Exactly as described and very fun. I can pop it on and leave the house - the chenille is just a smidge more grippy as described by seller.

About

The Middle Button: A Slow Adventure

I have to make things. My hands whimper and whine if they're not doing anything. They get bored, and itch to sketch a new design, work out a difficult pattern. Therefore, when I came across Etsy a few years ago, I thought it would be the perfect outlet for my creativity.

But, since I was still in school, my shop filled up very slowly; and my first few sales were last-minute Alchemy requests, which I, naive, undercharged for. I continued to make whatever popped into my head with whatever I could lay my hands on. Before long, I realized that I Did Not like patterns. No, sirree. Constricting, nasty things! I developed a new cable technique, and realized that I ought to be writing patterns, since I wasn't using them.

Meanwhile, life around my shop was going faster than a mile a minute. My nieces and nephews continued to multiply, and I found myself visiting wherever and whenever I could. Delighting in this life, my drive for my shop dwindled until finally I realized that The Middle Button wasn't going anywhere unless I kept pushing it forward.

So, here goes this slow adventure! At this pace, I might get where I'm going in a few decades... but that's what happens when you take the time to smell the roses.

Shipping

Refunds and Exchanges
I put a good deal of time and care into each item, so that my customers will be completely satisfied. If I have misrepresented an item so that it is unsatisfactory, I will work with my customers to come to a reasonable reimbursement, whether through return and refund, or replacement.
All sales on patterns are final, no refunds.
Additional policies and FAQs
All my items are available to be made custom in a different size or color. Allow up to 4 weeks for sweaters or other big items, up to 2 weeks for smaller items, such as snoods or scrunchies. All items are made in a smoke-free environment, and are kept away from our little animals.
I have three points that I price by:
Type of material: I try to get as many things as possible on sale, and if I can, I pass on these good prices to you.
Amount of material: The bigger the item, the more material it takes; the lacier the item, the less material it takes; items are priced accordingly.
Amount of detail/time: Although I don't have a specific price-per-hour I charge for labor, I do gauge prices by approximately how long and tedious each item was to make.
For custom items, I charge a non-refundable down-payment of 15% of the estimated final cost before beginning the project, and the remaining 85% on completion of the project.

Items will arrive wrapped attractively in white tissue paper and tied with a scrap of yarn. If you wish to add a personal message, just let me know; I'd be happy to do it!
