JessaLu's Shop Announcement


Gift Certificates - if you purchased a gift certificate through this shop, it IS transferable to my Big Cartel Shop. Just sent me a note through my Contact Me at Big Cartel or Convo me here.

**Here is a great gift idea: The next round of the Mad Geek Tour yarn/fiber+bag club is open for sign-ups! Go here for more details: This next round is Doctor Who themed and will have a bag made from exclusive fabric that will not be available in my shop (or anywhere else) for 6 months after the bag ships! There is a gift card option on the sign up page!

Hello! Welcome to Stitched by JessaLu - Thank you so much for visiting my shop! I have so much to tell you, please expand to see all!

**Before you send a convo asking me about a print, please check my shop: Thank you!**

I recently began offering Jane Austen themed bags which were featured in the Dry Goods section of the Fall 2012 edition of Jane Austen Knits by Interweave Press - I have a screenshot up in my Ravelry group here:

Home of the ORIGINAL bucket bag! Often imitated but never duplicated. ;o)

You can read a tutorial on the original usage of this bag here: they've since morphed into a knitting bag as well as spinning!

If there is a specific print you are looking for, please convo me! If you see a print in the shop that you'd like in a bucket, spindle, or large bag, let me know and I'll see what I can do! Thank you!


All hand-sewn items are made by me (yes, I am a one-woman operation - my mom irons for me once a week but that's the only help I have!) on a c1936 Model 15-91 Singer sewing machine in a smoke-less and cat-less home (but not dog-less, though she's little and isn't allowed in the sewing room).

You can see pictures of my sewing machine here: My machine isn't fancy, it doesn't have the ability to do a lockstitch edge but she's a workhorse and I love her. She does the job while my fancy new Singer sits in the closet, not working.

I am MORE THAN HAPPY to do custom orders! If you see two fabrics on two different bags in the shop that you think will make a lovely bag for yourself or if you have a general color/print idea kicking around and would like to design your own SbJL bag please don't hesitate to contact me! (please note that custom requests are for fabric only - I cannot take requests for custom bag designs at this time and if I do not have the fabric in stock this will add significantly to the delivery estimate)

**All bags are machine washable!!**

**ALL READY TO SHIP BAGS ARE IN THE 'READY TO SHIP' SECTION OF THE SHOP ONLY** Anything ordered from that section will go out next business day (same day if ordered before 11am EST).

If you have a question about shipping times, please check my shop policies. Thank you!
