Announcement   I make handmade purses and clutches from fine quality fabrics, as well as purse accessories, scarves, and skirts for little girls. I work out of my sewing room in my pet-free home, lovingly using up remnants and scraps of fabrics from previous projects. My purses are high quality, with all seams double stitched for durability and wear. All purses are also fully lined, and many of the larger purses have interior pockets for smaller items.

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to ask me a question.

Thank you!

About

I started making purses and clutches from leftovers.

I love to sew, and whenever I make a piece of clothing, there is always leftover fabric. The pieces were too big to throw away. Some of the fabrics were wrong for the type of quilting I do. Then it hit me - why not turn those scraps into clutches for ladies to carry?

So I did.

I drew my first pattern out on a piece of muslin. I still use that muslin pattern to create all the clutches in my shop. One day, I had someone contact me about making a set of bridal clutches for her. I made them, but she'd decided on something else for her bridesmaids. I listed the set of clutches and sold them two months later. I absolutely love making custom clutches for a lady's special day. Silk is magical, the colors are stunning, and I truly love creating those special gifts.

Come along with me on my magical journey of creation.

    I started sewing when I was 20 and designing purses about 12 years later. I love using leftover pieces of fabric from other sewing projects to make gorgeous clutches and purses. I do not have a staff and do not plan on adding one.

Thank you so much for shopping with 1mADwoman.

I love to create beautiful bags from the leftover scraps in my fabric stash. I also buy remnants and other beautiful pieces I can't resist (because fabric is like a Siren to me). I have a great job, and I love what I do. I get to create small pieces of artwork that women carry around with them, and what they carry looks nothing like the bags that are being mass-produced. To me, that is what "handmade" is all about. Having a unique item, made for you, that fits your personality and style, and most of all, isn't being carried by a hundred other women.

Thank you so much for stopping by!

Payment
I only accept PayPal, and payment is due at the time of the sale.

All custom orders are paid for in full up front. I may have to order or buy supplies. Swatches will be provided to you upon request for color comparison. Custom orders are non-refundable and non-returnable. Custom orders require, in most cases, at least three weeks prior notice to allow for shipment of flex frames and any fabric that may need to be ordered. If you have a large number of bridesmaids, I will need 4 - 6 weeks to finish the project.

North Carolina residents will be charged sales tax.
Shipping
All domestic orders are shipped USPS First Class or Parcel Post Mail with Delivery Confirmation. If you have need of expedited shipping, please let me know. I will be happy to set it up before you purchase your item - there will be an extra charge for expedited shipping.

I do ship internationally - I will ship Airmail or International First Class. If you need expedited international shipping, I am more than happy to accommodate you for an extra charge. Just send me a conversation, and I will set it up for you! I will not mark International packages as a Gift - there are fines and penalties associated with that, and the way I print labels, there is no way for me to do so. I can not change it from Merchandise to Gift, and I can not change the amount of the packages worth. Etsy sellers are not responsible for customs, duties, or VAT fees associated with international shipping.
Refunds and Exchanges
If the purse you receive is not what you want, I will accept returns within 10 days of purchase. The purse must be returned in the condition in which I sent it (no stains or signs of use). If you are returning an item, you are responsible for shipping charges. Once I have received the item, I will refund your money minus my shipping charges to you. I do not take returns on custom bridal orders - once I have shipped, the items are yours and I can not refund money for the items, especially if they are personalized.

If an item is lost, I will do my best to replace the item, but often my fabrics are in limited supply. If you do not want a replacement, I will refund your money minus my shipping charges.
Additional policies and FAQs
I LOVE custom requests. The bridal clutches need at least a three to four week lead time, depending on how many other bridal orders I am currently working on. The silk flex frame clutches are not ready made, and I do not stock silk in my house. The frames have to be ordered for each order I get in, and if I cannot find the silk I need in town, I will need to order that as well. I am just one person, so please keep that in mind when ordering!

Some of my fabrics are in very limited supply. I might be able to make more than one of an item. If you are interested in more than one of item, please let me know, and I will see if I can make extras.
