Thank you sending this adorable kitchen towel so quickly! This will make the perfect gift for a sister's wedding anniversary. (She was married in 1994 and this will fit her kitchen style exactly!!)
Another lovely Mother's Day gift! Thank you for your very speedy delivery!

Thrift at Home
I love to play around with colors in patchwork, and I make more things than I can use or give. I am a self-taught sewer and quilter, so my work doesn't always fit in traditional styles. I generally limit myself to found fabric and rarely buy new fabric. Everything I sell in my shop is my own design, which I also use in my kitchen and home, so I find and fix the flaws.
Around the web
Owner, Maker, Designer, Curator
I love to sew. I treasure my Bernina. I love patchwork, found fabric, creative reuse, and calico. I'm a wife and mother, as well as a cookbook editor. I love all the domestic arts.
I find my fabric almost anywhere except from the fabric store. Most of it is vintage or upcycled, and I wash it with unscented detergent to ensure there is no shrinkage or stains, and hang it in the sun so it smells good.
I actively recycle, repurpose, and reduce waste; when you buy from my shop, you support those things too.
Accepted payment methods
- Accepts Etsy gift cards
I do accept checks. I have not had a check returned/denied for insufficient funds, so I want to keep it that way. Should it happen that a check is returned, the buyer will be assessed a $30 fee in addition to the outstanding cost of the item.
Payment is required within 3 days of purchasing, or I will cancel the sale and relist the item.
My shipping rates are for the actual shipping cost plus a small handling fee. If the items ships more cheaply than I expected, I will refund money to you via Paypal. I am not trying to profit from shipping prices.
I reuse shipping envelopes and boxes whenever I can so I can save us both money and keep things out of the landfill.
Please convo me if you want to add insurance to your shipment; I will check on the cost and add it to your order and then purchase the insurance when I ship the
