This hoodie sweater is amazing, unique, and so well done! Kudos to this talented Seamstress and her wonderful shop! My hoodie was shipped out the same day and arrived fast! I love the fact that this shop upcycles material/clothing, and creates a wonderful new item! I am very pleased with my purchase and would definitely buy from again!

These are fantastic! My husband says that she made them super quick and shipped them really fast.
Hope Floats on!

My Love for sweaters started when I was just a wee young girl. This may have a little to do with the fact that living in Seattle almost necessitates a sweater year round. :) I grew up sewing many of my dresses for school, and well, one magical day I came across some awesome up-cycled work on Etsy and it was love at first sight. My love for sewing and sweaters were combined into one!
I love to save the earth in any way I can, and most of all love to be unique. My husband says Im the freak flag in our relationship, and I have to agree. I love to be unique, its what makes the world interesting right? If you feel the same, then take a look around and feel at home :)

Accepted payment methods
LAYAWAY: If you would like to put an item on layaway please send me a convo me and we can work out a payment time-line. Items that arent paid for in the established timeline (which will be clearly spelled out in the listing) will forefit 10% of the total cost of the item (not counting shipping) (anything over the 10% will be refunded) and the item will be removed from reserve and placed up for sale again.
INTERNATIONAL CUSTOMERS: Please be aware that if you are purchasing from outside of North America your country may charge you import duties or a VAT based on the price of your purchase. Every country has it's own fees and policies so if you have questions, it is best to contact your customs department.
Shipping is generally ship all items the following business day (after payment received) though may be 2 business days at most if item is not custom made, those take longer, and I will quote you a general time line PRIOR to your purchase!!
custom orders can be broken up into payments, however once I have begun construction (and purchased items for construction) 25% of the total cost of the item will be non-refundable if you decide to cancel your order. (which usually doesnt even cover the cost of the materials).
If you're unhappy with a custom order please see refund policy.
Small items (like arm warmers , hats, and scarfs) I ship first class with insurance
All Coats and Hoodies are shipped Priority with insurance.
Most items in my shop are shipped USPS. If you prefer another shipping company let me know, and I will charge you exact shipping costs.

Digital download items are not returnable as I cant get them back from you once you have purchased, so please read entire listing before you purchase! Im happy to help you with any questions along the way while you are making your items though.
Additional policies and FAQs
All fabrics that have gone into creation of your pieces have been laundered prior to use.
Please make sure that you DO NOT Place your items in the wash unless I send you a note with your item that they are washer safe!
Most contain wool which will shrink! To keep your items looking their best you should carefully hand wash cold and lie flat to dry. So many different knits and fabrics go into these pieces that you can never be sure what might continue to shrink.
If you do decide to throw yours in the wash it is at your own risk!
