I have more than 10 apron's made in this order and it is at least my third order like this! THEY ARE SO ADORABLE! I picked out my fabric and she put each apron together than I could have ever imagined. The promptness of responses to questions and to making them and sending them was AMAZING! This is the best ETSY VENDOR I have ever dealt with. Kind, talented!! I would HIGHLY recommend ordering. I am BEYOND satisfied!! There are times in life where little things bring the greatest joy. This is one of them. A heartfelt THANK YOU!

Already wrapped it so I can’t take a pic, but it is beautiful! The blanket is thinner than I was expecting...more like a receiving blanket, but that actually made it better. The stitching “pops out” which looks great! I would definitely recommend this product!

I desperately need and love H back aprons as they don't hang on my neck. I ordered two of these lovely aprons and they are just as described. Beautifully made and fit well. Communications about timing and shipping were perfect.

Next on the production schedule: An order of 15 customized aprons. This will take a while! See you in a week! ♡
Good news! I found a bit more of this adorable unicorn fabric. Now I can make one or two more aprons (depending on what size is ordered.) Listing can be found on the homepage of my shop, or in the Pinafore section.

About

Indulge yourself -- buy handmade and see the superior fine detail and quality vs. mass produced products!

I've been a professional seamstress and designer for over 20 years. For the first 6 years of my career, I sewed infant and children's clothing for a fabulous indie kid's store, putting millions of miles on my sewing machine... After that store closed, I did a lot of contract sewing /designing on my own, which eventually led me to open my first online shop back in 2005.

Jumping ahead to the summer of 2008, my original independent website's Wrapper Purse Collection attracted the attention of a large company (which 'upcycles' un-recyclable things to make unique products.) Their CEO contacted me out of the blue, and I happily joined their design team a few weeks later. Since I no longer had time to make my own Wrapper Purses for sale, I copyrighted those original patterns to sell in my shop.

Around that same time, I made my first apron. It was love at first stitch! Since I added them to my shop, the popularity of my aprons has almost eclipsed everything else in my shop.

INTERNATIONAL CUSTOMERS are responsible for paying all taxes, duties, handling fees, and custom charges that apply for orders that are shipped outside of the United States. (These fees are NOT collected at the time of purchase-- they are collected after the package arrives in the designated country where the fees must be paid before you can retrieve your package. No seller has the ability to waive these government fees.)

FOR EXAMPLE: Please be advised that purchases coming into the UK are charged a 20% VAT when the cost of the item is over £15. There is also an £8 handling fee from the UK post office. *You will not be receiving your package but a card from the post office to notify you that you need to pay the fees and pick up your package. Please note that this will cause a delay in receiving your item, due to the extra package handling involved upon arrival in your country.

Frequently asked questions

Packing slips are included

Packing slips and/or gift receipts are ALWAYS included in shipments. (Purchases marked as a gift do not show prices.) Each apron is neatly wrapped in a plastic bag to protect the fabric. Purses are enclosed in cellophane wrap. (Packing slips are folded inside of the wrapping. Should the shipping materials or address label become damaged during shipment, this gives the Post Office another method of identifying where the package should go.)

Custom and personalized orders

I love working with my customers to create one-of-a-kind items to suit their unique personalities! Feel free to contact me to discuss customizing your order using different fabrics than what is shown in the listing photos.

Custom embroidery is also an option. Contact me for more information, if you want to add a name or monogram. There is a $10/per item fee for this personalization. https://www.etsy.com/lauriesgiftsbiz/listing/252642799

Rush Orders

As often as my schedule allows, I try to work with my customers to meet their unique deadlines. Please contact Laurie to see if it is even possible to work your Made-to-Order item into the production schedule BEFORE you place your order.

There is a ($10 per item) fee for the privilege of moving your VIP item(s) ahead of previous orders waiting their turn in my schedule. Read details here: https://www.etsy.com/lauriesgiftsbiz/listing/251785260

FASTER shipping options are available in the shopping cart during check out. Priority Mail delivers within 2-3 days. If you're desperate, Priority Mail EXPRESS delivers within 1-2 days. (I think it is ridiculously expensive, but I have added the option for YOU to decide for yourself.)

COMBINED SHIPPING

As always, shipping charges for purchases of multiple items will be automatically combined in the shopping cart to save on postage. Feel free to test this out by placing several items in your shopping cart!

Please note: Purchases of multiple items which include a purse and/or tote may not calculate accurately using Etsy's shipping calculator. Rest assured that any over-payment greater than $1 will be refunded once your order ships!
