Ros was proactive and saw that I'd paid for express shipping and got the purse made and ready for my fiancees birthday. Great to be able to support an Australian business, she has a wide range of products with unique and interesting fabrics and all beautifully hand-made.

Origins of Handmade for Me
Handmade for Me came about because I have always sewn. I have always made things for my children and before their explosion into my world, I made things for my homes. Then I started to use my bulging fabric stash and sewing machine to make things for my friends and anyone else that liked them.
I really like the idea of something handmade; something tactile and made to look just the way I like. The expression on the faces of children or adults when they see their newly made item makes my world and theirs glow a bit brighter. Hence the name of the business - Handmade for Me.
These products are made so that you have that feeling of owning something no one else has and something which was made for just for you. Whether I know you or not, these items are handmade, with care, attention and love. In each Handmade for Me product there is a little part of my hope that everyone can have that special feeling, that someone has spent time and care on something just so that you can say it was Handmade for Me.
I have always sewn and some of my earliest memories include my Aunt rocking the pedal on her singer sewing machine with both feet; my grandmother knitting my other grandmother making quilts and my mother making clothes. Creativity & making is family

Postage & Registered Mail
Standard mail is used for all shipping in order to keep costs as low as possible for my customers. This means there is no signature on delivery. Please see 'Lost in the Mail' in store policies for additional information.

What is PUL or "Polyurethane Laminate"?
What is PUL?
"PUL" is an acronym for "Polyurethane Laminate" which is a process of bonding two fabrics together with a layer of Polyurethane.
This makes the material water resistant to everything but a dunking and soaking. The process of making PUL means it is BPA free.
Some of the PUL used by Made for Me is food safe, that means it can be used for lunch bags or other bags which may be used to hold food. Where this applies it is noted in the description of the item.
If you want a food safe PUL item, please contact the shop owner to discuss your requirements as this is could be a customisation.
