This Etsy seller was extremely prompt responding to my request for fast shipment. Unfortunately, the napkins were not the right size for the event I planned (my fault for not noticing the size in the description). The seller was very gracious in accepting the return and prompt in crediting my account. The seller was delightful to work with and I hope to purchase from her in the future.

About

Confessions of a Sewing Junkie

I was a nine year old Girl Scout the first time I attempted to complete a sewing project with an antique, treadle sewing machine. It was a denim wrap skirt and it was a disaster. I couldn't stand to look at that skirt, much less wear it! For years after that, I had a horrible fear of sewing by machine. However, after years of sewing by hand (I was the Goth girl doing counted cross-stitch samplers during lunch in high school) and testing the limits of many a sewing machine, I finally found one that could keep up with me and have been sewing non-stop ever since. I now own five sewing machines: one that is fast, one that is my baby, one that I got for cheap, one that is turquoise and one that is so huge that the only room in my house in which it will fit is my living room.

How did I start making quilts? After dabbling with fashion and home decor sewing, I took a class on quilting and fell for it head over heels.

I love mixing both vintage and new fabrics to create quilts that are simultaneously modern and traditional and are also absolutely unique. Each finished piece represents countless hours of consideration and construction. Each of my quilts and blankets are made with love by me and they are made to be loved so, unless otherwise noted, can be gently machine washed and dried.

Frequently asked questions

Gift wrapping and packaging

Is this item being sent as a gift? Every order, gift or not, is carefully wrapped, and I would be happy to include a personalized note to the recipient. Just leave a message in the "Notes to Seller" section at the check-out and I'll enclose it with the package.

Care instructions

One of the biggest benefits of having an all natural, Peppermint Pinwheels playmat is that it is washable! If it gets dirty, just throw it in the wash! Because these mats are made with natural fibers, there may be some shrinkage when washed, especially if they are washed in hot water or dried in a hot dryer. Many of my customers find that putting the mats in the dryer gives them a little extra "puff," but if you want to ensure less shrinkage in your mat, it's best to wash it in cold water and line dry it!

Custom and personalized orders

If you are looking for something slightly different from what you see listed, please feel free to contact me. I'm often happy to do custom orders, just ask!

Production Method

What makes a Peppermint Pinwheels play mat better than all the rest? I make my mats from heavy, canvas weight fabrics and they are padded with the thickest cotton batting available. They are quilted over-all in a diamond pattern to keep the padding from shifting, and the edges have been double stitched for added stability. These mats are made be used and made to last! They are also 100% washable with no cover to remove and free of flame retardants or any other nasty chemicals. Whenever possible, I source materials from manufacturers in the US. These playmats are easy to fold for travel and storage and handmade by me.

Can this mat be used on hardwood floors?

The amount of padding that people feel comfortable with is a bit of a tricky question, as it's so subjective - everyone has a different comfort level! Each layer of padding is about 1/4" thick, but the best way to describe the padding of the playmats is to think of a pile of wool blankets: A single padded playmat is like having 2 stacked wool blankets, the double padded mat is like having 3-5 wool blankets and the triple padded mats are like having 4-7 blankets. While it is as thick as many commercially made activity mats sold in the US, it is not padded like a foam mat, as it is not made from foam, but from natural materials. This has the added benefit of making my mats 100% washable!
