Announcement   Hi! Welcome to my shop. I hope you can find what you are looking for here, and if not, I'd love to work with you, so just let me know what you need or want! We have moved to our own website now, but will continue to take international orders here in a smaller capacity, as our website is Dutch only for now. Thank you for joining me here!

I am here for you, whether it's sewn bags or crochet items.

Love, The Purple Lady

PS: For our Dutch customers: we now have our own website with webshop, and we prefer that you order there rather than here, as it is more cost effective for both you and us, and as we have many more products there. The shipping costs for the Netherlands are deliberately marked higher here. You can find us on www.thepurplelady.net!

About

Anything for crochet and knitting

I have been sewing since my landlord taught me several years ago. The first thing I made was an apron without a pattern, and with handmade bias tape, even though I had no idea how. That is why it was very asymmetrical, badly made, and a bit eh, funny. My boyfriend, who it was for, very nicely asked later if he had to keep it... (no, he did not)

Anyway, I have come very far since then. I have learned a lot, and gained a few new hobbies, like crochet and knitting. The sewing (and bags in particular) kept coming back every once in a while, and then I learned about sewn project bags...

That was the start of this Etsy, I love trying out new fabrics and patterns, and try to make your project fit in my bags the best way I can. Keep checking in with me, and who knows what new things I will have come up with!

Frequently asked questions

What kind of interfacing do you use?

Right now I mostly use H180 standard interfacing, but also have H630 available, which is more luxurious, soft and voluminous.

Care instructions

All of my bags (unless otherwise specified) are made out of prewashed cotton. This means that I have already shrunk them and tested the color fastness.
You should be able to wash your bags (if they do NOT have bead hangers) in the washing machine at 30C. I can not guarantee they can be machine dried, as I don't have a dryer myself, and haven't tested this. If, after correctly following washing instructions, the bag has become faulty, please contact me and I can see if I can at least give a discount on a new one.

Gift wrapping and packaging

I can gift wrap items for you, but I'd almost rather not, as I am not very experienced with this.

Usually, my bags are sent off in bubble envelopes, which means the items are quite well protected.

How does the shipping of items work?

You may choose whether you want me to use stamps (default) or a traceable code (shipping upgrade) to ship your order. When choosing stamps, I can't guarantee delivery, and it won't be insured. This means that if you don't receive your package after choosing stamps (which is the default and cheaper option), I will NOT be held accountable. You can choose to upgrade shipping to include track and trace, and this includes insurance for up to 50€. I recommend the shipping upgrade, especially in case of bags, as usually I can't send a replacement, the bags being one of a kind most of the time.
