About

Sewing is slowing down in a fast world!

I learned to sew at an early age, as well as to embroider, knit, and crochet from my mother and grandmother. I have sewn most of my life since about the age of nine. At times, I have created my own wardrobe, including outerwear, and everything I needed for my own house. After having my thumb joints replaced due to osteoarthritis (which I have had since about age 21), I began sewing small make-up bags to retrieve the function of my hands. I went from there to totebags and purses. I, then, entered the Frankfort Community Library's Annual Art Show and Sale to sell the items that I had created during my recovery. After than I simply began sewing more. I recently began my new line of recycled/upcycled items--taking old leather jackets & coats and making new functional totes and purses from them. One less thing in the land fill!

    I am at my best when I am creating, whether a tote bag, jewelry, or a history. An historian by trade, I love to sew, which I learned to do at an early age. It is extremely satisfying to take a piece of fabric or leather and design something pleasing.

Welcome to The Perfect Parfleche!
A parfleche was a Native American rawhide bag used to carry personal items. Our totes & purses do the same today, carrying make-up, books, laptops, keys, cellphones--whatever we need.
My Parfleches are designed in various sizes and shapes; quilted, beaded, or plain; for men, women, and children.
If you have a particular quilt design or fabric or other customization in mind, please feel free to convo me.
Please read the entire section, so you that you fully understand my policies. By making purchases in my shop, you are agreeing to these policies, as well as any additional information in the item listing and shop announcements.

Thank-you for taking the time to read this section.

Payment
*Please pay immediately upon checkout.

*Payment must be recieved before an item will be shipped out. If payment is not received within 7 business days after purchase, the order will be cancelled.

*I prefer Paypal. It is free and takes very little time to set up an account! You do not need a PayPal Account to pay for your items through PayPal. You can choose the PayPal Option during checkout. After you submit your order click the "Pay Now" button. Scroll Down and you will see the option to pay with a Credit or Debit Card WITHOUT having to sign up for a PayPal account.

Shipping
If you would like this shipped to a country outside the US, please convo me.

Please understand that I cannot be held responsible for a package once it has left my hands. Thus, I am not liable for postal mistakes, loss, theft, damage, or anything else that may happen after the package is shipped.

How Your Parfleche Travels:
*A hang tag with contact information is attached to each Parfleche.

*Each Parfleche is wrapped and stuffed with tissue paper to help protect it and help retain its shape while traveling.

*Each large Parfleche is packed in a box large enough to accomodate it without crushing or folding it. Make-up and utility bags may be shipped flat. I like to re-use 'like-new' boxes, but let me know if you would like a brand-new box.

*An invoice and care card will accompany each Parfleche.
Refunds and Exchanges
Refunds and Exchanges:
I take great care and pride in the workmanship of each Parfleche. All Parfleches are carefully constructed for durability and quality. Should a problem occur, however, please notify me within three days after package is received, and I will work with you to rectify the problem.

All custom Parfleche sales are final and are not eligible for an exchange or refund. This includes any changes in fabric selection/combinations, addition of custom features, or alterations to Parfleche, pocket, or strap size.

Please consider all sale item purchases to be final.

Thank-you for your understanding.
Additional policies and FAQs
Custom Orders:
I will accept custom orders, such as the use of special fabrics and/or the use of personal quilt pieces, etc. Please convo me so we can discuss your desires.

Description & Measurements:
I try to be exact in my descriptions and measurements, so please read individual descriptions carefully. There are, however, several caveats:
* Because each item is handmade, no two items will be exactly the same.
* Photos may not be an exact indication of the true size, so read all measurments carefully.
* Please keep in mind that colors vary on computer monitors.
* Items photographed on models may hang differently on you. The photo only gives you an idea of how it looks.

Feadback:
I want you to be satisfied with your Parfleche. If there is a problem with your order, please contact me before leaving feedback to give me the opportunity to rectify the situation.

Care of Your Parfleche:
*Use of a protective spray (such as ScotchGuard), may aid in preventing heavy soiling. Read and follow all protective spray manufacturer's directions.

*Most fabric Parfleches may be spot-cleaned with a mild detergent and cold water. Do not rub or scrap fabric.

*For overall cleaning, handwashing of fabric Parfleches is acceptable. Use cold water and a mild detergent. Squeeze the water through the bag; do not rub or wring the Parfleche. To dry, squeeze the Parfleche between towels, gently shape bag, and air dry.

*Most fabric Parfleches may be ironed with a misting of spray starch to help retain the shape. Read and follow all directions on the spray starch can or bottle.

*Parfleches constructed of batik fabric may release some dye when washed. This is normal for batik fabrics.

*Leather items should be treated as any other leather item you buy. Professional cleaning recommended. Can be treated with leather cream and weather-proofed, but the weather-proofing may darken the color. Always read manufacturer's labels before applying to your parfleche.
