more to me if it had a zipper.

Now if you decide to make i would suggest putting 3 together of different sizes then charge $10. BTW incase you didn't know you can sell things like this on etsy

oh and another idea you can get insulated batting, you can make one cup sized and this would work great for soups and cups of hot or cold... I would be willing to pay $10-$15 for those! (this would need to be PUL material in case of leaks, at least on in the inside)

In guessing prices, for 8x4 inches, using velcro for this bag using PUL fabric for both sides,using insulated batting it would cost you about $3 to make it. After you get good at it it would take you an hour to make around 10.(with a sewing machine)

If you use PUL material it would up the price. This is the material used for hmm almost like a thicker umbrella. It is water proof, doesn't stain, easy to clean and in my opinion make it worth so much more.

Embroidering, the easy way is to honestly buy a machine that does it for you. You can connect these sewing machines to a computer, have any lettering or designs you want and it will just do it for you.(if you invest in such a machine, i would make bigger and more expensive things to offset the price) If you're doing it by hand, i would charge $2 a letter. It's hard and tedious work.
