Updates

New line of cross body cell phone bags that I am going to make. I made this one as a custom order for a friend.

My daughter loves Shopkins so when I saw this fabric I knew that I had to make something with it. A new dance bag was the perfect solution.

About

Custom Bags and Totes and Machine Embroidery

Here at The Scarlet Thread I provide custom sewing and machine embroidery to my clientele. I started my shop back in December of 2009 with a few purses that I had made for myself and friends. At the time I started Etsy they had alchemy where customers could request an item and we as sellers could send in a bid. I used this as a springboard for getting orders but also as a way to make custom orders. I would then use the item that I made and make a listing for more custom orders of that particular item. This is how I got my start and is still the way that I get most of my orders. In 2015 I changed the direction of my shop from doing custom items of all kinds to again making handmade bags and totes. I select coordinating fabrics that I can make into a cute cosmetic bag or tote. I have several different styles and collections in my shop. Please feel free to browse through all of the sections.

Welcome to The Scarlet Thread. I am so happy that you stopped in to check out the creations that I have available. I would love to help you with your sewing needs. If you see anything in my shop that you would like customized to fit your special needs let me know and I would be happy to help you. I am here to use my God given talents to create something wonderful for you.

At times, I am able to offer rush items with an additional 20% fee. Please check with me before ordering to see how busy my schedule is and if I can fit the item into said schedule.

Accepted payment methods

  • Accepts Etsy gift cards
Payment
The Scarlet Thread accepts Paypal, and Direct checkout. As soon as the payment has arrived then your item will be shipped out in the time frame stated under the shipping tab of each product unless something else has been arranged with you the buyer.

If you would like to cancel an order you may do so through Etsy or by contacting me through a convo but it must be done before the item is made. Because most of the items are custom made once the item is made it is yours unless there is a problem with the workmanship of the item. Then we will work together to resolve the issue.
Shipping
All packages are sent out using the United States Postal Service. I try to find the most cost efficient way possible while still keeping the integrity of the purchased item. That way you don't spend all your money on shipping. If you have a preference then let me know and I would be happy to oblige.

I use the Etsy shipping services so each item will be marked as shipped with tracking information as soon as it is shipped out.

I can add insurance to an item for an additional fee. Just let me know and I can add it to the shipping cost.

I also offer an upgrade for shipping on some of my items.

► PLEASE NOTE ◄
I will NOT be responsible for packages that the USPS service has marked as delivered by your local carrier but were not received. Please contact your local carrier for further assistance.

If you would like to cancel an order you may do so through Etsy or by contacting me through a convo but it must be done before the item is made. Because most of the items are custom made once the item is made it is yours unless there is a problem with the workmanship of the item. Then we will work together to resolve the issue.
Refunds and Exchanges
I do not offer refunds on any custom made or custom embroidered items because the item is made specifically for you the buyer and usually has a name or initials on it. If there is a problem with the item then I would be happy to work with you to fix any problem with the workmanship of the product.

If the item is a ready to ship item from my shop then you can return the item for a full refund within two weeks but the buyer will need to pay the return shipping. I will then refund the cost of the item minus the cost of shipping because I have to pay shipping regardless of whether or not it was returned if the item has already been shipped to the buyer.
