About CreatedbyRae

On Etsy since 2015

Sewing, meet books...

Welcome to Created by Rae!!

I'm Rae, the creative mind and hands at work here. I learned to sew at a young age watching my mom. I decided I wanted to learn how to quilt when I was in my early 20's when I was walking through the store and saw a bunch of really cute Halloween fabric and wanted to make a quilt out of it! I've been quilting ever since. I opened my Etsy shop in 2015 after moving into a larger apartment, realizing I still couldn't keep everything. I started out with just quilts and quilt tops in my shop.

Currently, I live in Rochester, MN and work full time at the Mayo Clinic (yes, that Mayo Clinic). My sewing space is my dining room, because who needs an actual dining room? My shop has now evolved to offer products that merge my love of sewing and books. Outside of work and sewing, I enjoy reading (obviously), playing with my cat, travelling, watching documentaries, volunteering with the humane society, and swimming.

My shop is the perfect place to find a great gift for that book lover that's in everyone's life. You will find fabrics and prints here that you won't find anywhere else! There is something for everyone. I know that not every person who is passionate about reading belongs to a fandom, so not every book sleeve should be book or fandom themed. I feel quite strong about this, so I go to great lengths to pick out the perfect print for every sleeve that I make hoping that when the buyer sees it, they go "that's the one! that's just what I was looking for!"

I really hope you love my shop and you find what you're looking for. If you don't, feel free to message me and I'll do what I can to fix that.

Thanks for stopping by!

Frequently asked questions
Updates

I don't have a set schedule for when I update and add new items. I tend to do it when I have several new things that are complete and ready to go! Watch my Instagram for updates and clues for what's up next! And always, if there's something you want made especially for you, send me a message!

Custom Orders

Not finding what you want? Send me a message! I would love to see if I can make a book sleeve just for you!

I do custom book sleeve orders two ways. I can hunt down a fabric for you or if you've already found one, you can ship it to me and I'll do the rest!

I'll work out the details with each customer individually, but I let everyone know up front that the cost can vary from my pre-made sleeves depending on the extra work or extra material costs.

Books Sleeve Sizes and Measuring Books

I have four sizes of sleeves available –
SMALL – 6” x 9” – fits most kindles, nooks, and mass market paperbacks
MEDIUM – 7” x 10” – fits most standard paperbacks
LARGE – 8” x 11” – fits most standard hardcovers and oversized paperbacks
EXTRA LARGE – 9” x 12” – fits those extra-large hardcovers

Don’t know what size you need? Here’s how to measure your book!
- First, measure the width of the spine. (e.g. 1 inch)
- Second, measure the height of the book. (e.g. 9.5 inches)
- Third, measure the width of the book. (e.g. 6.5 inches)
- Fourth, add the measurement of the spine width to each of height and width measurements. (e.g. 9.5 + 1 = 10.5 inches and 6.5 + 1 = 7.5 inches)
- 7.5 by 10.5 inches will need a LARGE book sleeve!

Shipping Multiple Items and Shipping Turnaround

If you purchase more than one item, I will automatically combine all of the items into one package. Any overages in shipping cost greater than $1 will be refunded automatically, unless the shipping is already free!

I usually have all pre-made, in stock items shipped in 3-5 days. If you would like to cancel or modify an order, please contact me as soon as possible. Once orders have been delivered to the post office, I can't make any changes.

Custom and wholesale orders will be discussed on a case by case basis.

Why are Created by Rae book sleeves special?

My shop is the perfect place to find that book sleeve that will fit into everyone's life. You will find prints here that you won't find anywhere else! You also won’t find better prices for the quality of product that I provide.

I use only the highest quality materials and only the highest quality work will meet my standards. I am a book lover first, and I will only sell what I would carry around. I go to great lengths to pick out the perfect print for every sleeve that I make hoping that when the buyer sees it, they go "that's the one! that's just what I was looking for!" If you don’t see what you’re looking for, send me a message and I’ll do what I can to made it happen and we will work out the details.

Refusal of Service/Order Cancellations

I reserve the right to cancel any order at any time if I believe the buyer is engaged in fraudulent activities or suspect a buyer of rebranding or reselling my products as their own after purchase.

Wholesale/Resale Orders

I do accept wholesale and resale orders, depending on current projects. Cost will depend on the individual project and time frame. Each resale client will be asked and required to sign a formal resale agreement. Please message me here or on Instagram for quotes and inquiries.
