Just a girl with a crafting addiction.

Welcome to Sassi Stitch Boutique!

I'm Cassi, a 30 year old living in Chicago with my husband and pooch. I went to fashion design school at Columbia College Chicago (shout out to all the other peeps in massive student loan debt!) and loved sewing and pattern making. I started out working on bridal gowns, making samples and grading patterns and then altering wedding gowns. This lasted for a few years before I realized brides are bat shit crazy! Then I switched to tailoring menswear which I still do to this day.

My obsession with crafting started in the womb pretty much. I grew up making friendship bracelets and bead animals. At the age of 10, I was a little entrepreneur, selling my bead animals around the neighborhood. I loaded all of my "beady babies" into my red wagon, slapped a "$1 for small beady babies and $2 for large beady babies" sign on the side and walked around the neighborhood selling my crafts. Then, at the age of 12 my mom introduced me to cross stitch. I loved it but it fell to the wayside as I picked up my next craft. Fifteen years later I found myself walking through a Chicago festival and saw a stand of cross stitches. One was a reference to My Favorite Murder and I screamed with delight, scaring the people around me and ran to the woman who was cross stitching. I then took up the hobby again and loved creating my own designs.

The first design was for my mom who refused to lock her doors because her neighborhood is so safe and everyone knows everyone. So being the caring and wonderful daughter that I am, I decided that I wanted to cross her a sign to put by her door as a reminder, "lock your fucking doors." It now hangs proudly in her entryway and, to my delight, makes my grandmother grumble under her breath when she sees it..

I then needed a sign for my bathroom, and then an outlet for my rage against all the turmoil this country is going through. I thought that maybe other people needed to partake in the relaxing hobby that is cross stitching. But flowers and cute cottages can only go so far. I need to make a statement! I have a very strong personality and I want to show it off. I can't be the only one.... and hence, Sassi Stitch Boutique was born.

It started as a hobby and has lead to being my pride and joy. I work on new patterns and designs everyday. Many are inspired by my husband, family, and the television shows that are also part of my family. (I'm looking at you Roses!)

I hope that you find solace in my work and can make it your own. Cross stitching is my stress reliever. It takes me to a world made up of nothing but flowers and sunshine with a touch of sass and swearing thrown in for good measure.

Frequently asked questions
Do you do custom orders?

I do custom cross stitch patterns and kits, as well as custom dyed fabrics. I will only take on custom designs that I'm comfortable with and confident they will translate to a pattern well. I do not do custom finished pieces.

Full custom pattern designs start at $25 and go up depending on size and complexity.

Care instructions

While my hand dyed fabrics have been washed in the dying process, it's important to care for them properly to ensure that the color does not bleed into your stitching. Reds tend to bleed more than other colors, so please take extra care. The fabric should be hand washed in cold water with gentle soap, such as woolite. Place the fabric in the soapy water, dip and swirl it for a couple minutes. If there are any dirt spots, gently rub at the spot with a clean washcloth. Rinse your piece thoroughly in cold water. Lay it on a clean towel, roll it up, and gently press the excess water out. Unroll and lay flat or hang to dry. Once dry, you can iron it on a cotton setting (medium to high heat).

How quickly can I access my downloads?

You're able to download your files as soon as your payment clears. It's pretty much immediate but sometimes it can take a minute or two.

How do I download my files?

There are a couple ways to download your files. If you're an Etsy member, and you made your purchase while logged into your profile, you can find your files when you go to your account, purchases and reviews, and then just click on your order from my shop!

You will also have an email from Etsy with your order confirmation and the link to download your files. If you for any reason, weren't logged into Etsy when you made your purchase you can still access your digital download from this email. Make sure to check all your folders and that you're looking at the same email that you used at checkout.
