PrettyThingsByBetty's Shop Announcement

Welcome to my little shop. All my items are completely handsewn and most are one of a kind. I love to use silk for corsages and boutonniers and most of the time I will use upcycled Italian tie silk. I will always say when I have used , (shall we say previously used silk) I hunt for ties in the little charity shops, so it is a win-win situation.(Love to think of the silk's journey - From little worm in Asia to Italy to USA and then who knows where. Board rooms,birthday party, dad Xmas gift. Air Force One!)

I am happy to do special or multiple orders. If you see something you like but would like it in a different fabric, smaller, larger or even better more than one.

I am a retiree and having four daughters have sewn all my life. Now I am enjoying handsewing small pretty things most of which just come to mind from the look of the fabric.

Love ribbon and lace too.


PrettyThingsByBetty's Shop Policies


All items made by me, handsewn most one of a kind.. Have sewn all my life. After four daughters have had enough of prom & wedding dresses and now enjoying pretty little things I can work on at my own pace. Make items that just seem right for the fabric and time of year. Can copy just about anything so if you have a picture or an idea let me know. I like to use tie silk, always looking for vintage lace and buttons.


I accept check or Paypal. More concerned with you liking my items than getting your money. Happy to have you pay when item is received. Full refund for any item that is not exactly what you were looking for.


I send items USPS. If you need something in a hurry I will send prioity mail but will need to add $2.00 to shipping charge.
Shipping is always free with more than one item

Refunds and Exchanges

Not what you wanted, changed your mind just return for full refund.
Always happy to hear ideas where I can do better.

Additional Policies and FAQs

Shop info says I started in 2007 but that was a short lived try out and I only came back into the picture in Nov. 2011. Happy to do custom or mutiple orders.
Won't get rich but having fun.
